Sadhyas in Hinduism

Sadhyas are demigods in Hinduism and they live in the sky and absorb water and other liquids. Sadhyas are twelve in number and are referred as Mahatmas (great souls). They are loved and respected by the Devas and are sons of Dharma. ‘Sadhya’ means ray of light.
According to Agni Purana, there are 12 Sadhyas. They are:
Mana Manta Prana Nara Apana Viryavan Vinirbhaya Naya Damsa Narayana Vrisha and Prabhi
Sculptures of Sadhyas are depicted as seated in Padmasana. They carry Akshamala and Kamandalu (water pot).

Bhagavad Gita Chapter 9 - Verse 29 – An Explanation

I am impartial to all the created beings, I have neither any friend nor any foe. But they who worship Me by virtue of Spiritual Absorption are in Me and also I am in them – Chapter 9 Verse 29
By this the Lord sets forth His particular relationship with His Spiritual workers and also the general relation with the whole world. Many people come forward with an accusation here that the Gita bears no definite truth at all; because in the first line of this verse the Lord says that He has neither any friend nor any foe, again in the second line He contradicts His first statement by saying that His Spiritual worshippers are in Him and He is in them. Therefore it is apparent, as they say that He is subject to flattery.
This is not the case. For example; - A king is the common friend to all his subjects: this is his general favor towards his people. But a man who is his most competent minister can always live with the king: this is the special favor of the king towards his worker.
