Jogi (Muslim traditions) of India

Introduction / History
The Nath or Nath Jogi of India are mostly Hindus and are involved in mysticism. The word Jogi means master or lord.

Most of the Nath are not vegetarians but in Himachal Pradesh they are vegetarians. In Himachal Pradesh they have adult marriages negotiated by discussion. They are endogamous, meaning they prefer to marry within the group or clan.

In Punjab they speak Punjabi and read and write in Gurmukhi. They are monogamous. Divorce and marrying again are allowed. The dead are cremated. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. They are landless. Though mostly Hindus, there are some Sikhs among them.

In Rajasthan the Nath are farmers. Education, modern medicine and family planning are used by them. They have councils to settle disagreements.

In Assam they are wet cultivators and landowners.

In Maharashtra the Nath speak Marathi and Hindi. The dead are buried. They have a low literacy level, so the gospel message will need to be given in oral form too.

In Uttar Pradesh they speak an Indo-Aryan language and Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. Most of them are landowners.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the council leaders will come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
