“In India, I found a race of mortals living upon the Earth, but not adhering to it, inhabiting cities, but not being fixed to them, possessing everything, but possessed by nothing”
(Apollonius Tyanaeus – Neo-Pythagorean, 1st)

I met this young brahman in front of a small temple which is nearby Nepali ghat along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras).
During summer I often see people coming here to bath just before the evening in order to forget the heat of the day at the time of a king of confined ceremony performed by a few priests.
