Photographer's Note

After a holy bath which is believed to cleanse ones soul during the Ardh Kumbh festival, a Sadhu reads from the Bhagavad Gita on the banks of Sangam, the confluence of India's three holy rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati. I loved the way he was engrossed in the holy book, oblivious to my presence.
For its religious depth, quintessential Upanishadic and Yogic philosophy and beauty of verse, the Bhagavad Gita is one of the most compelling and important texts of the Hindu tradition. It is considered by many as one of the world's greatest religious and spiritual scriptures. It had always been a creative text for Hindu priests and Yogis. Almost all Hindu traditions draw upon the Gita as authoritative.
