I met Mohan in 2013 at Kumbh Mela, the world’s largest pilgrimage in Allahabad, India. I sat with him one day and at one point asked where he lived. He smiled graciously and replied, “The sky is my roof and the land is my room.” He came from a wealthy family but chose the life of a sadhu, an ascetic who is solely dedicated to the contemplation of God. Four years later I returned to India to try and find the man. Visit themanfrommathura.com to learn more.
