Khakis one of the Vaishnava (q.v.) sects of the Hindus, founded by Kil, an indirect disciple of Ramanland. They are few in number, and either reside in certain limited districts or lead wandering lives. They are distinguished from the other Vaishnava sects by the application of clay or ashes to their dress or persons. Those who reside in fixed establishments dress like the other Vaishnavas, but those who lead a wandering life go either naked or nearly so, smearing their bodies with a pale gray mixture of earth and ashes. They worship Siva, Vishnu, Sita, and Hanumar.
