Ref : -  CASTE PROBLEM IN INDIA

All Members,

Respected family members of this great holy Nation.


"I have a message for the world, which I will deliver without fear and care for the future. To the reformers I will point out that I am a greater reformer than any one of them. They want to reform only little bits. I want root-and-branch reform."

- Swami Vivekananda

Part-5.2.

SOLUTION OF THE CASTE PROBLEM-2

A.

Therefore, it is no use fighting among the castes.

What good will it do?

It will divide us all the more, weaken us all the more, degrade us all the more.

The solution is not by bringing down the higher, but by raising the lower up to the level of the higher.

And that is the line of work that is found in all our books, in spite of what you may hear from some people whose knowledge of their own Scriptures and whose capacity to understand the mighty plans of the ancients are only zero.

What is the plan?

The ideal at the one end is the Brahmana and the ideal at the other end is the chandala, and the whole work is to raise the chandala up to the Brahmana.

Slowly and slowly you will find more and more privileges granted to them.

B.

I regret that in modern times there should be so much discussion between the castes.

This must stop.

It is useless on both sides, especially on the side of the higher caste, the Brahmana, the day for these privileges and exclusive claims is gone.

The duty of every aristocracy is to dig its own grave, and the sooner it does so, the better.

The more he delays, the more it will fester and the worse death it will die.

It is the duty of the Brahmana, therefore, to work for the salvation of the rest of mankind, in India.

If he does that and so long as he does that, he is a Brahmana.

C

Any one who claims to be a Brahmana, then, should prove his pretensions, first by manifesting that spirituality, and next by raising others to the same status.

We earnestly entreat the Brahmanas not to forget the ideal of India - the production of a universe of Brahmanas, pure as purity, good as God Himself : this was at the beginning, says the Mahabharata and so will it be in the end.

D.

It seems that most of the Brahmanas are only nursing a false pride of birth; and any schemer, native or foreign, who can pander to this vanity and inherent laziness, by fulsome sophistry, appears to satisfy more.

E.

Beware Brahmanas, this is the sign of death!

Arise and show your manhood, your Brahmana-hood, by raising the non-Brahmanas around you -

not in the spirit of a master -

not with the rotten canker of egoism crawling with superstitions and charlatanry of East and West -

but in the spirit of a servant.

Swami Vivekananda
