Kannada Brahmin in India

Kannada Brahmin in India

Kannada Brahmins are high achievers and proud of their accomplishments. Most of them are from Karnataka, the state where Kannada is the traditional language. Their families would much prefer that they have high paying work though some still maintain their traditional role as Hindu priests. Though they are diverse in their devotion, a large number worship Shiva, Vishnu, Ganesh, and Lakshmi -- a popular goddess. Those who are priests spend their time practicing yoga, chanting, and making offerings to the gods.

Ministry Obstacles

They like the prestige that comes with their title and have no interest in losing it by becoming followers of Jesus and being viewed as outsiders and rebels. At this point in time, few have attempted to bring Christ inside Brahmin culture, expecting them to remain in their communities.

Outreach Ideas

Kannada Brahmins often study abroad. They are in contact with Christian believers who could be instrumental in leading them to the Lord.

Scripture Focus

"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you."  Isaiah 26:3

Scripture Prayer

Pray for many from this people group to find perfect peace in trusting the Lord Almighty.

Prayer Focus

Pray that many Kannada Brahmins would not fear losing their prominent positions for the sake of Christ. Pray that becoming a believer would allow them through their positions to begin a Christ-ward movement among other Kannada speakers.
