  1. Namaskaram, How vishwamitra a kshatriya became a brahamana ? Therefore, can I come to conclusion that any person of any varna can become a brahmana in the same birth? What is the secret behind it ? please can you explain


  2. Dear Balaji Swamin
    Varnam is best described by karma or action. Only by action one becomes a Bramhmana, Kshatriya, Vaishya or the fourth category. Hence to become a brahmana one has to completely adhere to sastras and lead life as such. Very few people are like that in today’s world. Best is to be a prapanna where no qualification is required for moksha, only thing required is mumukshatva and acharyan’s grace. Please forgive adiyen for any apacharams in replying to this post.
