Brahmin and Knots
Scriptures are full of knots.
Mythology is woven into the rituals which makes its way into daily culture.
You have snake talking in the Garden of Eden as per Christian bible. Snakes certainly do not talk.
You have two persons having a lecture in the middle of battlefield in Hindu Gita, certainly no place to conduct a lecture.
So, scriptures are knotted and the inner meaning is not known intellectually. It is experienced inside oneself as one accelerates personal evolution.
This is what St John talks about in The Revelation, my notes in the previous post https://lifeandequities.wordpress.com/2016/09/06/truth-as-experienced-evolutionary-forerunners/
Why are scriptures knotted ?
Simply because the non-Brahmins do not have the privilege to read and comprehend the inner meaning of the scriptures.
You could call the authors / propagators of Vedas to be very clever and racist for restricting the scriptures only to the Brahmins. Actually the Brahmins of the yore were very humble, the did not even know what “shrewdness / cleverness” meant, and were liberally propagating the spread of knowledge.
The inclination and quality of the child determined their profession, not genetic lineage. Today, the system has retrograded far beyond imagination, the son of so-called Brahmin automatically inherits the surname of their father. It is not determined by their personal qualities. Son of Mr. Sharma is Mr. Sharma, whereas this was not meant to be, it was supposed to be evaluated by the teachers in the school aka gurukul where the child attends education. As per the original design, Shudra could be the son of Brahmin and vice-versa.
So, lets came back to what Brahmin means and who has the right to be called a Brahmin, not Mr. Sharma or Mr. Trivedi based on the inherited surname. Its pretty simple what Brahmin means as described in Hinduism. The definition of Brahmin is a person who can utter the sound of Om (Amen in Christianity, Ameen in Islam). This sound is referred to in the Vedas as
“Tailadharam avichannam deerha handani nadaval
avachyam pranavasyagram yastam vedasa vedavil”
It is like the unbroken flow of oil, like the continuous ring tone of the bell.
This sound cannot be uttered from the mouth.
This sound can only be heard in the inner ear upon withdrawal of the life currents from the body.
This is what the Guru of Swami Vivekananda, Ramakrishna has to say about Scriptures.
