    Brahmin (Brāhmaṇa, ब्राह्मण) is the class of educators, law makers, scholars and preachers of Dharma in Hinduism[1][2][3][4]. It is said to occupy the highest position among the four varnas of India.

    The English word brahmin is an anglicised form of the Sanskrit word Brāhmana; (Brahman also refers to the supreme self in Hinduism). Brahmins are also called Vipra "inspired",[5] or Dvija "twice-born".[6] brahmins is also who perfoms vedic rituals[citation needed]. It is a misconception that brahmins are only priests. Only a subsect of brahmins were involved in the priestly duties. They also took up various other professions since late vedic ages like doctors, warriors, writers, poets, land owners, ministers, etc. Some parts of India were also ruled by Brahmin Kings.

    From Vedic times on, the Kings acted in close relationship with Brahmins (brahmakṣatra) and relied on them as their advisors, the Brahmins had become a powerful and influential group in India, and were known for discriminating against 'lower' castes.[7][8] In modern India, the Brahmins have experienced reverse discrimination.[9][10]
