Primarily, kṣatriya (kshatriya) and the other two varṇa (varna; caste) are not worthy of a brāhmaṇa‘s (brahmana) greetings [Sanskrit abhivādana (abhivadana) means ‘greetings’. Anabhivādya (anabhivadya) literally means ‘ungreetable’ or ‘not worthy of salutation’]. An atheist, one without a sense of respect, one who is ungrateful, a village priest, a sinner, a heretic, a fallen ignorant, an astrologer, a mad and intoxicated one, one who is deceitful, one who is sly, one who is on the run, one who is unclean, one who has applied oil on one’s entire body including the head, one who is seated, one who is truly quarrelsome, one who is situated in the water, one indulging in coitus, one who begs for food, and a lying man are not worthwhile of salutations. Among women, one who has killed one’s husband, one who has undergone an abortion, one indulging in extramarital affairs, an ungrateful woman, one who gives in to anger excessively, a menstruating woman, one who has just given birth are not to be greeted. Apart from such persons, one who is engaged in the rituals of performing funeral rites or offering drinking water to the manes, one who is absorbed in praying to the gods, or one who is occupied with completing the ritual of a vow, yajña (yajna), or donation should not be greeted. Most importantly, it is no longer necessary to greet one who does not reciprocate the addressal after being acknowledged.
