In the Hindu mythology it is said that Jogi is a class of followers, some are prognosticators of future events and others lead about animals of monstrous formation in order to excite religious wonder and curiosity.
Jogi have their ears pierced and wear in them a kind of ear-ring for sacred purposes. Persons of all castes can now enter the order, but this was not the rule originally. Jogis are not particular on the subject of marriage, and some of them take to themselves wives. At death their bodies are buried and their tombs, termed Samddh, are held in sacred estimation and are often visited by pilgrims for idolatrous purposes.
