The Sadhus Of Nepal - Part 4

This Sadhu was reading and studying his text on the outskirts of Pashupatinath Temple. It's really amazing to see all the beautiful colors everywhere. And not subtle colors either - striking, bold, colors.

I'm used to seeing swastikas in Buddhist temples, but it is quite common to see them in Hindu temples as well. This clockwise swastika symbolizes surya (sun) and prosperity. A little ironic since Sadhus give up their worldly possessions.
