Description

About the Book

There are millions of them-these wandering Indian renunciants, begging monks, mystical walkers, roaming philosophers, miracle-workers, hashish smokers, holy men... but little is known about them. They are often photographed yet their words are seldom heard.Some began this way of life from childhood, others were civil servants, shopkeepers, real estate agents, thieves... they left their familiesand jobs to become renunciants, sadhus. They refuse to work; and vow not to accept any wages. They pursue the path of liberation.A few accomplish rigorous austerities, but most of them dedicate themselves to non-action. In a world verging on its short termecological doom and demographic tsunami, the sadhus are the messengers of a kind of freedom and moderation that our commercialcivilization has forgotten, with its preaching of labour, consumption, economic growth and competition.

Patrick Levy recounts their everyday lives, the respect they are given and how they make use of it, their teachings, their philosophy andthe way they transform it into a lifestyle.

'Sadhus-going beyond the dreadlocks' is a novel written in the form of a road movie. It is a spiritual journey into the world of sadhus.
