An Aghori sadhu sits by the Ganges River in Varanasi, India.

The Aghori are ascetic Shaiva Sadhus.They believe that Shiva is All and in all, the creator, preserver, destroyer, revealer and concealer of all that is.The Aghori are known to engage in post-mortem rituals. They often dwell in charnel grounds, have been witnessed smearing cremation ashes on their bodies, and have been known to use bones from human corpses for crafting skull bowls (which Shiva and other Hindu deities are often iconically depicted holding or using) and jewelry.
