Documentaries {3} ~ Watch “Aghori: Holy Men Of The Dead 💀(Documentary about India’s Cannibals) अघोरी बाबा” on YouTube

Shrouded in an aura of mystery, the Aghori sadhus’ are know for post-mortem rituals – in particular the practice cannibalism. Aghoris live among India’s cremation sites – where Lord Shiva and goddess Kali Ma are said to dwell – and feed on what others throw away. Bodies are often cremated and then scattered into the sacred Ganges river, but some bodies are disposed of without cremation. The Aghori are said to collect these remains and use them for their spiritual enlightenment, wearing the corpses, consuming them or building alters from them.
