Photos of Sadhus (Hindu holy men) in India.
In Hinduism, sadhu is a common term for an ascetic, practitioner of yoga (yogi) and/or wandering monks. The sadhu is solely dedicated to achieving the fourth and final Hindu goal of life, moksha (liberation), through meditation and contemplation of Brahman. Sadhus often wear saffron-colored clothing, symbolizing renunciation.
A Sadhu is usually referred to as Baba by common people. The word 'baba' means father, or uncle, in many Indian languages.
