Welcome to Chitragupt Samaj, UK
CHITRAGUPT SAMAJ (UK) is an organisation founded to maintain and promote the traditions of 'Kayasthas' in U.K.
According to Hindu mythology, 'Kayastha' was the name given by Brahma, the creator of this Universe to a figure who was born out of His body (Kaya). Brahma gave the name of 'Chitragupta' to this individual and his progeny on this earth are known as 'Kayasthas'. Brahma allocated Chitragupta the duties of keeping an account of everybodys good and bad deeds on this earth, in the offices of Dharma Raj, situated in Yampuri. These were obviously taken into account after the death of an individual for allocating his or her next life or granting 'Mokasha' i.e. Liberation from the cycle of rebirth and death.
Thus traditionally the 'Kayasthas' have been pursuing careers related to accounting, literary activities and other academic professions.
