  • 3. THE CASTE SYSTEM The following selection comes from the Code of Manu, a Hindu book of sacred law written sometime during the first and second centuries BC. For the sake of the preservation of this entire creation, Perusha, the exceedingly resplendent one, assigned separate duties to the classes which had spring from his mouth, arms, thighs and feet. Teaching, studying, performing sacrificial rites, so too making others perform sacrificial rites, and giving away gifts- these he assigned to the brahmins. Protection of the people, giving away of wealth, performance of sacrificial rites, study, and nonattachment to sensual pleasures- these are, in short, the duties of a kshatriya. Tending of cattle, giving away of wealth, performance of sacrificial rites, study, trade, and commerce...and agriculture- these are the occupations of the vaishya. The Lord has prescribed only one occupation...for a shudra; namely, service without malice of...these other three classes.Thursday, January 10, 13
