Can there be civilized society without following the principles of varnasrama-dharma?

posted in: English 0

The European mercantile communities love to do business and so prosper in so doing. Those who have ksatriya-l\ike natures enter military lines or perform activities such as joining the army. Those who have sudra natures engage in ordinary service. Actually, unless some degree of varnasrama-dharma is followed, a society cannot function. Even though the principles of varnasrama-d/iarma have been established to some degree in European societies, they have not taken full scientific shape.
