>From the above it is clear that all the three varNa-s for whom Vedic rites
are prescribed were created 'at once'.
I think, instead of taking the literal meaning, we should see the broader
picture from the vedAntik perspective. i.e. from the veda purusha
everything originated and he pervades & goes beyond it also (sabhumim
vishvatO vrutvA, atyatishTadashAngulaM, purusha evedagaM sarvaM,
yadbhutaM, yaccha bhavyaM etc. in purusha sUkta). As we know, 'srushti
krama' is not uniform even in shruti and it is only upAya to saying
something else. So, taking these things literally without keeping the
sarvavyApakatva of brahman in mind would lead to further confusions like :
whether these varNa-s generated/originated in groups all of a sudden from
him, whether brAhmaNa, kshatriya & vaishya born from that purusha's mukha,
bAhu, Uru respectively with yagnOpaveeta on their shoulders and holding
samits, dharba, sword in their hands? and shUdra-s without this and
with only service mentality to the other three varNa-s originated from the
top portion of this purusha !!?? and what about foreigners who are
neither belong to any of these four varNa-s??
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
