Waiting for their end, they are expected to renounce all worldly pleasures and desires and lead a life of austerity and prayer. Rules for this living death extend from food, a diet that will not ‘ warm the blood’, to their appearance, whereby they are expected to wear simple white saris and are forbidden from any form of ornamentation or efforts to enhance their physical appearance.
