The Gujarati Brahmins are the highest order of their varna or caste system. Brahmins are considered the purest caste and are usually very well educated. Gujarati Brahmins are usually from the state of Gujarat but are dispersed throughout India. Brahmins usually are pressured to achieve much success and are encouraged to enter the Science and Technology fields. They are considered extremely hard to reach in South Asia due to their positions of influence. Brahmins usually do not begin to speak or seek answers about the afterlife until later in life. They do not marry outside of their caste and lead lives devoted to the gods, all creatures, human and study of their sacred scriptures. Gujarati Brahmins are usually followers of Hinduism but there are some that are Muslim, Jains or Buddhists.
