The noontime of 10th Dec.’05 brought in the SGVP a wave of divinity when two saints of high spiritual caliber addressed the staff members of SGVP to guide them for moral goodness. The saint who graced the occasion by his presence explained the vision of Veda. As per his explanation, each human being is a medium in the form of knowledge to know the self and supreme power. In his oratory he explained the four divisions of caste in Indian society.

Brahmin is having a natural disposition to learn and teach others. Likewise Kshatriya is an inborn ruler because velour is predominant in them. The temperament of Vaishya is to earn money and harvesting to nourish the society. Shudras are assisting them because of their innate nature of service. If we devote Sattva, Rajas and Tamas by the letters A, B and C, then four possible sets can be formed. One is ABC, second BAC, third BCA and forth CBA and each set represents a section of society in the order of Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya and Shudra.

This division is based on psychological disposition. The social fabric of Indian Society is made according to the above-mentioned caste system that keeps perfect social equilibrium. Swamiji elucidated the matter by the help of Puranic stories. The rest of his speech was in a more light-hearted vein.
