Why do Aghoris eat human flesh?
They eat the flesh of human as a part of their aghor practice but they do not kill any creatures just to fill their stomach. They only eat the abandoned dead bodies in the cremation grounds. The government does not punish them for this as they are not doing anything illegal. It is a test meant for Aghoris from their guru.
Their idea behind sadhana (Aghor practice) on cremation ground is to destroy the fear of death which is the greatest fear of all living creatures on the earth. They also seek to free themselves from the bonds of greed, obsession, anger, and sensual pleasure and become Sadashiv. Aghori perform three types of practices Shiva sadhna, cremation, and cremation sadhana. In Shiva sadhana, keeping the feet above the dead body and doing meditation is done. The rest of the way is similar to cremation.
The clan does not have any sort of hatred or contempt in them. A true aghor is known to be above human frailties like fear or hatred, he or she is always on a devotional path of intense yogic and tantric sadhana.
