Killing Ascetics: From Yogiraja to Karmayogin

18 Jan '18 6.00 - 8.30 pm
 
 

The warrior ascetic was a familiar feature of the early modern military landscape. He is also, perhaps not coincidentally, an iconic figure in Indian mythology. This lecture will reflect on the figure of the warrior ascetic, especially as he comes into his own in 1792 in Bundelkhand, and how subsequently he was compelled to relinquish arms and serve the nation—or rather, how this process of ideological disarmament was only partially successful.
