Introduction / History
The Komati are a Caste who live in South and Central India. Many of them live in Andhra Pradesh with others living in several other Indian states. The meaning of the word Komati may mean clever businessman or keeper of cows.

They are a trading company involved in business, banking and lending money. They are mainly Hindus but the Jaina Komati follow Jainism. There are several languages spoken by them including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

The Komati are vegetarians. They follow Ahimsa which means not to hurt or injure but to help.

Arya Vaisya are a a sub group of the Komati and the name means respectable.

Prayer Points
* Pray that as they like to help and not injure they are attracted to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to Salvation too.
* Pray that Indian Christians lead them to Jesus Christ.
