Brahmin Kanaujia in India

The Kanaujia or Kanyakubja Brahmins receive their name from Kanauj, an ancient city of northern India. The Brahmins are the highest of the four main castes of Hinduism. The Brahmins are the priests, teachers and keepers of the sacred traditions of Hinduism. The Kanaujia descend from royalty and large landowners of the colonial period. Today the Kanaujia Brahmins work at the highest level of Indian society in medicine, government, law, science, and business.

Ministry Obstacles
Kanaujia Brahmins are proud of their Hindu heritage and high position in society. Pride can prevent people from confessing their need for a savior.

Outreach Ideas
Kanaujia students studying in the West will be more open to the gospel than those in their homeland. Hindu background believers can explain to the Kanaujia the blessings of knowing Christ.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are no known believers among the Kanaujia Brahmins. Ask God to bring many into his kingdom soon.

Pray for the entire people group
* Pray for the Kanaujia Brahmins to prosper economically and spiritually. * Pray that the Lord would humble the Kanaujia Brahmins and they would see themselves as sinners in need of the Savior. * Pray the Kanaujia would hear a clear presentation of the gospel, believe it and become teachers of the Bible and disciplers of the spiritually hungry.

Scripture Focus
