Deshastha Brahmins are a Hindu Brahmin subcaste mainly from the Indian state of Maharashtra and northern area of the state of Karnataka . The word Deshastha derives from the Sanskrit deśa (inland, country) and stha (resident), literally translating to "residents of the country". The valleys of the Krishna and the Godavari rivers, and a part of Deccan plateau adjacent to the Sahyadri hills, are collectively termed the Desha – the original home of the Deshastha Brahmins.

Over the millennia, the community produced the eighth century Sanskrit scholar Bhavabhuti , the thirteenth century Varkari saint and philosopher Dnyaneshwar , his brother and guru Saint Nivruttinath , his sister Saint Muktabai , his brother Saint Sopan . It also produced other saints like Saint Samarth Ramdas and Saint Eknath . [1]

The Hindu caste system [note 1] is first mentioned in the ancient Hindu scriptures like the Vedas and the Upanishads . [note 2] Various sub-classifications of the caste system exist, many based on the geographical origin of the caste. [note 3] [note 4]
