Bhoi Kharot in Nepal

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
Traditionally the Kharot Bhoi were agricultural laborers. Those in Nepal are considered a nomadic tribe that migrated from India.

Where are they located?
Kharot Bhoi people are all over India, especially in the states of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal. A smaller number live in Nepal.

What are their lives like?
The Kharot Bhoi community in Nepal is mainly a landowning one, but a few are landless. A Brahmin priest officiates at weddings. At the wedding, the bride and groom walk around a fire seven times.

What are their beliefs?
Every Bhoi home in Nepal has an altar to Manasamata, a Hindu god. Beside this, there are images of Khandoba and a few other gods and goddesses. Every family has a number of deities. They are 100 percent Hindu.

What are their needs?
Vocational Christians may have opportunities to live among the Kharot Bhoi people in Nepal, creating opportunities to be in daily contact with them to earn respect, and confidence, and hopefully the privilege to speak God's truth in their midst.

Audio, visual, New Testament, and Bible portions are available in their Bhojpuri language.

Though Kharot Bhoi have a high standing within their culture, they are poor, needy, and without hope in this world without their Savior and sin-bearer.

Prayer Points
* There may be no followers of Jesus among the Hindu Kharot Bhoi community at present; pray for the Holy Spirit to soon change this.
* Pray that the Kharot Bhoi community will care for their families above their deities.
* Pray they will make schooling a priority for their children, so the children will be equipped to live in modern times.
