  • PURPORT
  • 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

  • Visnu Purana (3.8.9) :
  • Varnasrama caravata purusena parah puman visnur aradhyate pantha nanyat tat-tosa-haranam
  • "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.

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)
