Holy Man at Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu, Nepal
The blazing sun shines down, warming the ground as we walk through Pashupatinath Temple, exploring every nook and cranny from behind a camera lens. A bead of sweat drips down the back of my leg as I take shelter from the heat under a nearby eave.
As we enter the courtyard of another temple, my attention is drawn to an old man who is sitting in the sun, in the middle of the courtyard.
He is sitting indian style and smoking a cigarette. In front of him lies a pack of smokes and a box of matches.
He looks to be sitting on a mat made of straw, which protects his bare feet and legs from the blistering cement.
I’m captured by his fluid and tranquil movements. He gives off a sense of calmness.
I’m not sure who he is, but to me he embodies the spirit of a holy man. He has an air of holiness (and smoke) around him.
