For the first two hours every morning everyone staying at the ashram gathers for chanting. To get this shot, I had to force my way into a dusty, cob-web filled library and peek through a tiny slit in the window. Only when the participants roared in chorus 'Shanti, om," which means peace, could I click the shutter.
