Scene from “Holy Men”…focuses on four different individual sadhus or sannyasins (holy men): (1) the administrator of a Ramakrishna Mission hospital, (2) a traditional guru who heads a monastery and instructs disciples, (3) a recluse with no organizational ties, and (4) a scholar who is also a founder of a national political party. Although each sadhu has severed his ties with the secular world in an effort to achieve moksha (release from reincarnation), each still maintains sacredly-articulated relationships with the secular world. Interviews with the sadhus and with lay people reveal a wide range of opinions on the roles of sadhus in contemporary Hindu society.
