I went to Pashipatinath again, this time with my Nepali class, and it was awesome again! This time I got a picture with a Sadhu that is a devotee of Rawan (Hindu satan). So there are different Sadhus (Hindu Holy Men), who are devotees of different Hindu gods. Rawan, was a Hindu god who is a devotee of Shiva, one of the main gods. Rawan has magical powers and many weapons. He is extremley knowledgable and is therefore depicted with either 9 or 10 heads and 2 ears that represent his knowledge of the 4 Vedas (Hindu Holy texts) and the 6 Shastra. He is an antagonist and wanted power over the gods so is sometimes depicted with 9 heads, because he had to sacrifice one to Shiva. Apparently, every time he
cut it off, it would grow back.
