pronounced: kay-AHS-tah, sur-AHV-stahv

The Kayastha Sribastab are a Hindu people who live in north and central India. They were traditionally members of a caste of scribes who kept written records for the kingdoms of north India. At times the Kayastha held a near monopoly of government positions in accounting and administration. Today the Kayastha are employed in the professions, the arts and in government administration. Their primary language is Hindi. As educated Indian people they also speak English.

Ministry Obstacles

The high position of the Kayastha in Indian society made be an obstacle in their coming to Christ.

Outreach Ideas

Bibles, literature and radio programs are available in Hindi. Kayastha students studying in the west may be more open to hearing about the claims of Christ.

Prayer Items

Pray that God will bring many of them into his kingdom. * Pray that God moves Hindu background believers to share the good news with the Kayastha. * Ask God to deliver families and communities within the Kayastha people from fears that hinder them from embracing His blessings. * Pray for a movement to Jesus to multiply among Kayastha households.

Scripture Focus
