What yajnas and kirtans are done during Kumbh Mela?

The pilgrims proceed to the temples, where the priests conduct the yajnas after taking a dip in the holy river. Crowds swarm the stage when Brahmins or priests kindle a sacred fire. The priests begin mouthing Sanskrit mantras to worship and ask for the blessings of the All-Powerful after making offerings to Agni, the holy god of fire. The gods and their followers are supposed to be connected spiritually through yajnas.

Kirtans are another type of spiritual recitation. Priests perform musical rituals and chant hymns of adoration that tell the folklore and traditions associated with their gods. While playing classical instruments like the harmonium, veena, sitar (a string instrument), tablas (single drums), flute, and cymbals, musicians sing along with the audience.
