                    References are made by scholars to varnasramadharma as the forerunner of  the caste system. The Mahatma did not enter into controversies to search for the

origins of the. Caste system. He admitted that he did not know and did not feel the

Necessity to know its origins. But he was certain that the modern caste system

and the ancient varnasramadharma  have nothing in common. One is the

Antithesis of the other. so he said that his social system  had nothing to do with

Caste. He believed lhat varnasramadharma, is the law of life'and not an unnatural system like caste. He conceived of a better social order characterized by

Varnasrama,  and preached for its revival.

                          By varnasrama  Gandhi understood  the four old-division  of society based on occupations.  As such, rhe varnas'mark four universal occupations-imparting  knowledge,  defending  the defenseress,  carrying on agricurture  and commerce and performing  service through physical labour. These occupations are common to mankind, he said, and their recognition  and use as the law of life in regulating economic relations by the ancient Hindus was a noble innovation. lts

application ensured hereditary skill, established defined spheres of action, avoided unworthy competitions, and prevented one from pressing upon one's neighbours.  lt admitted  no status distinctions, no restrictions of intermarriage and inter-dining and guaranteed each the fruits of his labour.

                                  This is 'law of man's being' and Gandhi believed that the reversion of the society lo lhe Varnas,'arna  stage would immensely benefit

mankind. He even prescribed it to the Christians and the  Muslims. The method he suggested for this transformation  was the removal of status inequality from among the castes anddissociation of untouchability with the system. These, he considered, were not essential attributes but excrescences. Once they are removed the society would automatically revert to Varnasramadharma  in its pristine purity. Gandhi made it clear

that he advocated in favour of a society where there would be four broad universal functional groups, all equal in social status and following pafticular occupations
