Daily Asana, (आसन āsana "sitting down") strechting and gymnastic practice. There are those who worship the God of the High Heavens. There are those who worship God in a statue or in an image. There are those who worship the formless God. There are those who worship God in their own hearts. There are those who believe that God is the mind. The Aghoris worship God in their body or in the body of the others. Because "I am God", Aham Brahmasmi. "In the past few decades, however, the Aghori tradition has radically evolved, extending beyond the cremation grounds to become a mainstream movement known for social services, including healing of stigmatized diseases. “It’s been a remarkable transformation,” says Ron Barrett ’99G–’02PhD, a medical anthropologist and assistant professor in the school of nursing, who recently published the book “Aghor Medicine: Pollution, Death and Healing in Northern India,” through University of California Press. Aghori-type movements can be traced back to at least the 11th-century AD. The extreme practices of the Aghori holy men aimed to achieve a spiritual state of non-discrimination by seeing the divine in everything — even pollution and death. “The idea was to overcome all fears and aversions. Non-discrimination means you can have no hatred or fear of anything or anyone,” Barrett explains." https://www.emory.edu/EMORY_REPORT/erarchive/2008/August/Aug4/DisBarrettAghori.htm
