Here is a list for you - The World of Aghori Sadhus: Finding Purity in the Filthiest

1. Breaking the Limits

Breaking the Limits

One might find it uncanny but these sadhus have accustomed to cannibalism as a way of living (Don’t worry they won’t eat you alive, only when you are dead) They are famous for their bizarrely astonishing appetite. From feces to rotten leftover, they eat everything you will never agree to eat at any cost. What more? They do this for reminding themselves to be down to earth!

2. The Weird Love Affair with the Dead

The Weird Love Affair with the Dead

The strange obsession with the dead is taken to another level by these sadhus. Not only are they believed to have an affair with the dead but also have creepy sexual rituals. They make sure that the sexual act is performed on the cremation ground while the woman is all covered with the ashes of the dead. She is also supposed to be on her menstrual cycle (Gross right?). Aghoris and their sexual partners perform the act in an unusual state of trance, imitating Shakti and Shiva.

3. The Spooky Vogue

The Spooky Vogue

The Aghoris are actually not shy of the body and hence feel that there is nothing to hide about it. You will usually spot them naked even in the worst weather conditions. Smearing their bodies with the ashes of the dead, these sadhus wear the human skulls as jewelry around their necks.

4. The Signature Dreadlocks

The Signature Dreadlocks

Aghoris don’t go to salons! They don’t even believe in haircuts. These sadhus are least bothered about hygiene and let their hair grow throughout their lives. What? Thinking of Bob Marley? Wait! He wasn’t an Aghori sadhu!

5. Stay High!

Stay High!

Aghoris are mostly seem smoking weed and even when stoned they seem most calm and sober. They believe it is through trance that they concentrate on the yogic and religious practices. Wow! Weed for a spiritual experience!

They may seem spine-chilling but they are pretty chilled out. The debate whether their world is mysterious or spurious has been an old one. What do you think?
