Bodh (Buddhist traditions) in India

The Bodh people live in a region described as having, "…an inhospitable terrain with little vegetation as the area falls in the arid zone. It has very scanty rainfall. Stone boulders and loose rocks keep falling all over and on small patches of terraced fields, which are usually near the riverbeds." It is very difficult to grow enough crops or support livestock in this kind of climate. But their spiritual lives are even more difficult. They depend on shamans to take care of their spiritual needs, and the spirits demands a price. The Bodh people live without a God of love and mercy.

Ministry Obstacles

They live in a remote region high in the Himalayan Mountains. There are strong spiritual barriers that have not been challenged for centuries.

Outreach Ideas

Believers in India can carry the message of Christ to the Bodh people. It will take people with an ability to climb the high mountains and overcome the obstacles of Satan, leaning entirely on the power of the Holy Spirit.

Scripture Focus

"And they stood up in their place and read from the Book of the Law of the LORD their God for a quarter of the day; for another quarter of it they made confession and worshiped the LORD their God."  Nehemiah 9:3

Scripture Prayer

Pray that hearing the word will lead to deep repentance.

Prayer Focus

Ask God to lead faithful workers to reach out to the Bodh people with the message of salvation. Pray that the Bible and gospel recordings would be translated and widely distributed. Pray for a Disciple Making Movement among the Bodh people that would shake the foundations of their spiritual lives and bless them for eternity.
