What are these Aghoris , what do they preach, what is their way of life? These are questions that worry us most of the time. Aghoris, a term used to describe people who are most feared of and their way to attain spirituality is completely different from what we otherwise see in our daily life and practices
An Aghori is a follower of Shiva, a keen believer of the Shaivite sect, they achieve most of their recognition from the practices that they follow to attain their nirvana or to reach closer to their spirituality and their level of enlightenment. Some of these practices seem very absurd and abnormal to the moral society because they drink from skulls, eat rotten food, live in cemeteries and smear the ashes of the dead all over their body, they prefer to live in the least clothes possible and also live in unhygienic conditions. They also indulge in not so normal sexual practices and in the consumption of alcohol and marijuana.
It is certain here that they defy all our normalcy principles but the fact is that what they preach and follow are the most beautiful principles one can follow for a healthy and peaceful living. First of all they believe that God resides within every individual and that once that depth is explored there is nothing which can defy a human then, once you give yourself to the supreme purpose, you only preach equality, between men and women or human and animal. This is the reason why they see beauty in everything, so they eat from anywhere and anything, it is true that they follow cannibalism as well but the reason behind this is the equality between all lives, also they do not kill people, they eat the dead bodies. Aghoris live in cemeteries because this makes them overcome the fear of death, one of the biggest fears that all of us have and also because we are born of the five elements- fire, earth, air, water and sky and we should naturally mix into what we came from.
Aghoris believe in energies and powers that they receive from the supreme power, and by this they can control their bodily needs like temperature controls, pleasures and needs from society. They live a secluded life away from family as they believe in full detachment. Why is it that their ways are perceived to be wrong, infact they are preaching the best principles of equality, belief in God, living a basic living and in finding the purpose of life. They achieve their purpose and move closer to the supreme energy, the high of the toxic elements makes their concentration better and transcends them into a different level of trance. Hence it serves their purpose.
It is time to see the world in a more tolerant way, what one does will never be normal to the other but the reason behind everything should be understood properly. Judging a certain sect of people is not the right thing to do because we as a part of society tend to believe what is taught to us, we are all so bound towards these societal rules and regulations, that we actually forget the purpose of life, the purpose of our living. Open up to different realms, there are many more amazing worlds, other than the ones we live in.
