Life of sadhus - The ultimate freedom

Alexandre Sattler documents sadhus that didn't remain unknown to men before they unite with the Universe, during Kumbh Mela, the largest gathering of humanity on earth.

Since the dawn of time and still today, Indian society allows everyone, man or woman, to abandon everything definitively, their family, their friends, profession, and comfort, to leave to live on the path in search of the divine by becoming a sadhu.

The sadhus are no longer accountable to society. They are "dead to the world”, and they form a parallel universe with its own codes. 

They fascinate and sometimes scare, but they are real "heavenly tramps".
