Madhura Majjhima Majjhimapa.n.naasa, Raaja Vagga MN.084 M.ii.083-90 21/090 caste, discrimination Given after the Buddha’s death. Wealth confers power on all, not only on the Brahmins. A brahmin experiences the retribution of his actions, both good and bad, in this world and the next, just as do members of other castes. Therefore a brahmin ascetic deserves no more homage than an ascetic of other castes. As the result of hearing the teaching, Avantiputta takes refuge in Buddhism.
