The Conception of Sadhu :

     The Sadhu is the symbol of austere spiritual practice. The Sadhu is a live combination of penance and tolerance. The Sadhu is a flowing stream of compassion, good-will, equanimity and penance and tolerance. The Sadhu is a flowing stream of compassion, goodwill, equanimity and purity.

The twenty seven qualities of a sadhu, mentioned in the canons, are as follows-

(1-5) observe of five great vows,

(6-10) Controller and discipliner of the five senses,

(11-14) Victor of the four passions,

          Illustration :

      A Sadhu carries the five mountains of great vows (non-violence, truth, non-stealing, celibacy and detachment) on his strong shoulders. He disciplines the five senses depicted by eyes, ears, nose, tongue and limbs (body). He is equanimous towards both, who bow and respect him, as well as who, driven by anger, hurt his body and feelings. A Sadhu is not afraid of a snake or a lion and as such the ideal example of the definition-Samayae Samano hoi (he who is equanimous is a sramana).

     The meditation over the line 'Namo loe savva Sahunam' is done in sparkling black colour and it enchances the feelings of patience, forgiveness, pity, tolerance, discipline and compassion.
