Brahmin in India

pronounced: BRAH-min

The Brahmin are a priestly class, described as having originated from the face of Prajapati (Viratpurusha). A Brahmin concerns himself with the spiritual guidance of the people and is consulted for reading the meaning of Scripture. On auspicious dates and events he officiates at ceremonial functions. They are considered custodians and transmitters of sacred traditions. As custodians of Brahminical Hinduism, the Brahmin worship deities on a large scale.

Ministry Obstacles

Brahmin pride, and the perception that Christianity is only for outcaste "untouchables," are serious obstacles to Brahmin families and communities accepting God's blessing for families through Jesus. They also believe that missionaries pay people to become converts to win a cultural and political war with Hinduism.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for laborers to have wisdom in applying the pattern Jesus gave in Matthew 10:7-14 and Luke 10:5-11, leading to blessing among Brahmin households.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the few Brahmin Jesus-followers to be effective in demonstrating how Jesus blesses and heals families and communities.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for Brahmin families and communities to discover and embrace the free gift of life found by trusting in Christ and his finished work.

"The people who walk in darkness, will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them." Isaiah 9:2
