Please kindly accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila
This is a humble attempt of sharing my understanding on Daivi Varnashram Dharma from study of Srila Prabhupada’s books. It is like offering ganges water to river Ganga. So hoping that Srila Prabhupada will be pleased and guide us further in His Divine Mission. I am begging the Vaisnavas to bestow their mercy in allowing me to further engage in this service by their guidance and instructions.

The original system is created by Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself: catur-varnyam maya srstam, guna-karma-vibhagasah,tasya kartaram api mam, viddhy akartaram avyayam
Human society is similar to any other animal society, but to elevate men from the animal status, the above-mentioned divisions are created by the Lord for the systematic development of Krsna consciousness. The tendency of a particular man toward work is determined by the modes of material nature which he has acquired. Such symptoms of life, according to the different modes of material nature, are described in the Eighteenth Chapter of this book. A person in Krsna consciousness, however, is above even the brahmans
Reasons for Varnashram Dharma
1)For Gradual Elevation to KC
2) who cannot fully take to KC
3) Dvija-bandus (those who are fallen from their brahminical positions)
4)to show by example
how to live in material world and perform devotional service
"One can worship the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Vishnu, by proper discharge of the principles of varna and ashrama. There is no alternative to pacifying the Lord by execution of the principles of the varnashrama system.“
Vishnu worship is the ultimate aim of human life. Those who take the license of married life for sense enjoyment must also take the responsibility to satisfy the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Vishnu, and the first stepping-stone is the varnashrama-dharma system. Varnashrama-dharma is the systematic institution for advancing in worship of Vishnu. However, if one directly engages in the process of devotional service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, it may not be necessary to undergo the disciplinary system of varnashrama-dharma. The other sons of Brahma, the Kumaras, directly engaged in devotional service, and thus they had no need to execute the principles of varnashrama-dharma.
Regular (Ideal) Eternal Vedic Varnashram Model with Lord Vishnu in the Center
We are using a pendulum to show, the Center as the religious ideals practised during the times of various personalities mentioned.
Throughout historical times, the society was run with Vishnu Worship in the center known as Varnashram Dharma sometimes known as Sanatan Dharma. However according to various negative elements in the society, Different philosophies are temporarily introduced to bring peace in the society, until the real Sanatan Dharma is introduced again by qualified agents of God of God Himself B.Gita 4.(7-8)
