Smoke and Sadus

Pashupatinath / Kathmandu / Nepal
28 images

Every year a flock of pilgrims and holy men descend on the Hindu temple of Pashupati in the city of Kathmandu. Their colours and characters fill the usually quiet courtyards of the temple. Smoke fills the air from burning logs used to boil cups of tea and stay warm. On their path to spiritual heights the Sadus and Babas also smoke a little weed, and for the day of Shivaratri the laws that prohibit marujuana in Nepal are relaxed.
