Udhasis

Time of origin: 1494 (birth of Baba Siri Chand Maharaj), established as an institution in early 1600s

The mythological origins of the Udasis begin from the beginning of the creation of the human race with the birth of the four sons of ‘Brahma’, namely ‘Brahma’ (the priest), ‘Kyshatriya’ (the warrior), ‘Vaishya’ (the trader), and ‘Shudra’ (the labourer).

The historical origins can be dated back to the birth of Baba Sri Chand Maharaj (1494). As a formal institution, the Udasis were established in the early 1600s.
