Hare Krishna to all the devotees!
I feel that my question is a common one but yet it is sometimes quite confusing too. How does a devotee or an individual on the path of spirituality find one’s own Svadharma? How does he/she discover what Varna they are in ? Krishna in the Gita gives a lot of stress on this
“It is far better to discharge one's prescribed duties, even though faultily, than another's duties perfectly. Destruction in the course of performing one's own duty is better than engaging in another's duties, for to follow another's path is dangerous” (BG 3.35).
From the scriptures we understand that the Para Dharma of all beings is to serve the Lord. But how do we find our Svadharma? Like Arjuna was a skilled Archer Kshatriya householder in Mahabharat.
I have heard from other devotees that we all are shudras in Kali Yuga, but I also believe that each being has a potential to become more then a shudra in his/her lifetime and become a Vaishnav. The Pandavas were all Vaishnav’s but by their psycho physical nature, they were Kshatriyas.
I will be very thankful and blessed if I can receive any practical guidance on the above.
P.S : Just as an info on my background , I am a householder and have family responsibilities. I have an engineering education but I feel that it’s not for me.
