May God Bless You

Hi friends, I'm back after my holidays in Rajasthan, India. What an amazing place.

First of all. Wish you all a Happy New Year.

May God Bless You in 2011.

 

Holy Man (sadhu) at the Jagdish Temple, (near city palace) Udaipur, Rajasthan, India.

In Hinduism, sadhu, or shadhu is a common term for a mystic, an ascetic, practitioner of yoga (yogi) and/or wandering monks. Sadhus are sanyasi, or renunciates, who have left behind all material attachments and live in caves, forests and temples all over India and Nepal.

There are 4 or 5 million sadhus in India today and they are widely respected: revered for their holiness, sometimes feared for their curses.
