Udaipur, India - May 7, 2009: Portrait of an old man in traditional Indian clothing. (India-Udaipur)Sadhus, Babas are called, mendicants and holy men of Hinduism. Through constant repentance and ascetic lifestyle they wish to attain enlightenment. The world is viewed only as a sham, also called 'Maja' called. Try the holy men of this world, therefore, to renounce. Mundane things like possessions, wealth and human bonds are rejected, also active actions to improve the karma. Through this asceticism space for the path into the divine reality is created.
