Bhoi Ghogra in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Ghogra Bhoi community in India is mainly a landowning one, but a few are landless. A Brahmin priest officiates at their weddings. At the wedding, the bride and groom walk around the fire seven times. Since some of them work in temples, they have higher status than most agricultural communities in India.

Where are they located?
The Ghogra Bhoi are scattered in various parts of eastern India. Some from India's Assam state have migrated further north to Nepal where there is a small number of them.

What are their lives like?
Gogra Bhoi people are almost always rural. They are farmers who depend on the elements of the weather and having good soil in order to produce the crops they need. Some of their crops they eat, while they sell part of their harvests to buy other things.

What are their beliefs?
Every Ghogra Bhoi house 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.

What are their needs?
Ghogra Bhoi people need fresh running water and electricity in their home. Most people in rural India consider these things to be luxuries.

Prayer Points
Pray for spiritual discernment for these people who depend on fallen spirits to provide for their needs.
Pray that Indian believers will go as His ambassadors, and take Christ to them in a sensitive, culturally-appropriate way.
Pray that soon the Ghogra Bhoi people will throw out their idols and put all their trust in Jesus Christ.
Pray for a Disciple-Making movement among them in both India and Nepal.
