Most Neo Buddhists says that Bahujan samaj are Shudra and have major proportion demography because they have to serve above three Bhramin Kshatriya and Vaishya varnas
If you see how Shudra are defined in BH 18:44
Serving through work is the natural duty for those with the qualities of Shudras.
But if you see many Dalit/Shudra caste they all are either manufacturer , traders or service providers in which they have expertise and they sell their skills in exchange of Money. That clearly states that they are monetary self reliant not dependent on Upper caste.
Some of the caste for examples are Dalits but are entrepreneurs.
- Jatav (Charmkar) leather manufacturers
- Matang(Maharashtra) broom maker
- Bunkar weavers
- Dhobi Laundry
That means Bahujan samaj comes in Vaesyha Varna.
Any thoughts ..?
