brahmin (n.) “member of Boston’s upper class,” 1823, figurative use of Brahman “member of the highest priestly Hindu caste,” late 15c., from Sanskrit brahmana-s, from brahman- “prayer,” also “the universal soul, the Absolute,” which is of uncertain origin. Related to Brahma.
Brahmins were traditionally responsible for religious rituals in temples, as intermediaries between temple deities and devotees, as well as rite of passage rituals such as solemnising a wedding with hymns and prayers.However, Indian texts suggest that Brahmins were often agriculturalists and warriors in ancient and medieval India.
