Participation in mass gatherings can benefit well-being : longitudinal and control data from a North Indian Hindu pilgrimage event
We report questionnaire data from a longitudinal survey of a sample of pilgrims who attended a large Hindu pilgrimage event and a sample of comparable others who did not. We found that the well-being of those attending the event improved in comparison with those who did not. This implies that participation in collective events can be benefeical for well-being.
