If hatred increases, it will not benefit anyone. To pursue the ideal of “all are equal” is like running after the mirage to slake one’s thirst. It will only breed discontent. The rulers must now assemble and consult the representatives of the people, namely, the pundits and experienced elders and discuss the value of this ancient system of social organisation. Instead, if they just decide on the basis of external forms and features that there is some poison in this and run into panic, that will only reveal their ignorance. The rulers as well as the pundits both have the happiness of the people at heart. Why this Varna system originated and with what end in view, had led to comments because it was not practised on the continued counsels of the wise.
Take one small example: some nations have manufactured bombs that can wipe out lakhs (hundred thousand) of people at one burst. Though they know this is bad, the rulers are themselves encouraging it. If they are used as the whim takes them, ruin will fall on all. When chaos threatens, they are to be used only for self-defence. The purpose is not the destruction of the world but the protection of the values of one’s own country and culture. So also, the Varna system is to be treated as strong armament to protect the country and culture. The rules and regulations, the restrictions and recommendations are all to defend the people from ruin. They are disciplines which have to be honoured in the way they are laid down and followed strictly and correctly. To deal with them as the whim dictates, without regard to the directing bunds, the limits and the boundaries, is to invite anarchy.
The Varna asrama is the most confused thing otday,especially in india mainly due to the impact of foreign
influences which India had to undergo .This dharma was not based on Janma (birth alone)
Anybody born in any stage is eligible for spiritual elevation.Thanks to Swami the original ideas have come
back again to make all people realise this truth through self analysis without the thought of superiority of caste consciousness.
