Bhaja Govindam is one of the seemingly smaller but, in fact, extremely important works of Adi Sankara. Here the fundamentals of Vedanta are taught in simple, musical verses so that, even from early childhood, the children of the Rsis can grow up amidst the melody of Advaita.
The musical rhythm in these stanzas makes it easy even for children to remember and repeat these pregnant verses. For an intelligent young man, a sincere study of this poem can remove all his delusions (Moha), and so the poem is also called Moha Mudgara (mudgara – hammer).
