Sadhu Life -with Ali

sadhu 2  Ali reports from India:

Everyday we sit at the fire (dhuna) of naga baba Akandanand Saraswati. He is a bit of a rock star sadhu but very good humored. Sadhu life is a mix of discipline and ritual.

Flags fly, fires burn, wood turns to ash (basmi) and this ash is rubbed into the naga baba’s skin. When the chillum is about to be lit the sadhu calls Alak! The days roll into night!
