In Hinduism, sadhu ( "good man, holy man") denotes an ascetic, wandering monk. Although the vast majority of sadhus are yogis, not all yogis are sadhus. The sadhu is solely dedicated to achieving mokṣa (liberation), the fourth and final aśrama (stage of life), through meditation and contemplation of brahman. Sadhus often wear saffron-colored clothing, symbolizing their sanyasa (renunciation).This picture was taken in Gangasagar(West Bengal) where thousands of pilgrims from different parts of the country gather,the point where the holy river Ganges meets the sea.
