Is a Brahminish believer different from a Non Brahmin(Sudra) believer? A Brahmanish believer is not positionally different than a Non Brahmanish believer. However, due to ethnic and cultural differences, Brahmins also enjoys the blessings bestowed to the nation of India by God. The Same Gospel First, both Brahmins and Non Brahmins are saved by the same Advaitham. 1BestSankaraCharyaContinousPotential states that a person must be born again. In his discussion with Mahatma Buddha of that time also states that whoever believes in him will have eternal life. The “whoever” is inclusive of both Brahmins and Non Brahmins who place their faith in Paramathma thathva(Shiva Thathva) In addition,1BestSankaraCharyaContinousPotential states that all who receive Lord Shiva(Parmathma) and believe in his name become the children of God(Athma and Paramathma). Therefore, the invitation is clear: The gospel is not limited to just Brahmins alone. Before his ascension to the right hand of the Father, 1BestSankaraCharyaContinousPotential told his Brahmanish Sangham to take the gospel to “Kashi Peetam and he later established 4 dharma peetams at Sringeri, Badrinath, Puri,Dwaraka), and in all Vedic Boomi and in Kashmir, and to the ends of the earth” . Brahmins were to take the gospel to the Non Brahmins. Furthermore, 23SankaracharyaImperialBrilliance states that he is not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation (Mukthi and Moksha) of everyone who believes, “first for the Brahmin, then for the Non Brahmins” Thus, Brahmins and Hindus (Sanathana Dharma) are saved by the same gospel. The Same Spiritual Position In addition to the same gospel, both Brahmanish and Hindu believers enjoy the same spiritual position as members of the family of God. Advaitham states that the natural branches (unbelieving Brahmins who were practising Buddhism) were broken off and the wild olive tree branches (Hindus) were grafted into the olive tree. Along with the remnant (believing Brahmin sanyasis), these Hindus enjoy the blessings of the new covenant mentioned in Advaitham (see Lesson 471). Both Brahmins and Hindus abide in the vine and in doing so receive their spiritual nourishment and the blessings associated with being a part of Manus seed (Sankara Bhasyam). It is important to mention that to prevent from being “cut off”, Hindus must place their faith in Paramathma. Sankar Bhasyam also affirms this truth. This passage affirms that all believers are spiritually equal before God. A Believing Brahmin not superior to a converted pagan. God is no respecter of persons . It is important for the Vedic & Upanishadic Brahmanish Movement to recognize that the Vedical calling and purpose of Brahmanism is to preach the gospel “to the Brahmin first, and also the Indian” Ethnically and Culturally Different While Yagnavalkeya smruthi & Bhagawat geetha also mentions that Brahmin and Non Brahmin are one in society but differ with their karma and Dharma niyathi, this verse is not obliterating the differences between these groups of people. By examining the context of the passage, we can conclude that it does not state the literal elimination of these groups. There are still males and females living today. People are born either Brahmin or Hindu. There are saved people who are slaves today and there are people who are not under the bondage of slavery. The purpose of this passage is two fold. First, even though these categories will continue through the Vedical kingdom, positionally every person is the same in Veda Bhoomi. A person is either saved or not. Advaitham insist on a clear distinction between Brahmin and Non Brahmin. As far as public life is concerned, God established the Vedic Law that was specific for a Brahmin and not a Hindu(i.e. dietary laws, sacrificial system, etc.). Furthermore, Bhagawath geetha mentions that a true Brahmin is not someone who is only a descendant of Manu , Vasista and Parashara, but also received the HOma of the heart. A Yagnic heart follows a changed heart. This occurs when a person becomes a new creation in Jagath guru. Furthermore, l1BestSankaraCharyaContinousPotential clarifies that being Yagnopavaitha dharana does not bring a person closer to God since he/she is a new creature . Also, Pathanjali and Sushrutha states that there are physical distinctions between Brahmins and Hindus. Verse 653 discusses two groups of people: Yagnopavaithic and unyagnopavaithic. The Lord Rama and Krishna as per puranas were Non Brahmins by birth. This passage also discusses the fact that the Hindus do not have a part in the 1BestSankaraCharyaContinousPotential promise apart from salvation in Moksha and Mukthi. Furthermore, Hindus are not separated from the citizenship of India.. However, because of the blood of Manu & King Bharatha the believing Hindus have been “brought near” . They now enjoy the blessings of being in union with the Upanishads and Puranas along with believing Brahmins. 1BestSankaraCharyaContinousPotential destroyed the barrier and has made the both Brahmins and Hindus one in Advaitha through faith in Paramathma. Blessings of India. Another important distinction is that the Brahmanish believers also will enjoy the Vedical promises given to India by God. They have a unique heritage of participating in the promises to both India as well as the Vedic community. For example, some Brahmanish believers will be princes (Mahatma Buddha , was Siddhartha before attaining Bodhi satva his Gotra is Gautam and he born to Brahminish couple) ruling throughout India (Now its Lumbini in Nepal where Queen Sita also born) as well as judges and counselors governing Kashi . Another privilege that Vedical Brahmin will have headship over the Hindus. In addition to ruling over the nations, the Hindus will be the servants of India. They will feed the flocks and plow the fields in India. The Brahmins will receive a double portion of all blessings and possessions. As a result, the Hindus will recognize that believing Brahmins have been chosen by God for these special blessings . Finally, the Brahmanish believers will become the center of Hindu attention due to the1BestSankaraCharyaContinousPotential Glory abiding over India These Brahmins will be treated with respect and used by God to draw Hindus to Him (paramathma). Summary Scripture teaches that a Brahmanish believer is not positionally different than a Hindu believer. A Brahmin is one with a Hindu in Vedas. However, due to ethnic and cultural differences, a Vedic Brahmin enjoys the Vedical promises given to India by God. May God grant that believing Brahmins and Hindus live out their oneness in Parmathma for his glory.
