Increasing number of sadhus in the Kathmandu valley ensure the approach of Mahashivaraatri. But Pashupati Area Development Trust (PADT) has taken action against a dozen of Sadhus for rampant selling of hashish and marijuana in and around the Pahsupati temple. The Sadhus who were caught doing business on Friday and Saturday were banished from the temple premises.
The Sadhus with blood shed red eyes with dreadlocks were found freely selling hashish and marijuana-both considered as delicacies of Lord Shiva. Sadhus claimed that they never forced people to buy them but they (people) voluntarily approached to Sadhus to buy them.
However, ascetic Swami Hari Das from Nagaland, India, said that those who sell marijuana in the name of Lord Shiva are not real Sadhus. He added, “real Sadhus are never in need of money, so they do not have to sell drugs for money.”
