Hinduism - Who Is A Jogi?

 


 (adept) (variant of yogi) An appellation for ascetics of many kinds.

It often refers to the Nathpanthis, disciples of Gorakhnath, the instructor.

The fact that yoga, especially hatha yoga, is one of the key foci in their religious life has earned them the moniker "yogis." 

The Aghoris may also be referred to by this word.
