The Radhi Brahmins are mainly in India's eastern state of West Bengal, but also in Dhaka and other provinces of Bangladesh. Brahmins are the key community that has traditionally upheld Hinduism. Though Brahmins have their origins as priests and gurus, most Radhis have other occupations in today's world. Some benefit from owning farmland while others are businessmen.
Since they have the highest status of any Hindu community, Brahmins believe that they have everything to lose by converting to another religious system, and most believe that switching to a "different god" will result in an inferior reincarnation after they die. High caste communities like the Brahmins often have pride in their status, and pride is an enemy of faith.
To reach them for Christ, someone will have to enter their world and learn how to communicate in the Brahmin way. This will involve much listening and learning before speaking.
"I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken." Psalm 62:1-2
Pray that many from this people group will make Christ the rock of their salvation this decade.
Pray that the light of the gospel will break through the veil that blinds this community. Pray that the Holy Spirit will reveal Christ to this community and use Brahmins to preach and teach about Jesus Christ to all Hindu communities. Pray for a massive movement to Christ in the Radhi community.
