Introduction / History

Traditionally the Javeri people were jewelers.


Where Are they Located?

The Hindu Javeri people live in the western states of Maharashtra and Karnataka.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Today these Hindus are associated with the wealthy Bania castes. Some are still jewelers, but others are businessmen, judges, actors, poets, writers, etc. They tend to hold positions that bring them prestige.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Javeri people practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. They worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. Hindus believe that by performing rituals and good works that they will attain moksha or freedom from the endless cycle of birth, death and rebirth. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers, and incense to their gods in hopes of gaining protection and benefits. They do not have a personal or familial relationship with their gods like Christians or Jews. There are many forms of Hinduism, each with its own deities and beliefs.

The main yearly holidays of the Javeri people are Holi, the festival of colors and the start of spring / Diwali, the festival of lights / Navratri, the celebration of autumn / and Rama Navami, Rama’s birthday.


What Are Their Needs?

The Javeri people need to accept the essential help from the Lord that all peoples, tribes and nations also need.
