A sadhu is a religious ascetic, mendicant (monk) or any holy person in Hinduism and Jainism who has renounced the worldly life. They can be a man or a woman.
There are 4 to 5 million sadhus in India today and they are widely respected for their holiness. It is also thought that the austere practices of the sadhus help to burn off their karma and that of the community at large. Thus seen as benefiting society, sadhus are supported by donations from many people.
They generally walk or travel over distant places, homeless, visiting temples and pilgrimage centers as a part of their spiritual practice.
I have heard of Pilgrims that have done this in America, but they are hard to find.
Could you ever choose this as an option for your life?
