Teaching The caste system

The caste system

If a Hindu person was asked to explain the nature of the caste system, he or she might start to tell the story of Brahma. People who follow the Hindu religion believe Brahma was the creator of the universe. Brahma shows himself as having four parts. Each part represents a different group of people.
