A devotional song, based Bahá'u'lláh's unity prayer, sung in the traditional way of India. Such songs, usually in praise of Krishna and other Vaishnavite deities, are known as "bhajans". It was not until the Baha'is of India in the 1960s learned to deliver the Message in this way that the Faith began to spread like wildfire in some rural areas there, as a very enlightening article in World Order magazine has pointed out.
