Brahmins perform Hindu rituals but only a subset of Brahmins are involved in priestly duties including teaching and preaching. In modern times they have excelled as educators, law makers, scholars, doctors, writers, poets, land owners, engineers, and politicians. Brahmins in Nepal have very high status in this Hindu-majority nation.
Brahmins are taught at an early age that they are at the top of the Hindu social order. This can easily produce spiritual pride, which is anathema in God's sight. Hindus believe that they have everything to lose by "changing religion," so believers must make it clear that they are actually asking Brahmins to give their devotion to Jesus Christ rather than to a different religious system.
It will take believers from a privileged community to reach the Brahmins in Nepal. Though there are many Hindu-background believers in Nepal, it might be best for believers from the West to reach them.
"Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding." Isaiah 40:28
Pray that they will soon understand that God is all-powerful and all-knowing.
There are no known followers of Christ among the Brahmins in Nepal, so pray that the Holy Spirit will begin to draw them to the person, Jesus Christ. * Brahmins are a key community in Nepal. Please pray that the light of the gospel breaks through the veil that blinds this community to what Jesus Christ can do for their people. * Pray that the true God will reveal Himself to this community and use Brahmins to preach and teach about Jesus Christ to other Hindus in Nepal.
