Kayastha (Hindu traditions) of India

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

It may be helpful to emphasize the need for forgiveness, and that God has provided the way of forgiveness through his Son's death on the cross.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the few Christian believers among the Kayastha community, that they will become mature in the faith, grounded on the truth of Scripture, filled with the Holy Spirit.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the Kayastha community to increasingly hunger for eternal life found in Christ, his person and his work on the cross.
