more on asavarna anuloma; from Ravi Chandrasekhara
- Dear All,
Pranam, I have more to add:
1.Given the hierarchy within a varna; how many are there or can there
be due to asavarna anulom?
It appears almost all jatis (that I am aware of) claim to be pure
vipras; so what are vipra sucastes like ambashtas (vipra father and
vaisya mother), etc ?
In Manu Smriti and Arthashastra the progeny of a vipra male and
female kshatriya is called a vipra (VIP). (Actually the English
transl I read use Brahmin as vipra). But Yagnavalka calls it a
Mudravasika (MV)(I may incorrect on the spelling). Which is correct ?
Based what I have read in this forum: a MV male would have to marry a
MV female as the first (or only if monogamous) wife and other wives
in the asavarna anulom would have to "lower" grades in the vipra
hierarchy or females from the other 3 varnas.
A MV female would have to marry a MV male or V male (but she would be
a secondary wife in the form of asavarna anulom for a V male).
What would the progeny of a V male and MV female be ? Let us call
the female issue MV2. If MV2 female marries a V male, what about
their progeny ?
Would there be a situation that as many claases of vipras produced
via asavarna anulom, that their may not be ample spouses for the
males as savarna anulom ?
Also this must required good record keeping to keep track of all the
2.What is the svadharma for example of the hierarchies within the
vipra varna ?
3.I will comment on a later post re: Veetahavya, that I mentioned
