This Holy book clears misconcepts about the system of classes and stages of life and explains their true meaning. The system of classes and stages of life (varna and ashram) is the very foundation of Indian (Bharatiya) society. The motive of this concept of system of classes and stages of life is to bring about individual spiritual progress and the upliftment of society respectively. This is the secret of the stability of Indian social life since thousands of years. Detailed nformation is provided on the origin, special features of the four classes - Brahman (priest), Kshatriya (warrior), Vaishya (businessman) and Shudra (labourer). The lifestyle that one should follow in the various stages (ashrams) of life and the spiritual practice to be undertaken is explained in the system of Righteousness known as a stage of life (ashram). These four stages are those of the celibate (brahmacharyashram), the householder (gruhasthashram), the retired householder (vanaprasthashram) and the ascetic (sannyasashram). The importance of stages of life, duties to be observed in those stages, the means of sustenance in those stages, etc. are also explained.
