Telugu Brahmins

Telugu Brahmins are members of the Indian Brahmin caste whose native language is Telugu. Most of them hail from the region of Andhra Pradesh, located in South India. Telugu Brahmins are known for their highest accomplishments in religious, social, economic, political, cultural and scientific endeavors.

Groups

Most of the Brahmins in Andhra Pradesh belong to the Smarta Brahmin group, i.e., the followers of smritis and followers of Adi Sankaracharya. The Smarta Brahmins follow Apastamba Smriti or Apastamba Sutra not the Manusmriti. Apastamba was one of the earliest lawmakers of south India who lived on the banks of the River Godavari. Boudhayana, Parasara, Yajnvalkya sutras and other laws were also important in the courts of Srikrishnadevaraya. Smartha Brahmins are worshippers of Lord Shiva and various other Acharyas who have contributed to the spread of the faith. The Smaarta Brahmins in Andhra Pradesh can be grouped into two major divisions; The Vaidiki or the learner of Vedas and Niyogi those appointed to official positions by Kings. Today, one can still find Telugu Brahmins practitioning the age old tradition of learning and teaching Vedas in most parts of Andhra Pradesh. There are many sub-sects of brahmins, some of them are Dravidlu, Aru Vela Niyogulu, Vaidiki Velandalu, Telaganilu and others. Other important groups that eventually got absorbed into Telugu Brahmins from neighboring states of Tamilnadu and Karnataka include followers of Sri Vaishnavism who follow Vishishtadvaita espoused by the saint Ramanujacharya, and Madhwas who follow Dvaita espoused by the saint Madhwacharya.(Reference: Shreeram Balijepalli's articles online)
