Saddhu. Patna.

A sleepy saddhu at the door of a small temple in Patna. The Saddhu tradition has a long history. It consists of renouncing
worldly ties in pursuit of higher values of life. Ideally a sadhu lives in the society but is detached from its pleasures and pains.

Saddhus typically survive on bhiksha (alms) provided by families, and on natural resources, and they spend much of
their time in meditation.
