Bhagavad Gita on Caste – An analysis

The Bhagavad Gita is arguably the most revered text in the Hindu religious tradition. It is almost universally regarded as one of the three canonical texts of Hindu philosophy (Prasthanatrayi) with the other two being Badarayana’s Brahma Sutras and the Mukhya Upanisads. This essay is an attempt to trace down all references to either caste or “Varna” in the Bhagavad Gita, and understand the context, meaning and implications of these references.
