Who are the #Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vysyas & Shudras?

In #Hinduism, neither a caste structure nor any divisions of labour are established for a certain vocation of life with watertight compartments.
The extraordinarily divine compere is devoid of any divisions of labour, social communalisms, or other unimportant issues.
The 4 "so-called" classes r castes represent the different stages of human growth (yogam).
It is untrue to say that #Jatis must pursue a certain line of work in the outside world. All of this discourse is the pitiful outcome of Toto's ignorance of the genuine meaning of our texts
Due to the "Inexcusable" ignorance of this reality, #Varna and #Jati are incorrectly interpreted as caste in modern society.

In India, there was never a #caste system. Unfortunately, it is the norm to spread incorrect notions and inaccurate information
The observed worldly occupations simply speak about the manifestations of natural attributes and are never required by conventional Hindu Law.

See the classification of the misinterpreted classes
below as per the Purusha Sooktha mantra.
Brahmin (or Brahman) (Head)
The "Brahmin" is at the top (Head). The primary organs of perception, including sight, hearing, taste, touch, smell, and thought, are found in the head above the neck. The head perceives, contemplates, chooses, and directs.
Kshatriyas (Body)
As commanded by the head, they defend, attack, and carry out the work.

Vysya (Stomach)
The Vysya is the stomach. With the food it receives, it digests, dispatches, assimilates, stores, and develops.
The limbs (legs) bear the body's weight and move the user wherever he or she chooses to go.
The many components of the body operate nonstop for the welfare of the whole person. The body as a whole feels sick if one part isn't working properly. Each has a unique role and place in society.
The body's many components devote their entire lives to ensuring its health. The entire body feels sick if one component isn't working properly. Each holds a unique position of significance.
—Purusha Sooktha, Rig Veda
The confusion resulted from the literal interpretation of the shlokas and Vedas by some of our Veda pundits (or faux pundits) and intellectuals. Therefore, neither #Class, #Caste, nor #Jati exist in the #Hindu/Vedic Dharmic cosmos.
ॐ सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः सर्वे सन्तु निरामयाः ।
सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु मा कश्चिद्दुःखभाग्भवेत् ।

ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

ॐ नमो भगवते वासुदेवाय🙏

Why is #Kashi so significant to Hindus? - Part 4 #Thread

""Microcosm & Macrocosm"

Cosmogram is a magico-spatial design that brings macro, meso, and microcosms together in a unified order. The focal point represents the earth's life-breath, and thus assists to explain and experience the fundamental interaction between Man and Cosmos.
The number 108, which is a numerical cosmogram in and of itself, has a cosmogonic meaning relating to constellations (lunar asterism, 27) and the human condition's rhythm or cardinality (8). Thus, cardinality, centrality, and circulation are defined.

Why is #Kashi so significant to Hindus? Part-3 #Thread

"A Basic Description of the #Kashi Tirtha Yatra"

Even after performing crores of Yajnas one cannot acquire the opulence which one can get at every step while walking in the lanes of Kashi. (Kashi Khanda)
Tirtha "तीर्थ" is a Sanskrit word that means "crossing place, ford", and refers to any place, text or person that is scared. It particularly refers to pilgrimage sites and scared places.
Tirtha originally referred to a fordable river, which was chosen solely for its utility.
Hindus build "Axis Mundi," temporary or permanent representations of a substantial part or the entire cosmos, to maintain a harmonious relationship throughout the universe.

A letter written by professional doctor to PM Modi.
Why do Indians resist paying taxes? - #Thread

Interesting thoughts on why Indian resist paying taxes, in an open letter to the Prime Minister.
Dear Modi ji,

This is what we honest citizens feel about our Governments - Central and State...

On behalf of professionals & businessmen, I am* sending you some facts ..

Please try to understand.

We are not doing Tax '"Chori"'... this is tax saving (a bit of evading too).
This is to ensure security of our family, kids and their future for any adversity.

1. We bought Generators/Inverter in our houses, because Govt. failed to provide constant electricity.

2. We installed submersible pumps, because Govt. failed to provide water.

Wives & Pension: #Thread
How is my tax money being spent❓
Courtesy: #Congress

From a CA:
You might be astonished to discover what a government pension officer informed me when I asked how you offer pension to four wives of a retired Muslim government official if he die...? Image
His response...!!
We observe Nomination. If he has established a ratio, then we pay in that ratio among 4 wives...!!

If he does not choose a ratio, the family pension is distributed equally among 4 WIVES. This equates to each receiving 25% of the entire Family Pension...!
If the 1st wife dies, 33.3% of the remaining 3...!!
If the 2nd wife dies, 50% goes to each...!!
If the 3rd wife dies, everything goes to the 4th...!!

Contribution of #Mysore Empire - #Thread.

Brithishers knew about #KGF (Kolar Gold Field). In the year 1802, John Warner learned about the presence of gold and demarked the area, allowing him to export a small amount of gold.
From 1881 through 1946, John Taylor & Company exported 10,000 kg of gold to the United Kingdom each year. That's almost 6,50,000 kg of gold from #Mysore State, which is now #Karnataka. Even at that time, #Karnataka was the largest tax-paying state.
Britishers robbed the whole wealth of Mysore State during the 4th Anglo Mysore War in 1799. Due to a lack of money, work on the Mysore Palace was halted for four years. Even Dussehra was not celebrated between 1800 and 1804.

Why is #Kashi so significant to Hindus? Part-2 #Thread

"Significance of Tirtha Yatra"

Kashi is referenced in the Puranas and Mahatmya Granthas as a Tirtha Khestra.

मरणं मंगलं यत्र विभूतिश्च विभूषणम्।
कौपीनं यत्र कौशेयं सा काशी केन मीयते।।

Pilgrimage sites of 🇮🇳
Although pilgrimages are not mentioned directly in Vedic literature (about 2000-500 B.C.), they were regarded an important aspect of spiritual fulfilment
(Aitareya Brahmana)
In Vedic literature, the Sanskrit term yatra meant "travel" rather than "pilgrimage," but yatra was accepted as meaning "pilgrimage" in Puranic literature (500 B.C. - A.D. 700).
