Brahmin Saraswat in India

pronounced: sah-rah-WAHT BRAH-min

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.

Scripture Focus

May the nations praise you, O God! Yes, may all the nations praise you. Let the whole world sing for joy, because you govern the nations with justice and guide the people of the whole world. Ps 67:3-4
