Kagate in Nepal

Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
Kagate is a Tibetan language. This people group is defined by their language.

Where are they located?
Kagate is spoken by a small number of people in Nepal and northeastern India, specifically the state of Sikkim.

What are their lives like?
We know almost nothing about their lives, but most likely they live much like the other rural peoples in Nepal. They are very small in number, both in Nepal and Sikkim.

What are their beliefs?
The Kagate people practice Buddhism, the major world religion based on the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama or the Buddha, who lived in the 6th and 5th century BC in ancient India. The Buddha taught the Four Noble Truths by which one can gain spiritual knowledge and escape the endless cycles of reincarnation. Theravada, one of the two major branches of Buddhism, declares that by following the Noble Eightfold Path of right intentions and right actions that a Buddhist can achieve nirvana or a state of freedom and salvation. Mahayana Buddhism, the other main branch of Buddhism, asserts that by following the six perfections that a Buddhist can move along the path to Enlightenment. Tibetan Buddhism falls within the Mahayana school.

To most Buddhists, however, these things have far less meaning than their traditional beliefs, which are usually animistic. In animism, evil spirits must be appeased through prayers, sacrifices and rituals. Buddhism allows people to mix Buddhist teachings with traditional religion.
Two of the important Buddhist yearly holidays are Vesak, the Buddha's birthday celebrated in May or June and Bodhi Day, the holiday which commemorates the day that the historical Buddha experienced enlightenment under a Bodhi tree.

What are their needs?
The Kagate people need to understand that Jesus Christ alone offers them life to the full. They need the Savior, the only one who can save them from sin and give them eternal life.

Prayer Points
* Pray for the Holy Spirit to move among Kagate family and community leaders to seek His face and enjoy His blessings.
* Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers who will be compelled to nurture a disciple making movement among the Kagate people.
* Pray that soon the Kagate people will have faith that is more precious and durable than gold.
