Introduction / History

The Amant people are also known as the Amanats. They are farmers, though some are artists, day laborers or carpenters. They speak Oriya, which is the language of Orissa, their home state. Like many Hindu communities, the Amant people place themselves higher in the caste system than others would. They consider themselves to be Sudras, a group that is the fourth and lowest of caste clusters. Others would consider them to be dalits, the group that is outside the caste system.

Like many Hindu groups, the Amants' lives are crippled by astrology, which they thinks determines their destiny. Astrologers help them determine auspicious dates for important events like weddings. They worship the false gods Thakurani and Mahadev.

Pray that they will soon realize that these are demons that want to destroy their lives. Pray that they will turn to Christ, who came to give them life, and life to the full.
