Vaiśya

En el marco del hinduismo, un vaishia (en sánscrito, वैश्य vaiśya) es un miembro de la tercera de las cuatro castas de la sociedad india tradicional. La casta vaishia abarca a comerciantes, artesanos, terratenientes y agricultores.

Una persona nacida en una familia de casta bráhmana (sacerdotes), chatría (militares-políticos) o vaishia se les llama duiya (nacido por segunda vez) cuando pasa por la ceremonia upanaiana, la iniciación en la educación védica.
