In our previous session, you came to know the social impact of Varnasram in eradicating Unemployment, which is the biggest problem of Kali Yuga. However, this is just the outlined feature of Varnasram. The real essence of it is hidden secretly within it. In this season, we will pull out that secret message of Varnasram, for which the social gem has been abolished in Kali Yuga and for which, Varnasram is declared to be the divine method of social organizing.

Varnasram system won’t block the road for any of the four castes to remain dynamic towards another caste. We discussed the same in our previous edition. But, at the same time reserves access to four level of spiritualism at four castes, elaborating four stages of spiritual progress towards salvation. The Journey starts with Sudra or Karma Yoga. A sudra finds it difficult to detach their mind from the fruits of work and that is their challenge. He takes several bodies as sudra to detach his mind from the fruits of work and when they could do the same, they find the body of a Vaishya. Being a Vaisya, the person goes through Upanayan Sanskar and also goes to Guru Villa. He detaches mind from fruits of work but could not settle his mind on the knowledge of truth.

This struggle carries on through different bodies and ends when ultimately he finds a deep attachment towards knowledge of truth. When this stage comes, he finds the chance to be a Kshatriya. Being a Kshatriya, he gets through detailed knowledge of truth, but there he finds provocations of fame, money, lust and power. His target remains to detach the mind from all these and fix his mind on truth, use his power for the betterment of society and widening the path of salvation towards salvation. When he succeeds in that, he becomes a king. Being a king, he runs towards real and high level philosophy of salvation but again could not fix his mind in several bodies.

When he ultimately succeeds in doing so, he finds the body of a Brahmana and then his actualized path towards salvation starts. He adopts Bhakti, practices devotion, researches on truth and develops different paths for the society towards salvation by means of culture, education and handling of economy and power. Finally, he attains Moksh or Salvation.

This is the way, Varnasram paves the path for the mind towards salvation. Pollution and corruption reaches high, when too many minds remain at the stage of Vaishyas, who won’t feel the urge towards knowledge of truth; corruption also reaches high when too many Kshatriyas remain with least urge for salvation and remaining dipped into power, lust, money and fame; corruption also exceeds while too many Brahmanas remain on earth who feels that the social power of Brahmana is everything. During that time, Lord incarnates and settles the thing, so that the wide path of Varnasram remains glorified, but at no condition abolishes Varnasram.

Kali Yuga, under the influence of Kali Demon and his angels of least understanding about truth, abolished the Varnasram practice and hence obstructed the path of salvation entirely for the society. For that, in Kali Yuga, there is no perfection of birth for any mind. A real Brahmana is born in the family of a sudra and for social structure remains embedded in the activities of Sudra, where he works at other’s office for the owner. A real Kshatriya, who must have been born to rule and pave the path of salvation in society is born in the family of a Vaishya and remains dipped in the family business for entire life. On the other hand, a sudra takes birth in a royal family and becomes a King, who has absolute no urge to pave the path of salvation or righteousness (Dharma). Ultimately, an entire unrighteous (Adharma) is called for in the society, polluting the entire society from its root.

The last few sessions narrated about Varnasram, which is the deadline of Kali Yuga. Hence there is no need of any debate regarding end date of Kali Yuga. Whenever it will be found that Varnasram is tried to be re-established in society, that very thing is the indication that Kali Yuga is coming to the last episode of it. However, few things here came up and one among them is Righteousness or Dharma. What exactly is dharma? Understanding Dharma in real sense seemed to be impossible to even the Highly intellectual Bhishma. Standing at the end moment of Kali Yuga, it seems impossible to understand Dharma in real sense. In our next few episodes, we will find the real meaning of Dharma and clear all doubts and confusions. In fact, this is the biggest burden in the base level Gyan Yoga. So, be attentive to understand the reality.
