A lot of people have contacted us asking why name the site after a religious caste! Some have even made fun of the word Brahman by breaking it into parts that have demeaning interpretations.
Let us clarify clearly that Brahman in JavaBrahman.com DOES NOT stand for the Hindu religious caste Brahmin, nor can it be broken down into smaller words with different meanings.
The word Brahman is from Sanskrit and it refers to knowledge at its purest/highest form.
Brahman (Sanskrit: ब्रह्मन्, Hindi: ब्रह्म) connotes the highest Universal Principle, the Ultimate Reality in the universe. In major schools of Hindu philosophy, it is the material, efficient, formal and final cause of all that exists. It is the pervasive, infinite, eternal truth and bliss which does not change, yet is the cause of all changes. Brahman as a metaphysical concept refers to the single binding unity behind diversity in all that exists in the universe.
Whereas, Brahmin is
Brahmin is a varna in Hinduism specialising in theory as priests, preservers and transmitters of sacred literature across generations.
To summarize, Java-Brahman actually has been named with the idea of Brahman being the “Highest Universal Principle” which has been interpreted as the peak of knowledge unifying our understanding of everything that exists or simply unbounded knowledge.
