|"Stay there, you outcast!" said the Brahmin.|
1. "Whoever is angry, harbors hatred, and is reluctant to speak well of others (discounting the good of others), twisted in views, deceitful -- know that person as an outcast.
- [MEANING: By spiritually-motivated sexual abstinence/celibacy (brahmacharya="vehicle or way to Brahma") poor Sopaka, who was considered an outcast, reached the heavenly Realm of Brahma (considered the God Supreme by Brahmins) by his karma/conduct of having relinquished sensual craving that leads to rebirth in lower-heavenly, human, animal, and subhuman worlds within the "Sensual Sphere" or Kama Loka. And and by so doing Sopaka was reborn as Matanga, so famous (holy) he went from "untouchable" to someone attended on by members of the two highest castes, warriors and priests.]
