WHO CONFUSED THE PEOPLE FOR VESTED INTERESTS? WAS IT ACHIEVED? WERE THEY WELL OFF? WHO IS GAINING AND WHO IS LOSING? I LIKED IT AND WANTS TO EXPOSE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VARNASRAMAM AND CASTE. MAY GOOD THINGS PREVAIL.
VARNASRAMA CONCEPT OG GANDHI
QUOTED FROM AND NEHRU OR EVR MAY NOT BE CONSIDERED GREATER THAN MAHATMA GANDHI;(MINE)
Mahatma Gandhi National Institute of Research and Social
Action (MGNIRSA) is an lnstitution established by Dr' D'
Swaminadhan Research Foundation (DSRF) registered as
Trust and a Society covering all India Jurisdiction
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
it was written by sarvapalli radhakrishnan too in the book marked below.(MINE)
