Hanuman was the child of Añjanā and Kesari. Both Anjana and Kesari belonged to the Vanara clan.

Is the Varna System mentioned in our scriptures applicable only to human beings or is it applicable to Vanaras as well?

In any case, what is the varna (caste) of Hanuman?

Likewise, what is the varna of Jambavan (father of Krishna's third most important wife Jambavathi)?

  • @moonstar2001 Ha ha, I am in research of a good, perfect, counter-less and valid example for inter-caste marriage in Hindu scriptures, which I didn't find.

    :-) "which I didn't find." and what does that tell you.

    It only applies to human beings, not other races. Jul 3 '17 at 16:43

    there is no good, perfect, counter-less and valid valid example for inter-caste marriage and this means that inter-caste is valid and must be encouraged?
