Kaupina is the sanskrit name for an Indian form of male underclothing. It is often interpreted as loin cloth[e]. In form, it is a rectangular piece of cloth with a horizontal thread at one end for binding it around the waist of the wearer. It has religious significance attached to asceticism for the Hindus. Bhagavata Purana enjoins that a true ascetic shouldn't wear anything other than a kaupina . Sri Shankaracharya composed a verse called Kaupina Panchakam to assert the significance of asceticism.
