  • Brahmana is one who possesses the qualities of truthfulness, generosity, forbearance, good conduct, total absence of cruelty, self-control and compassion(Nahusha Prashna, Mahabharata). with a conviction that the only truth that is worth knowing is the supreme Brahman.(Thus called Brahmana)..Shad karma of a Brahmana are Adhyapanam,Adhyayanam,Yajanam,Yaajanam, Dhaanam,Prathigraham. A Rishi is one who has acquired spiritual wisdom, enlightment (Brahma nishta). Rishi is explained in hindupedia.com/en/%E1%B9%9A%E1%B9%A3i

  • A Brahmana is a fellow of the Brahmin caste. Brahmins do not inherently have divine knowledge. A rishi is a knower of mantras, a term often ascribed to knowers of divinne knowledge. You do not to be a Brahmin to be a rishi. Aug 18, 2022 at 5:26
