Introduction / History

The Yadava are Hindus and have community councils to look after them.

In Andhra Pradesh the Yadava speak, read and write in Telugu. They are not vegetarians and eat rice. They have some cousin marriages. Divorce is allowed. They work in animal husbandry and cultivation.

In Pondicherry they raise cattle and are in agriculture. Boys are educated.

In Tamil Nadu, on the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son being in charge of the home. They have birth and marriage rituals and the dead are cremated.

In Kerala they speak Telugu and Malayalam and read and write in Malayalam. They bury the dead. Some of them own land.


Prayer Points

* Pray that Indian Christians will lead the Yadava to salvation.
* Pray that the community council leaders will come to Jesus Christ and lead others of the Yadava to Him too.
