Introduction / History

Bisen or Vishen are a Rajput clan found in North India, mainly in the state of Uttar Pradesh. They are also found in the states of Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Bihar. They are a powerful and an ancient Rajput clan named after Raja Birsen (hence Bisen) of the Suket Kingdom and have several kingdoms in the northern plains of India.


What Are Their Lives Like?

As Rajputs, they have high status in Hindu India, but they don't always have wealth. Those that are landowners do, but those in the military do not. Some are shop owners.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Bisen Rajputs practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. Hinduism is a catch-all phrase for the local religions of South Asia, so it is very diverse. At the popular level, Hindus worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. 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 other Hindus who are much more philosophical, especially among the Brahmins. Almost all Hindus participate in yearly celebrations like 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 Bisen Rajput people need to submit to Jesus Christ so they can experience the abundant life He offers them in John 10:10.
