Brahmin Saraswat in India

Saraswat Brahmins are a people who lived on the banks of the former Saraswat River that once flowed in northern India. The Saraswat are considered among the oldest and most widespread communities in India, still preserving their own culture. Brahmins like the Saraswat community are the priests, scholars and teachers of the Hindu religion. Many Saraswat are employed in professions like computer science, engineering, medicine, and politics. Their primary language is Hindi. As educated Indians, they also speak English and other regional languages.

Ministry Obstacles

Brahmins believe they have everything to lose by turning from the religious system of their ancestors.

Outreach Ideas

Abundant literature is available in Hindi. Hindu background believers can share with the Saraswat the blessings that come from knowing Jesus Christ.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are no known believers among the Saraswat Brahmins. Pray that the Lord brings many Saraswat into his kingdom soon.

Pray for the entire people group

* Pray for Christ to reveal Himself to Saraswat Brahmin leaders so that they can enter into God’s eternal blessing. * Pray for Saraswat Brahmin families to be drawn by the Holy Spirit to seek forgiveness, and to understand the adequacy of Christ’s work on the cross. * Pray for Holy Spirit directed followers of Christ to go to Saraswat Brahmin communities.
