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.
