Devotional songs and meditation
2013-2014
VRINDAVAN, INDIA - MARCH 29: Widows at a session of devotional songs and meditation in Meera Sehbhagini Mahila Ashray Sadan in Vrindavan in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh on March 29, 2013 in Mathura, India. A widow in the centre of the place reads from religious book, the Bhagwat Geeta. A Bhajan session essentially comprises devotional songs in the praise of Lord Krishna and His beloved wife Radha, who hold an august position in the Hindu religion, reading from the religious book and meditation. A Bhajan session lasts two-three hours each, morning and evening. Each such session is also a source of a small income for a widow. Hence a widow gets paid about Rs 5 (about $US 0.09) and little food by the management of a Bhajan Ashram for participating in a Bhajan session.
