People of all backgrounds and cultures, whether they are from India or abroad are eager to know more about these mysterious Naga Sadhus and their lifestyle, philosophy, and devotion. During the holy bath in the Kumbh river in Prayagraj, it is the Naga sadhus who take the first dip in its holy waters. During the entire pujas and religious performance, the Naga sadhus generally remain completely naked and in their own natural human form. Apart from this, the Sadhus also hold the Trident in their hands while screaming out and chanting religious prayers and mantras. They smear themselves in ashes and smear the three-lined Tilak on their foreheads. It is believed that a Naga Sadhu remains naked their entire life as well as pray and perform pujas inside Caves as a way to attain the ultimate salvation as per the scriptures in the BhagavadGita and the mythological texts. Each of the Naga sadhus possesses a fiery temperament which is evident in the way they behave and perform the pooja and mantras.
The Kumbh Mela religious festival is held when Jupiter makes its entry into the Aquarius Zodiac and when the sun enters into the Aries. It is one of the most critical festivals as it enables each and every person attending it to attain salvation and to walk in the path of light. The Prayagraj place is believed to be the very symbol of Intelligence, and the path to light as well as the origin of the universe and the main center of the earth. Hindu mythology has it that even before the creation of the universe, Lord Brahma performed the AshvamedhaYagya here at this very spot. The very evidence of the performance of the AswamedhaYagya by Lord Brahma here are the Brahmeswara temple and the YashwamedhGhat.
