Photographer's Note

A sadhu (or "holy man"), taken at Pashupatinath Temple, Nepal's most important Hindu Temple.

"In Hinduism, sadhu is a common term for an ascetic or practitioner of yoga (yogi) who has given up pursuit of the first three Hindu goals of life: kama (pleasure), artha (wealth and power) and even dharma (duty). The sadhu is solely dedicated to achieving moksha (liberation) through meditation and contemplation of God." (excerpt from Wikipedia)

Note: He still asked for 100 rupees, though!
