yati यति

Definition: Is the name of an ancient clan which is connected with the Bhpgns in two passages of the Rigveda, where the Yatis certainly seem to be real persons. In another hymn,* however, they already appear as almost mythical. In the Yajurveda Samhitās,and elsewhere, the Yatis are a race whom Indra, in an evil moment, gave over to the hyaenas (Sālāvfka): exactly what is referred to is uncertain. Yati is mentioned with Bhṛgu in a verse of the Sāmaveda.
