Live, Die, Repeat
The Caste System, Reincarnation, and Karma
The Caste System- a rigid social system of organization based on heredity
Hindus believed thoughts and desires humans find analyze unconscious impulses that came from their previous lives.
The Caste System Triangle
The Caste System
Above, I have explained the four main castes. Below, I explain the bottom, outside one. The cloud, known as "Gods", is the Brahman, that everybody wants to reach but could take many life times to achieve.
Some people do fight for equality for the Dalits or untouchables. But with what the Hindus believe, with what the Caste system does to them.... Its hard to get equality for these tortured humans.
The Caste System
"It's like you are born with a stamp on your forehead and you can never get rid of it," says Amit, one of the community correspondents.
The Unfair Lives of the Dalits
These people fall below the four castes, they are considered to be outside of the system. Which means, they are outside of society for any and all practical purposes. They're not even allowed to read the sacred texts. But, if they fulfill their duties -such as leather making or disposing of dead animals or humans- and accept their place in life (Dharma), they could reincarnate as a higher caste.
