A sadhu is a Sanyasi or a monk who wanders from place to place. He has given up all the pleasures of the world in order to attain Moksha or liberation. Sadhus can be found in caves, temples and forests throughout India and Nepal. They are either devoted to Shiva or Vishnu and occasionally to Shakti.

A wonderful portrait of this religious man, who seems to be baring his soul through his eyes. Perfectly framed and with excellent colours and sharpness.

Un superbe portrait. L'homme semble entré en lui-même. Je ne suis pas certain qu'il ait conscience qu'il soit photographié. Le format est idéal.

un magnifico ritratto di questo monaco.
Nei suoi occhi hai colto il travaglio della rinuncia ai piaceri e comodità della vita.
Immagine ieratica molto intensa...

la luce è ben dosata sul soggetto con il colore della veste che ben risalta.
Il muro grezzo fa da ottimo sfondo.

A well composed photo of this monk.The expression you have captured in his eyes is very much sorrow,and I think he has seen many horrors in the past.
A very powerful image.
Best Wishes Gladys.

Fine portrait of Sadhu.
I've always seen Sadhus on TE, seated and doing nothing except existing.
So I found your note about thier ways of life very interesting.

A fine portrait of a sadhu, who actually looks less "exotic" than many of his colleagues. The discreet colours of the background suit the composition very well.

Excellent image of the sadhu in saffron.The contrast in the complexion of the sadhu and the color of attire add to the beauty of the image. The expression on the face of the sadhu is also noteworthy.

Hi lakshmi. A sadhu with sad eyes. For me, this photo is a successful personal study, - and of course a subtle portrait. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Face with intense eyes, but with a vision in his mind.
Posting from a place and delicate hands.
A great portrait with a particularly large man.
Congratulations and thanks

Namaskar dear Lakshmi
What a fascinating man. It's only through photos like yours here on TE that I know anthing about the sadhu. They are so exotic and awe-inspiring. Wonderful colours and sharpness here. I think if you'd gotten down at eye-level, the photo would have had more impact. But that's not an easy thing - as someone who's shy when approcahing strangers, I understand the issue you faced. An amazing shot and great accompanying note.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day

His face expression doe's reveal a deeply in thought person, lakshmi, not that i know about what...
Good orange color of his sari, contrast to the whole picture.

Namaste Lakshmi.This sadhu does look otherworldly, living an austere life. His overall appearance contrasts dramatically to that of the countless "sadhus" that I have seen on TE who are real dandies, spending more time in front of their little mirrors than in meditation.One can see that those men are out there to make an impression. The road to Nirvana is not an easy one. regards. Klaudio.
