A record of the celebration of a sadhu who buried himself at this spot 100 years ago. Exactly 100 years later several hundred thousand people gathered to honor him including a large number of brahmin priests and a many sadhus. At the four day celebration all of the hundreds of thousands of pilgrims were fed and given a place to sleep. The pilgrimage was also a holiday vacation for all of these people who attended special events and bought souvenirs.
I grew up in India where my parents were Presbyterian agricultural missionaries and have taught at Warren Wilson College most of my life. My photographs are of north India and Sri Lanka where I have traveled many times; of Germany, which is my wife, Kathe's, home; and of the Swannanoa Valley and Asheville, North Carolina and of students and staff at Warren Wilson College, in Swannanoa just outside Asheville. Lately I have also been photographing weddings at Hidden River Events.
