Brahmin Kanaujia in India

pronounced: kuh-NO-gee-ah BRAH-min

The Kanaujia or Kanyakubja Brahmins receive their name from Kanauj, an ancient city of northern India. The Brahmins are the highest of the four main castes of Hinduism. The Brahmins are the priests, teachers and keepers of the sacred traditions of Hinduism. The Kanaujia descend from royalty and large landowners of the colonial period. Today the Kanaujia Brahmins work at the highest level of Indian society in medicine, government, law, science, and business.

Ministry Obstacles

Kanaujia Brahmins are proud of their Hindu heritage and high position in society. Pride can prevent people from confessing their need for a savior.

Outreach Ideas

Kanaujia students studying in the West will be more open to the gospel than those in their homeland. Hindu background believers can explain to the Kanaujia the blessings of knowing Christ.

Scripture Focus

You have tested us, O God; you have purified us like silver. Ps 66:10

Scripture Prayer

Pray for the Lord to test and purify today’s people group.
