In spite of its prohibition by the Indian government since 1988, the Jogini system knows a strong expansion. Servants of God, the members of Jogini dedicate their life with the Yellama goddess, who in return gives them the quality of divinity. Today, this secular tradition which does not concern that the women degenerates into prostitution. Since they devoted their existence to this "religion", the women joginis lose the right to marry. But they cannot refuse to offer their body to whoever wishes to have sexual relations with them. In the area of Andra Pradesh, in the south of India, one counts more than 30.000 Joginis. And of the thousands of others are dispersed inside the country. Without speaking about the sisters of the women joined, they also forced to perpetuate the tradition. This system generated a number growing illegitimate children, all private of education. one can see the meetings of initiation of a small girl and a young woman "married" with the temple of the goddesses to become in their turn of Joginis.

Though banned by the Indian government since 1988, the Jogini system is still widespread in India. Joginis are said to be being useful of God and are dedicated to the goddess Yellama, who in return rewards them with divine qualities. This centuries old tradition, which concerns only women, has declined today into prostitution. Ounce committed to the "religon," the Joginis can't marry nor can they refuses sex to any man who wants it. Andra Pradesh, south of India, has more than 30,000 joginis. And thousands more can be found throughout the country. Not to mention the daughters of joginis who are forced to carry on the tradition. This system has resulted in a growing number of illegitimate, uneducated children.

Aman ji,

I really appriciate your awareness about the current affairs such as Jogini System. Its really a matter of deep concern that despite teachings of many Mahapurushas and scriptures, we are still suffering from such practices. That too perticularly in India which plethora of Mahapurushas indigenously belong to. I really feel sorry about it and hope tha one day we all wake up to the real teachings of Sri Guru Granth Sahib and thereby eradicate such undesirable practices from our country.

Humbly
