There’s a lot of confusion about the caste system today as presented in the Gita.
My Guru’s purports, found in Chapter 18 verse 7, are very clear.
- Traditionally prescribed duty is fixed by caste of birth.
- Firstly, caste by birth has no validity today. Also changed times require changed interpretation.
- Earlier, prescribed duty for women was cooking and household work.
- Today both man and woman work and earn.
Isn’t this super clear? We are in a merit based society. We’ve to work and earn our successes.
