The Beda Jangam were traditionally a religious mendicant and priestly class. They live in the states of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, and Tamil Nadu.
Their occupations are religious gurus, agriculture, petty business, and government and private service.
They are followers of the Veerashaiva sect, so they primarily worship the Hindu god Shiva, but they also believe in Shakthi and Panchacharyas. They wear Istalingas on their bodies, representation of Shiva and used as a symbol for worship in temples.
Their greatest need is for sufficient food, education and good employment.
Pray for a spiritual hunger that will give the Beda Jangam people a willingness to accept the eternal blessings of Jesus Christ. Pray for a disciple making movement that will bless the Beda Jangam people this decade. Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers to the Beda Jangam people.
