I belong to the Vishwakarma community and am not able to decide on the caste (Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya or Shudra) I belong.

As per my knowledge and learning, even the Vedas, Manusmriti and other granthas are not unanimous on this.

Is there any authentic verdict on this issue?

About Vishvakarma being a brahmin by caste and community , I have come across authentic granth 'Bhagwadpuran' " Shri Bhagwat -Sudha- Sagar{Shuk-Sagar} " Shrimadbhagavat Maha Puran in hindi. Published by Geeta Press Gorakhpur. In this context kindly go through : 1.Shasth skandh - saatwaan Adhyay(page 346) to terehwaanadhyay(page 362). After having gone through ,I feel ,there is left no doubt about Wishvkrma being a brahmin.Wishvroop and Vritrasur in the text are of Vishvakarma community and family.
