Sri Devpuriji was called Abunathswami, that is the title of a saint or yogi who is connected to the holy place Mount Abu in Rajasthan, India. The Nath tradition was founded by Matsyendranath and further developed by Yogi Gorakshnath.
Sri Devpuriji was also an Avadhuta saint – one who does not identify with his body, mind or any names and forms. Such a person is held to be pure consciousness. Avadhuta saints play a significant role in the history and rejuvenation of tradition of Sat Sanatan Dharma.
