About : 

  • Philosopher King Janak was really a Brahmin by virtue of his spiritual Knowledge. He was a Kshatriya king by birth. As he was personally engaged in the development of agriculture and cattle farming he was a Vaisya. He might also be considered a Sudra because of his spirit of service. Thus he was a noble soul, acclaimed by the great sages. – Balakrishna Sama
