How the day of a Sadhu begins.
As Wiki gives an introduction to the term ‘Sadhu’,
In Hinduism, sadhu is a common term for a mystic, an ascetic, practitioner of yoga (yogi) and/or wandering monks. The sadhu is solely dedicated to achieving the fourth and final Hindu goal of life, moksha (liberation), through meditation and contemplation of Brahman. Sadhus often wear ochre-colored clothing, symbolizing renunciation.
‘Sadhu!’ is also a Sanskrit and Pali term used as an exclamation for something well done.
