સ્મશાન યાત્રા નાં ભજનો
The rāg of the bhajans sung during a funeral procession depends on the time of day. If the funeral procession is held between 6:00 AM and 8:00 AM, the rāg is Bilāval (બિલાવલ). From 8:00 AM to 12:00 Noon, the rāg is Āshāvari (આશાવરી). From 12:00 Noon to Sunset, the rāg is Sārang (સારંગ). Additionally, bhajans in rāg Dhol (ધોળ) and/or Mangal (મંગલ) may be sung during a funeral procession.

The following video playlist has videos of bhajans in rāg Āshāvari (આશાવરી) sung by Syadla Bhajan Mandal. It also has videos of bhajans in rāg Charchari (ચરચરી) sung by Shree Ramkabir Mandir Bhajan Mandal. These charchari bhajans are sung by bhaktas after cremation (antim-samskara અંતિમ સંસ્કાર) when they return to the home of the deceased. The first couplet is sung prior to entering the home and the rest of the bhajan is sung inside the home.
