People that you meet in your neighborhood


It is interesting here for sure.  One of my past posts spoke of the “masks” we wear. Though the following photos do not represent the same types of masks I spoke of in my last post, they are masks just the same.

The word Sadhu is a Sanskrit term that means “good man”. Sadhus are people who have chosen to live on the edge of society in order to focus on their spiritual practice. The base of this word is supposed to mean to let good happen.  It was interesting walking through this area and having these Sadhus beckon you over to get your photo taken with them.. for a small price.

The Sadhus lifestyle does vary from place to place.  Some live in caves or huts in remote areas, some live in Ashrams or temples in large cities while other Sadhus roam from place to place throughout their lives.  The Sadhus of Pashupati seem to live in this area and depend upon the photo taking of tourists and the brotherhood of each other.  I have visited Pashupati several times and for the most part I see what appears to be the same group each visit.

Regardless of the “masks” they wear or their actual purpose. They leave a lasting and haunting impression.  I hope you enjoy the photos.

  1. Sadhus. It’s possible, perhaps, to say that many artists are sadhus – we go where we are called; we retreat to create that which our spirit dictates. We are charming when necessary to earn a living; we retreat into shadows to pray to whichever god/gods/goddess calls. Thanks for the like and the ping. I’d never found your site otherwise and it’s well constructed and interesting. And I’d never thought of the mask of sadhu as belonging to an artist. We all wear our masks, with or without All Hallows Eve; with or without recognizing them as masks. Thank you.

Watcha wanna say...
