A sight peculiar to India and Hinduism is that of saffron-clad hermits with matted locks who often travel from one holy place to another with scarcely a possession in the world. Their bodies smeared with ash, forehead anointed with sandalwood paste, sadhus carry all their material possessions with them: a begging or alms bowl, a wooden staff, a woolen blanket and many a rudraksha(holy fruit) or tulsi(holy tree) mala around their neck or wrists.
