Varanasi and Kathmandu are considered to be holy places for many people in the world. These cities are home for devotees who abdicate of everything in their lives, sometimes including their family or even their name, to pursue a spiritual path. Whether is meditating, practicing benevolent actions, renouncing material goods or keeping quiet by making a vow of silence, their devotion seems to rule their lives and, certainly, give them a very special way of think about human kind and modern societies. Meet people with such a commitment and spent time with them was also a journey of learning.
