Sadhus, the holy men of India.
Sadhus live a simple life devoted to the gods. Most of them have long hair, walk from town to town, and stay in temples. Sometimes Sadhus sit outside of temples chanting holy writings in Sanskrit and receiving alms from temple visitors.
The Sadhu on this page speaks fluent English and had an academic background. He had a wife and children, but had left his old life behind for a spiritual search.
