Jogi (Hindu traditions) in India

Summary
Jogi is a colloquial term for the "yogi", which refers to the people who practiced Yoga as part of their daily rituals. Over time, this led to the formation of a community, and subsequently was formed into a caste. The Jogi are followers of yoga and worshipers of the Hindu god Shiva. The Yoga system of philosophy taught the means whereby the human soul might attain complete union with the Supreme Being. The modern Jogi, speaking generally, claims to have attained that union and to be, therefore, a part of the Supreme. As followers of the yoga, they traditionally wear saffron-colored clothing. The Jogi are made up of purely religious mendicants (i.e., beggars) of the various Jogi orders, various people who live by fortune telling, practising exorcisms and divination, and others.

Ministry Obstacles
The Jogi community speaks several languages, and each language subgroup may need its own church planting project.

Outreach Ideas
Pray the Jogi people will discover the availability of scripture and videos such as the Jesus film on the Internet. Pray the Lord will prompt many to download and listen to these resources, and that they will be given understanding.

Pray for the followers of Christ
None of the Jogi community has reported themselves as Christians to the census in Pakistan, India, Nepal or Bangladesh. Please pray the Lord will show them they can indeed be united with the Supreme Being, through trust in God's Son, Jesus Christ.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Jogi will be able to find employment to enable them to improve their standard of living. Pray they will be able to escape a begging mentality.

Scripture Focus
"For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea." Habakkuk 2:14
