Is it true that if a person converts to Sanatana Dharma, he still cannot be fully accepted as a Hindu because he has no caste? If it is so, then how can such person convince others that he is a sincere devotee of any Hindu God?

    You don't have to convince anyone! Lord Shiva knows you are His Devotee! In fact it is because of His Grace that you're His Devotee :) Let us focus on the Lord and the rest shall be taken care by Him (easier said than done of course!). All the best.

    You don't need to worry about Caste. Varna is important. Varna, literally COLOR, depends only on innate traits and propensities. So, your Guna decides your Varna and Varna is for all 7 billion people on this earth. Shiva doesn't care your Varna, Karma, Jati or anything else which bothers people. You don't need to convince people that you are devotee of Shiva. Just educate them what is true Varna and difference between caste and Varna.

  • Keshav, you can mark it as duplicate of Converting to Hinduism and Caste rather than closing as personal advice question.

  • @Spiritual Seeker, Just a reiteration of things mentioned earlier, there's nothing called caste in Hinduism, you either have jati or varna. Jati is determined by your genealogy (ancestry), while varna by your propensities (gunas). May 17, 2016 at 4:49
