Religious ascetic – The sadhu Life



One way of life in Hinduism is renunciation of the world and asceticism, which is the path of the sadhu or Hindu holy man.

The term sadhu comes from the Sanskrit for “accomplish” and can refer to any religious ascetic or holy man. They include saints of various traditions, men (and occasionally women) who have left their homes to concentrate on physical and spiritual disciplines, and also hermits, magicians and fortune-tellers (some of dubious religious intent).
