Devotee taking a spiritual bath. A devotee shows a spiritual trance expression during his bath time in the sacred river Ganga (Varanasi aka Benares, Uttar Pradesh, India).

Everyday, thousand of local Hindu devotees and pilgrims gather on the ghats, the stone steps that lead down to the Ganges River, to take ritual baths to clean their sins. They believe that bathing in the Mother Ganga purifies them, absolves them of their sins, and liberates them from the cycle of life and death.
