Introduction

The Karhade (Karada) Brahmans in India mainly speak Marathi and Konkani. They are known for being good engineers and have maintained their skills in water cultivation and irrigation techniques. Many developed betel nut orchards. Their Brahman status has allowed them to enter many professional and business vocations.


Ministry Obstacles

Arya Durga is their main deity, and they keep an elegant statue of her in their temples. Karhade Brahmans believe that Arya Durga shines like the sun and gives them many treasures. Some believe she can dwell on the sun and that any radiance here on earth comes from her. They also believe in Shakti, the personification of God's energy through a female figure.


Outreach Ideas

The Karhade Brahmans are noted for participating in music and other art forms. They are also noted for being excellent chefs, according to Wikipedia. People who want to share Christ with them can have contact with them by participating alongside them in any of these art forms.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are no known followers of Christ in this Brahman community.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray that the Karhade Brahmans will learn that Jesus is the Light of the World, who can bless them far more than any goddess. Pray they will seek and find Him.
