Okay ! Naga Sadhu, Nepal.

By UrbaneMagick
Good morning folks. Many thanks for yesterday's votes and comments and a special thankyou to Ron (Maiwand) for his much valued user award. This particular Sadhu can be found when looking up the term "Sadhu" on Wikipedia. Naga Sadhus are generally naked and cover themselves in ash, sometimes from fires, sometimes from cremations! in the background lies the ancient temple and ghats complex of Patsupatinath.

a very fine capture of this nude-wandering, ash-smeared, spiritual man of one of the cultural capitals of the east.. His gesture is suggesting he is blessing you..

Thankyou Peekay, over here the gesture us similar to " okay", but I realise in reality, it is of Shiva, but I hadn't realised it was a blessing... Thankyou for that information, I shall treasure it Smile
