Namaste all,
In apaSudrAdhikaraNa, a treatise belonging to Brahmasutra- Acharya clearly
concludes that Sudras have no right to access the srouta Brahmavidya
(examples such as vidura and dharmavyadha are exceptional. Vidura does
belong to a Brahmana father[Just like Aitereya] and the birth source for
dharmavyadha is a mystery). Depending on the situation- what are the other
means for a sudra to obtain the highest goal? Is it possible to realize
Brahman without the help of Sruti, since the verse shastraYonitwat
(vice-versa) also needs to be taken under consideration.

P.S: No need to rage out. Question regarding scriptures should be dealt
with scriptures.

Best Regards,
Shashwata Chowdhury
