Definition

An aghori sadhu or aghori is a practitioner of the spiritual discipline known as aghora which can be interpreted as ‘deeper than deep’ or ‘the left-hand path.’ Aghora is part of what Hindus call Tantra. Ritualized necrophilia, ritualized ophiophagy or the consumption of human flesh, excessive consumption of alcohol and drugs are all part of the aghori way if you will. The Aghories have no dietary or sexual restrictions, unlike most sects in what is loosely labelled hinduism. The word aghori is sometimes used to describe gluttons or excessively indulgent personalities.

Usage

Dont be such an aghori and leave some kapura and kutti pi for the relatives!
