Jogi (Hindu traditions) in Nepal

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
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.

Where are they located?
The vast majority of these Hindus are in India but some now live in Nepal or Bhutan.

What are their lives like?
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, practicing exorcisms and divination. Some do snake charming and other forms of entertainment for tourists.

What are their beliefs?
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. They worship the Hindu god, Shiva.

What are their needs?
The Jogi people have physical needs for physical and spiritual food. They need to earn a living by doing things that help people rather than deceiving them.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Holy Spirit will speak to leaders within Jogi communities in India, Nepal and Bhutan about how essential Christ is for spiritual enlightenment and salvation.
* Pray that they will soon be convicted of sin and righteousness by the Holy Spirit.
* Pray for them to begin to disciple one another in the ways of Jesus Christ.
