Varṇa: Shifting Colour over the Course of a Lifetime with Drs. Ramkumar & Welch

October 5, 2023 - October 19, 2023

These two 1.5 hour live, online sessions (October 05 & 19, 2023) are part of Satsangam’s Vedic Threads’ ongoing membership-based course with Drs. Ramkumar & Welch. Schedule details available on your class page after registration.

These October sessions are dedicated to addressing questions from Vedic Threads participants. The first questions is: How does each varṇa (often translated as, “caste”) express itself in each of our lives?

The four varṇas, along with their functions are as follows:

  1. śūdraor follower: The function is śuśrūṣaṇa or seva=service. Tamas (the heavy, inert of the three mahā guṇas—great qualities) is said to predominate. But certainly we can perform service with a sattvic (the peaceful, clear of the three mahā guṇas—great qualities) outlook as well, that allows us to reach a higher state. Good followers.
  2. vaiśyaor businessman: The function is poṣaṇa=nourishment; to nourish and create wealth for the community. Rajas (the active of the three mahā guṇas—great qualities) with secondarily sattva, if the abundance they create goes to support their community,–or sometimes secondarily tamas if wealth is just hoarded.
  3. kṣatriyaor warrior: The function is pālana =protection. Rajas predominant with sattva, or sattva predominant with rajas.
  4. brāhmaṇaor preceptor. The function is dhāraṇam=support of the community. Predominates in sattva. Advises kṣatriya and prays for the welfare of the community

In this session, we hope to share and hear from many of the participants of Vedic Threads about how each of these varṇas manifest in each of our lives.

We welcome you to join us in heartfelt conversation on these themes, in our twice-monthly Vedic Threads membership-based course. For USD/month you have access to two live 1.5-hour sessions/month with Drs. Ramkumar, Welch, world-class guest instructors, dedicated participants from all over the world, and more than 40 hours of content from previous sessions.
