The Sanskrit terms sādhu ("good man") and sādhvī ("good woman") refer to renouncers who have chosen to live a life apart from or on the edges of society in order to focus on their own spiritual practice...

Sādhus often wear ochre-colored clothing, symbolizing their sanyāsa (renunciation)...Ochre is the term for both a golden-yellow or light yellow brown colour and for a form of earth pigment which produces the colour to create a reddish tint known as "red ochre"...
