Hindu Monk Pulls Entire Van With His Penis Part Of Holy Festival

A Hindu holy man has been pictured pulling a van along with a part of his body in an act that would make any man’s eyes water. The Sadhu, or baba, used his penis to pull the vehicle as a way of demonstrating his spirituality at the annual Magh Mala festival, in Allahabad, northern India.

The Magh Mala festival is organised during the Hindu religious month of Magh and sees hundreds of thousands of Hindu pilgrims meet on the banks of the Triveni Sangam where three holy rivers – the Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati – converge. Magh translated from Hindi means ‘festival of the 11th month’ and is based on the Hindu calendar. This year it began on January 2.

But this Hindu monk is not the only one to perform an impressive – if not incredibly painful – display of physical strength. Sadhus reject pleasures in pursuit of spiritual enlightenment and often rely on the generosity of strangers to enable them to survive. They often renounce all worldly possessions, with some opting to renounce clothing and go naked and perform feats of physical or mental strength in order for them to break the cycle of reincarnation, a major tenant of Hinduism. One Sadhu at a fair in Pushkar became famous for lifting a 35kg brick with his penis.
