FEBRUARY 7, 2023

Jagdalpur: Puri Shankaracharya Swami Nischalananda Saraswati on Tuesday took a veiled dig at RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat after his reported statement that the caste system was created by pundits and not ordained by god.

Speaking during a religious meet in Jagdalpur district of Chhattisgarh, Puri Shankaracharya Swami Nischalananda Saraswati said varna system is the gift of Brahmins only.

Attacking the RSS, Swami Nischalananda Saraswati said that the ancestors of all Sanatani Hindus were Brahmins only.

Puri Shankaracharya is attending a 3-day religious gathering at Lal Bagh Maidan in Jagdalpur.

“The name of the first Brahmin is Brahma ji. You should study the scriptures. All the science and arts in the world are explained by Brahmins only. Education, defense and other services should always be balanced. If we don’t accept Sanatan system, then what system should be there? RSS has neither any book of its own nor the knowledge of the book. Varna system has been created by pundits and not by fools. Even today, people come to the Brahmins of India to solve problem of the world. All the knots of the United Nations are solved by coming to us,” Seer Swami Nischalananda Saraswati told reporters.

The seer also said that there is a need to create alternative caste hierarchy in western countries like USA in the absence of sanatan system.

“There is no varna system in countries like US and France. In such countries, there is a need to create an alternative like Brahmins, Vaishya, Kshatriya and shudra.
