JAGARNATHPUR

Thousands of families of the tribals and various other castes of Hindus in Ranchi district are strictly vegetarian. Some of the tenets of the Tanabhagats, a class of purists among the aboriginals that came into prominence in the 20th century, are based on Vaishnavism. The Tanabhagats do not touch any intoxicant and do not cat meat. They have a high standard of values, of love and truth, and live in bonds of brotherhood with one another. They are very steadfast and rigid in their principles and when they joined the Non-Cooperation Movement they did so with a religious fervor.

Another movement of the Puritans among the tribals, known as the Safa Hor Movement in the later part of the 19th century, could also be directly traced to the influence of Vaishnavism. The Safa Hor Movement wanted the people to live a clean life, abhor intoxication and be strictly vegetarian. The Safa Hor adherents believe in Gurus, respect and cherish fellowship and recognize love, peace and amity as the means to get nearer to God.
