Smiling sadhu

By sawsengee  
Street capture of a smiling hindu sadhu at the Durbar Square in Kathmandu Nepal......all dressed in safron coloured attire, orange headscarf with the hindu holy text printed on it, forehead smeared with yellow turmeric paint & 2 large strings of rudraksha beads around his neck,........ he was a picture of simplicity denouncing the material attributes of the mundane world. Smile
