Varnas

Varnas — evolutionary stages of manís development that are corresponded by his social role: shudras ó servants, vaishyas ó merchants, peasants, craftsmen, kshatriyas ó leaders, warriors, brahmans ó in the original meaning of the word ó those who have attained the state of Brahman.

In India and in a number of other countries the varna membership became inherited by birth. This rule has been disputed by many thinkers and is denied by God.
