About the Book
In this work the author deals with the structure of Indian Society with the orthodox doctrines of Hinduism and the heterodox doctrines of Buddhism, with the changes wrought by popular religiosity and their influence on the secular ethic of Indian society. The Indian Social system was influenced by the concept of Varna. Varna is not caste and caste is not Varna. This is a critical difference not understood by many. It directly linked religious belief and the segregation of society into status groups. The Verna system: The Brahmins (Priests); The Kshatriyas (Warriors); The Vaishyas (Merchant); The Shudras (Laborers and the Untouchables.
