Pay or not to pay

Sadhu at the temple Pashupatinath, Kathmandu

The biggest challenge for me about taking picture of sadhu is not to give him money. I know that It been commercialized of taking pictures of sadhus in the temple anywhere in Nepal and India. He asked money for the 'service' but my guide said don't give anything to him. He supposed to leave the world's greeds and passions as part of living in rough to close to the God.
