Sadhu in Hinduism, refers to any ascetic or holy person. A Sādhu is primarily focused on simple life, spiritual matters and on achieving mokṣa (liberation) – the fourth and final aśrama (stage of life) in Hinduism, through yoga, meditation and contemplation of Atman and Brahman. Sādhus often wear ochre or saffron-coloured clothing, symbolising their sannyāsa (renunciation). A Sadhu may be a yogi, but all yogi are not Sadhus. A female Sadhu is referred to as Sādhvī. In Hindu texts, Sadhu and Sahvi are also referred to as Sanyasi (or Sannyasi), Bhiksu, Pravrajita/Pravrajitā, Yati and Parivrajaka.
