Hinduism - Who Are The Kutichaka?


 (“appreciating the opportunity to remain at the house”) One of the Hindu ascetics' four categories.

The foundation for these four sorts was their livelihood, which was much less significant for ascetic identity than sectarianism or organizational affiliation in practice.

The Kutichaka is the least revered of the four, with the others being Bahudaka, Hamsa, and Paramahamsa (in order of increasing reverence).

The Kutichaka is an ascetic who lives in a dwelling (kuti) built by himself or his sons and begs his sons and relatives for sustenance.
