Hinduism - Who Are The Ani Nirvani?

 

("liberated") The Nirvanis are one of the three Naga anis ("armies") of the Bairagi Nagas, renunciant ascetics who are devotees (bhakta) of Vishnu.

The Nirmohis and Digambaras are the others.

These anis were formerly genuine combat groups that earned their fortune as merchants and mercenary warriors, but nowadays they are mostly responsible for maintaining order during the Kumbha Mela's bathing (snana) processions.

The Digambaras are the most significant of the three Naga anis, and they take priority during the Kumbha Mela.
