Varna-sankara and Inter Caste Marriage.

Varna-Sankara and Inter Caste Marriage.


Many people use this term without understanding its meaning, in this thread, I will try to explain what is Varna-Sankara and is it related to Inter Caste marriages.



First, let's look at Manusmriti -

Those born out of "Adultery", among "Same varna" or different Varna, those born out of "incest", or those born to people who have neglected their duties
Are called "Varnasankaras"

Manusmriti(10.24)

See Medhatithi's comment-



So according to this if a Brahmin does not perform the duties of a Brahmin then children born to them are also Varnasankaras.

This also proves that Varna is indeed karma/quality-based and not Birth based because neglecting the duty of own Varna also makes children born to them as Varnasankaras.
But how is it related to inter-caste marriage?

In today's times "Caste" just represents a Varna system that got rigid with time, these Castes do not represent real Varnas which are based on qualities.

As the Vedic System has collapsed real Varna is unknown, people should match qualities while marrying and not Castes, If qualities match then they should marry. Qualities like intelligence, nature, thinking, etc.

How many people who call themselves Brahmins today follow the duties of Brahmins?
Doing Yajna, studying and teaching Vedas, Dana ( Ms 1/88)

How many have qualities as mentioned in Bhagwat Geeta (18/42)?
Hence people should marry by matching qualities and Interests with each other and not Castes.
But Gotra and Sapinda rule should be kept in mind, Gotra has everything to do with genetics, to avoid genetic disorders this system was created by our Rishis.
According to Kulluka's commentary on this verse of Manusmriti, those born out of marriage in the same Gotra are also Varnasankaras.
Last I would like to address my brothers and sisters who believe in Borth based system.

You think qualities are according to birth, I say qualities are according to birth and other factors.

So you should have no objection to marriage based on qualities.


Note - In no way do I support Inter-Faith/ Religion marriages, because when two people have so much difference in their beliefs their qualities can never match.
