Chapter 4

Kaivalya (Omniscience) And The Bhagavan's Sermons

hagavan Mahavira rejected casteism as an arbitrary doctrine.

He stressed the fact that one could be called a Brahmana, a Ksatriya, a Vaisya or Sudra only on the basis of his conduct.

The Varna organization had been made by men.

It could not be accepted as made by God.
