Here are some pictures clicked in 1920 by a photographer in colonial India that speaks volumes about the pain these sadhus endure and still feel the bliss.

Myriad needle-sharp points stabbing into the back of this sadhu but breaking neither his skin nor his slumber:

 Reading on a nail bed like it’s a pleasant spring afternoon

And posing on a nail bed – like a boss.

It looks like they’re just going on with their days like it’s really no big a deal. They’ve got some swag up there.



And here I am, panicking at a mere sight of them on those prickly nails.
