Even according to experts, Aghori has always been the subject of special discussion. In such a situation, this time we are telling you about the mysterious world of Aghoris and Aghorpant…

Actually the Aghor sect, the Aghor sect or the sect of Aghoris, is a sect of Hinduism. Those who follow it are called ‘Aghori’. According to the belief that its originator is Aghornath Shiva himself, the idol of Rudra is called Aghora or Mangalamayi in the Shvetashvatropanishad (3-5).

Or that Rudra Shiva Tanurghora Papakashini.
Tayya Nastanuva Shantamaya Girishintabhichakshihi॥

meaning-“O Girishtant means Rudra who spreads happiness by being situated on a mountain. You should see us through your Magalmayi idol who, being gentle, is only giving the fruits of virtue.”

Lord Shiva is believed to be the originator of this cult. It is said that Lord Shiva himself propounded the Aghor cult. Avadhoota Lord Dattatreya is also considered to be the Guru of Aghorshastra. Avadhoot also considers Dattatreya to be an avatar of Lord Shiva. According to the beliefs of the Aghor sect, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva incarnated by Dattatreya ji in the form and part of these three.

Aghorpanth is a mysterious branch of sadhana. They have their own legislation, their own method, their own different way of living life. Aghorpanthi seekers are called Aghori. There is no way of eating and drinking. Aghoris eat everything else except cow meat. Cremation practice has special significance in Aghorpanth, that’s why Aghori likes to dwell at the crematorium. Meditation in the crematorium is soon fruitful.

Baba Kinaram is worshiped as a saint of this sect. According to the Aghor sect, followers of Shiva, Shiva is complete in itself and the root, Chetan is present in all forms. Salvation can be attained by meditating on this body and mind and experiencing the root-conscious and all the situations and knowing them.

Apart from this, such old views are also known in foreign countries, especially in Iran, and some scholars of the West have also discussed them.

The discoveries of Henry Balfour have revealed that the followers of this cult consider their views to have been promoted by Guru Gorakhnath, but its chief preacher was Motinath, whose subject has not yet been known.

Aghor Sadhanas are mainly performed at cremation ghats and uninhabited places. Corpse cultivation is a special action by which various stages of one’s own existence are experienced symbolically. According to the Aghor belief, the word Aghor is basically made up of two words ‘A’ and ‘Ghor’ which means one who is not stoic which means easy and simple.

Every human is innate in nature, Aghor. As the child grows up, he learns to differentiate and later inside him evils and evils and he is no longer in his original nature ie Aghor.

Aghor can come back to its natural and original form through spiritual practice and attainment of salvation is possible only with the knowledge of this basic form.

The practitioners of this sect wear a garland of male hens for visualization and also use male hens as characters. The use of pyre ashes on the body and cooking food on the pyre are common functions. There is no difference of location in Aghor sight i.e. palace or crematorium are the same.

The major branches of Aghor Panth are three.
1. Auger
2. Sarabhangi
3. Ghure

In the Auaghar branch was Kallusinh, the guru of Baba Kinaram. Some people refer to this cult even earlier than Guru Gorakhnath and associate it with the Pashupat or Kalamukh sect of Shaivism. At the same time some believe that since Baba Gorkhanath has been seen in every era, therefore this sect also has an association with them.

Baba Kinaram, born in Ramgarh village of Banaras district, was Aghori and lived in a vacant sense since childhood. He first took initiation from Baba Sivaram Vaishnav, but then he was also influenced by some Mahatma of Girnar. It is believed that that Mahatma is none other than Guru Dattatreya, towards whom he himself has made some hints.

Baba Kinaram established four monasteries at Ramgarh, Deval, Hariharpur and Krumikund respectively, out of which Kramikund is the fourth principal center. This cult is also commonly called ‘Ouddhpant’.

The propagation area of ​​the branch named ‘Ghure’ of Aghor Pant is not known, but the existence of ‘Sarabhangi’ branch is visible especially in the Champaran district where there have been many Acharyas like Bhinakaram, Tekmanram, Bhikhanram, Sadanand Baba and Balkhand Baba. Many of these compositions are available in plenty and they also throw a lot of light on the ideology of this branch.

‘Viveksara’ is one of the main texts of this sect in which Baba Kinaram discusses the worship of Atmaram and his self-realization. According to him, there is truth or niranjan which is present in all wide and prevalent forms and whose existence is simple form.

The scripture also describes the organs of which the first three have a description of the creation, metamorphosis, Pindabrahmand, Anahatnad and Niranjan. The next three discusses yoga cultivation, the state of uninterruptedness, self-thought, spontaneous samadhi, etc., and the remaining two are about the self-realization of the whole world and walking according to mercy, wisdom, etc. for self-realization.

The special thing is that its followers are people of all castes, (even Muslims). William Crook has described the first place of Aghorpanth as the Abu Mountains of Rajputana, but its propagation is known even to distant places like Nepal, Gujarat and Samarkand and its number of followers is not small.

Aghori perform three ways of meditation in the cremation ground – cremation practice, Shiva cultivation, corpse cultivation. Such sadhanas often occur in the cremation grounds of Tarapith, the cremation of Kamakhya Peeth, the cremation of Trimbakeshwar and Chakratirtha of Ujjain. 10 Tantric Peeth of Aghor Panthites are considered.
