Srila Prabhupada on Varnāśrama

“There should be a thorough overhauling of the social system, and society should revert to the Vedic principles, that is, the four varnas and the four asramas.” [SB 4.29.54]

“Unless in the human society the Varnasrama system is introduced, no scheme or social order, health order or any order, political order, will be successful.”

Varnāśrama-dharma in Srimad Bhagavatam

The king is supposed to be pious in whose state and cities the general populace strictly observes the system of eight social orders of varna and āśrama, and where all citizens engage in worshiping the Supreme Personality of Godhead by their particular occupations. SB 4.14.18

Today people engaged in government service and people who rule over the citizens have no respect for the varnāśrama-dharma. They complacently feel that the state is secular. In such a government, no one can be happy. The people must follow the varnāśrama-dharma, and the king must see that they are following it nicely.
