APTOPIX India Maha Kumbh

APTOPIX India Maha Kumbh

Hindu holy men get their beards and heads shaved before being initiated as Naga sadhus or naked Hindu holy men at the Maha Kumbh festival in Allahabad, India, Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013. The significance of nakedness is that one will not have any worldly ties to material belongings, even something as simple as clothes. Rituals that transform selected holy men to Naga can only be done at the Kumbh festival. (AP Photo/ Saurabh Das)
