A very common holy Hindu text one would find in Hindu homes is 'Bhagavad Gita' (Song of the God). The text embodies what it is to be a Hindu, all written by the Brahmin caste. The main purpose of this text is to justify one's born caste, and glorify the virtues that would bring to one's life if one fulfills one's caste duties, while demonizing low castes. It is written about 2000+ years ago. Such theologies have long created a Hindu culture infused with caste system. It is hard to get rid of something like that as easy as Japan did.
Bhagavad Gita is about Karma Yoga (or performing one's duties). This is the first time I am reading someone saying that Bhagwat Gita "main purpose" is to glorify caste.
