Introduction / History
The Gaur Brahman of India are Hindus. In Himachal Pradesh they speak Pahari and Hindi and read and write in Tankri and Devanagari. They are not vegetarians and they drink alcohol and smoke tobacco. Divorce is allowed for unfaithfulness and for lack of suitability. Marrying again is allowed. On the death of the father, the sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. The dead are cremated and babies are buried. They work in agriculture and have community councils to settle disputes and help as do other Gaur Brahman.

In Haryana, the Gaur Brahman speak Hindi with others not in their group and read and write in Devanagari. They are vegetarians and they eat rice. Some are priests, some are self-employed while others work in agriculture. Most of them are not landowners. They use modern medicines.

In Bihar the Gaur Brahman speak Maithili and Hindi. They make money from music programs and some of them work in government service.

In Delhi it is similar for the Gaur Brahman to the other places where they live.

Prayer Points
Pray that pride will not get in the way of the higher class Brahman receiving Jesus Christ.
Pray that the leaders of the Gaur Brahman community councils will come to Jesus Christ and lead others of them to salvation too.

Singh, K. S., ed. "India's Communities A-Z", Oxford University Press, USA 1999
