LINGYATS


LINGYATS
   a HINDU SECT within aivism originating with the teachings of Basava (12th century) which concentrated on the LINGAM as the one true symbol of divinity. In theory the Sect rejects CULT images, the CASTE system and many ritual practices found in HINDUISM. The THEOLOGY of the GROUP is a FORM of qualified NON-DUALISM which sees the world as created by IVA to whom every SOUL must return. Members of the Sect wear a Ligam around their neck.
