redneck you might like this one - these people are the nagas - practicers of shaivism that believe that they are descended from snakes. This article describes a tradition where they believe that they can enter an underground realm through a tunnel in the water at the kumbh mela... They are feared due to their matted hair and their unusual appearance. And their role in the spiritual world is always shrouded in mystery. The Naga baba (naked warrior mendicant) belongs to a sect that has no material bonding, lives a rigorous life and performs rituals to appease Lord Shiva -- the divine destroyer. They are mostly smeared with ash, carry traditional weapons like the trident, smoke cannabis or hashish and can perform incredible feats and yoga asanas. These sadhus every year flock from various parts of the country to the foot of the Girnar mountain at Junagadh district in Gujarat to celebrate Mahashivratri and take the much awaited dip at the famous Mrigi Kund (pond) at the Lord Shiva temple. Many perform yagnas (offerings) like the Mrityunjay Yagna, which is believed to have powers to bring back the dead. Legend has it that three sadhus out of many who take a dip at the Mrigi Kund vanish into the waters. Unfazed by the changing times, however, the Naga sadhus believe in the spiritual powers of the kund. According to a legend Lord Shiva himself had taken bath here and the water, which has sulphur, is a sign of his divine presence. Gopalgiri, a Naga sadhu from Himachal who has been visiting Junagadh for past 20 years, says the mystery surrounding the kund is one of the most known ones. "Legend also has it that there is a secret tunnel under water from where they go to another place," Gopalgiri said. "No ordinary man can try to unearth this secret route by trying to take a dip. Only a true sadhu can detect it and go past it if his calling has arrived," he added with caution. Unperturbed by changing times the Naga sadhus maintain that it is due to their extreme penance under harsh conditions that they are able to ward off many evils in the world. Nagas like Acharya Lalchadi Giri from Uttaranchal say they are drawn to the Mahashivratri celebrations by the mystical power of Lord Shiva.

yes but i thought it would be interesting to redneck and mr Big1 because of the inner earth reptilian ideas that they are interested in - the Nagas believe they are descended from half snakes, and are followers of the 'old' relgion of shaivism that was assimilated by the invading aryan and phoenician tribes. What you have here is a tribe of people that believe they are half snake, that go through an underwater tunnel to an inner earth realm and practice ancient mystery religions.
