Nagas

Additional Links

a class of Hindu mendicant monks who travel about in a nude state, but armed with warlike weapons. They are not limited to one sect, there being Vaishnava and Saiva Nagas. The Sikh Nagas, however, differ from those of the other sects by abstaining from the use of arms, and following a retired and religious life.
