It is not discrimination to say the legs should walk and the stomach should digest the food and the arms should protect the body and the head should direct. This is the game of politicians, who plays well in divide and rule. A person who believes in faith alone or eternal security or that one is saintly even though one commits abominable actions, is a heretic, because he rejects a truth he knows to be true from the natural law, that God is a rewarder and a punisher of our actions, and that faith alone or external practices does not justify a man only, but our deeds and intentions also. For his part, Prabhupada sought to attack caste-based discrimination at its root. It must be heard by those who are consternated by the oppression and exploitation of the masses by kings, oligarchies, capitalistism-gone-wild, and who then propose that all men are born equal, and that social statification is an anomaly.
So these differences have to be acknowledged and people have to be engaged in society according to their quality and work. Vivekcudamani 4 Vedism and much later even Vedanta thought that women cannot attain moksha. And when those conditions are not met, then that lack of real love is revealed. We naturally accept that the different parts of the body constitute a single person even though their functions vary. But, do you have any comments regarding this lowest class of people…the outcasts…those who are not even included in the Varnashram system? As to become a doctor or a nurse you have to attend the university and get the degree and then work in the medical profession to become a brahmana or a ksatriya requires training and that training is practically not available today.
He can instruct you in such a way that if you follow his instructions you can get the lotus feet of Krishna. Again Non Brahmins, who are the Vishnu Followers, who are fondly known as Alwars in India, have temples in their Birth place, and where they merged. Thank you ji You are not going to get the lotus feet of Krishna by living a normal life. And the sayings are although bitter are no doubt the truth. It was no his non-violence that forced the British to leave India. No one else is to be taxed and that tax goes to the king, for distribution for public welfare in so many ways. First there is Hearing about Krishna in a devotional attitude.
Thanking You Sudra has no power to do anything himself. So if he really possesses the qualities of a brahmana and is working as a brahmana then and only then he can be accepted as a brahmana. Similarly no one can claim to be a brahmana if he has not been trained as a brahmana. Then low origins are interpreted as animals, birds or outcastes only. Its India who is keeping it going, not Pakistan.
So you are something like Arjuna in this respect. We are eternal souls, passing from body to body. And when the pure devotee becomes pleased with us, by degree, he will enlighten us with his divine grace. Addicted to all sorts of sinful activities and not even up to the platform of sudras. In this condition I ask you to please tell me what is best for me. Only after careful analysis of his personality was his caste determined. God is in our own self.
I see this book as more of self-help than religious; the beauty of it lies in practicing the preachings I suppose. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, a highly respected Vaishnava scholar and monk, who at the age of 70 journeyed from India to New York City to bring the bhakti tradition, or Krishna Consciousness, to the west. At the start of the Great War, Arjuna loses heart when confronted with numerous relatives and friends, and refuses to fight. Gandhi was doing this non-violence for more than thirty years and the British did not leave. Here are the verses — अधर्माभिभवात्कृष्ण प्रदुष्यन्ति कुलस्त्रियः। स्त्रीषु दुष्टासु वार्ष्णेय जायते वर्णसङ्करः।।1.
The shastras instruct us, after all is said and done, that this kind of love comes through grace. But actually it is possible for us to follow all of these things, we simply need to practice constantly and become detached as Krishna advises Arjuna. There is some benefit being born in a real brahmana family of course. If we are very successful in performing our social responsibilities but we do not become Krishna conscious then our life is wasted… Chant Hare Krishna and be happy! Low birth according to Lord Krishna is a birth not interested in God inherently. It includes the qualities of a brahmana. You cannot reach God other than through faith in the Vedas! A lawyer has certain qualities and qualifications.
This is as far as i have gotten in reading it. Also, If somebody is a Man in this birth, for him to look down upon women birth as inferior is not sane because, if that man fails to utilise his birth for attaining the supreme, he may have to take another birth and he could be a woman or an animal!! Madhudvisa dasa Hare Krishna, Radhey Radhey Prabhu In this mail you have spoke a truth about Indian caste system. Can you explain to me where a nurse fits into the more traditional Indian caste system. So Vaisnava transcends the mode of goodness and comes to the suddha-sattva platform. Realy you are master , you are director ,you are full of love , thousands of Punya definitely goes in the name of you.
