  • Lingayats are followers of Basavanna, the social reformer who rebelled against the rigid caste systems.
    Among the more powerful sects within the Lingayat community is the VeeraShaiva Sadar and Veerashaiva Panchamasali.
    The Panchamasalis are traditionally cultivators. The Sadars are also called sadhu Lingayats who are followers of the Veerashaiva Saint Marularadhya.
    There is an hierarchy or rank maintained based on which sub caste marriages are decided. You need to speak to one of the elders or the peetha authorities to clarify further.
