Notes on Buddhism:


Thus said the Buddha in the Dhammapada (ब्राह्मणवर्ग):

न जटाभिर्न गोत्रेण न जात्या भवति ब्राह्मणः । यस्मिन् सत्यं च धर्मं च स: शुचिः स च ब्राह्मणः ॥

“Not by his hair, gotra, or jaati does a person become a Brahmana. One who has truth and Dharma, he is pure and is a Brahmana.”
