In Dona Brahmana Sutta, a Buddhist scripture, Buddha reminds a Brahmin named Dona about five types of Brahmins as described by Vedic Seers.
The blessed one said, "Dona, those ancient sages the makers, those handing down the tradition of the scriptures, which at present are sung, handed down, collected and are re -sung and recited now, are the following. Such as Aṭṭhaka, Vāmaka, Vāmadeva, Vessāmitta, Yamtaggi, Angīrasa, Bhāradvāja, Vāseṭṭha, Kassapa and Bhagu. They specify these five kinds of Brahmins :-
- The one similar to Brahma (brahmasamaṃ),
- The one similar to Deva (devasamaṃ),
- The one on the boundary (mariyādaṃ),
- The one who has split the boundary (sambhinnamariyādaṃ) and
- The Brahmin outcaste (brāhmaṇacaṇḍālaṃ, Chandala as a Brahmin)
Buddha then goes on to explain each of those types. Since the discourse is very long I am not quoting it here.
My question is, which Hindu scripture mentions these five kinds of Brahmins?
