It has been approximately 38 years since this Indian man has been living with his arms raised to the sky.
It is quite interesting to know the reason behind it.
Sadhu (a holy man in India), this hermit, has discovered for himself an astonishing path towards the unification of the human being (body and mind).
A significant part of his life has been spent with his right arm raised. A hermit who completely dedicates himself to his God is called a sadhu or sadhou in India.
For 40 years, he led an ordinary life with his wife and children, just like any other man.
One day, he made the decision to leave his family and devote himself to God.
For 38 years, he has led a life devoid of pleasure, striving for spiritual perfection, which has resulted in his right arm’s joints being in poor condition, and the nails of that hand being neglected.
Thus, the holy hand, unwashed, has completely lost its cleanliness.
Apart from merging with cosmic consciousness, Amar has also achieved earthly success.
He has established an exceptional record by holding his raised hand for 38 years.
