Description: "Naked in Ashes" chronicles the Yogis of India, including 14-year-old Santosh Giri, who follows his teacher, Shiv Raj Giri in probing the deepest mysteries of life on a 6,000-year-old path. The Yogis leave all worldly things to quest for the Divine, and travel barefoot in the snow on pilgrimage from the high Himalayas to the holiest festival, to wash themselves in the waters of immortality. Along with Santosh Giri and Shiv Raj is Raman Giri ("Standing Baba"), who remains standing for twelve years. Others pull trucks with their genitalia -- or hold one arm in the air for 12 years--on a quest to understand ultimate truth.
