- n. Alternative spelling of Vaishya.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
He is to be as vast and sincere as true brahmin in his aspiration towards Knowledge, as strong and courageous as kshatriya in his power and leadership, as generous and productive as vaishya in his dealing with life matters and wealth, as laborious and helpful as shudra in his service and help to others.
Unto the vaishya he gave skill, and unto the shudra he gave the duty of serving the three other classes.
A vaishya without skill is worthy of dispraise, as also a shudra who is bereft of humility (to the other orders).
