Subha Benaras Sadhus occupy a unique and important place in Indian Hindu society, where holiness is a way of life. When transitioning into a sadhu, men are declared formally and legally dead – they attend their own funeral, sometimes walking through a symbolic cremation fire. These holy men are on a perpetual pilgrimage, although some live in major urban cities in contemporary India. They do not work and are supported by the public through donations. There are also holy women, known as sadhvis.Aspiring to a spiritual separation from the world, they are freed of human attachments and common luxuries. #Creativeimagemagazine #instagram #natgeo #sto#storiesofindia #landscape #natgeotravel #killershot#lonelyplanetindia #_soi#indiaphotoproject #mypixeldiary #natgeopeople #vsco #myindiacnn #desi_diaries#likeforlike #fotojajs #ig_color #incredibleindia #storiesofindia #youthspowerindia #onlyinbengal#indiaphotoproject#phodus_competition#phodus#varansi#igvaransi#benaras#photosclub#theworldahotz#_instaindia_#mysimpleclick#[email protected]_of_hindustan
