V 6

The priests who lead the dawn and dusk ceremonies to Shiva are Brahmin. This is by bloodline

In the caste system, they have the highest standing, and if they’re here, doing this at either of the major ghats, their legitimacy is incontestable.

There are 2 more types, highest up in the order of worship. Famously, the Sadhu. But these are not, they just appear to be. It’s India, so anything goes

This is a Sadhu, with the book, or maybe even a Guru, the third.

But as usual, I may be wrong.
