Kayastha (Hindu traditions) in India

pronounced: kay-AHS-tah

The earliest textual references to this community occur around the first century BC or first century AD. The recorded evidence of the Kayastha as a caste appeared for the first time during the ninth century AD. The Kayastha claim that Chitragupta, the registrar of Yama, the god of death, is their legendary ancestor. They hold the view that Chitragupta was created by Brahma, and was entrusted to record all the good and evil actions of all beings.

Ministry Obstacles

The Kayastha may see Jesus as just one more god of many.

Outreach Ideas
