Lingatyatism rejects almost every aspect of Hinduism such as caste system, temples, priestly class, the six impurities of Hinduism, and purification by rituals, karma, rebirth etc, and as such cannot be referred to as a …caste within Hinduism. It is a distinct Shaivite denomination within Hinduism in India. It makes several departures from mainstream Hinduism and propounds monotheism. It was established by Basavanna in the 12th Century, who was a social reformer and a great humanitarian. He introduced the system of wearing of Shivalinga upon one's body. (MORE)

Firstly, before I answer your question, please do not confuse Caste with Spirituality, for there is no mention of caste systems in any Hindu Scripture. Caste is a political structure created by ancient Indian monarchs. I am a Theology Professor, with a specialty in Eastern Philosophy and Anthropolo…gy. Narain, or Narine names belong to a low caste system in pre-colonial India. There are the the main Castes and within those Castes exists sub-castes. The name(s) that I've mentioned would usuallly belong to a low working class caste, who possessed little, or no influence (that means political, or any type of rights). The people with this name would have generally origniated in the Northern regions of India (possibly highly populated, or rural areas). Uttar Pradesh (U.P.) is the area where this name would have origniated. U.P. which is a fairly poor state would have contained Indentured Workers, who would have been sent to British colonies to work, or to improve their status. Narain is not a caste and generally a part of the first name in India (example - Ram Narain Gupta). Now this person's caste is Gupta, which is from trader class, and his first name could be abridged to just Ram. Sometimes, people will not use their caste name. In that case Narain or Narayan would appear as a caste name which actually it is not (example - Jaiprakash Narayan). Narayan could certainly be the first name (example - Narayan Purohit). Narayan or Narayana actually is the name of Lord Vishnu. (MORE)

Good friend's and Historians such as Sir Jagabandhu Singh have referenced the Padma Purana and the Brahmavaibarta Purana and have come to the conclusion that Mahishyas and Kaivarttas (Kaibarttas) are the same caste.  In general terms, "the child born of a Kshatriya father and Vaishya mother i…s called a Kaivartta or Mahisya. If one takes the two terms to be synonymous then as Kaivarttas. Mahisya is having a status in between both Kshatriya and Vaishya, the people are spread through a geographic location extending from modern-day Maharashtra, Chattisgarh, and few in other states.  The Bengali peoples historian Sevananda Bharati is of the opinion that the ancient home of the Mahishya race is near the present day Ratnavati on the bank of the Narmada River, which was then known as Mahishamati.  For whatever reason, the Mahishyas migrated from Ayodhya and entered what is now Midnapore through the Chota Nagpur Plateau.  Biharilal Kalye believes that the founder of the Ganga Dynasty of Orissa, Anantavarman belonged to the Mahishya race.  Other such as Jagabandhu Singh diagree and opine that he belonged to Kshatriya caste of Paralakhemundi.  Sir Harbert Risley agree with Kalye and says, in The Tribes and Castes of Bengal states that five leaders established five kingdoms in Midnapore namely, Tamralipta or Tamluk, Balista or Moynagarh, Turkee, Sujamatha, and Kutabpur.  The inhabitants of Tamralipta were a seafaring race and inhabited modern Bengal and the southern coast of India.  Mahishya community is often closely related with Matsya but with no certainty. (MORE)

They Belong to Chaurasiya Community .Which is Actually a BrahminCommunity in Northen India ,but divided in to various Sub Castes..(For Ref - See Wikepedia, Chaurasiya ) . Chaurasia is a Brahmin communityin India and Nepal. The name originated from ancient Indian Vedas which basically refers t…o a Brahmincommunity in India. The word originates from a Vedic word 'chaturashiitah' which refers toeighty-four in sansakrita . In ancientIndia, according to the Hindu mythology it isbelieved there are eighty four thousand Yonis (breeds, types) of Gods existing in this universe. Every specieswhich exist on Earth belong to a particular Yoni. At a later stageand for easy pronunciation it evolved to 'Chaurasia' (a Hindiequivalent also refers to eighty-four). . A famous story behind the birth of this word states that onceall dev gans ( Devtas , Gods) assembled on Earthat a place called 'Naumi Sharayan' to perform some auspiciousceremony, and while they were approaching back to 'Bakunthya Dham'(Heaven) they all started feeling thirsty due to extreme heat onearth when a particular community came forward and quenched theirthirst by serving them Beatle leaves .Impressed by theirhospitality, the Devtas not only blessed them but also honouredthem by gifting the title chaturashiitah i.e. 'CHAURASIA' .According to the BaudhÃ¢yanas'rauta-sÃ»tra CHAURASIA's belong toKashyapa, Some believe that they belong to [BharadvÃ¢ja],So thereare many beliefs about Gotras . . In recent days people of this community are employed in avariety of occupations (some also refers themselves as 'Vaishya'i.e. traders,since becoming followers of Vallabhacharya ji,adopting Vaishanavism nearly 300 years ago.) and their religioustraditions and culture are becoming less of a factor in dailylife. . History of Chaurasia Community . According to mythology, Mohini distributed Amrut (ambrosia)amongst various gods. The urn with the remaining of the Amrut waskept near Indra's elephant Â« Nagraja Â». Growing inside the urn wasa strange creeping plant and the gods became ecstatic. Vishnuordered Dhanvantari to examine the plant. He thus discovered itsstimulating quality. From then on, Vishnu began to offer itsleaves, as a gesture of love and affection. Since, it is said ,that the betel trine was born. It began to be associated with theBrahma-Vishnu-Mahesh Trinity. The areca nut was attributed toBrahma, the Tambool (betel) leaf to Vishnu and lime to Mahesh. . According to another legend, after the Pandavas' victory atHastinapur, they began to have a fervent desire for Tambool. Amessenger was urgently sent to the underground abode of the Queenof the snakes. The Queen, only too happy to oblige, cut the extremephalange of her little finger and sent it to the Pandavas. Thephalange was planted with great ceremony and soon the Betel plantgrew out of the phalange. The creeper is since then referred to asÂ« Nagveli Â» the snake plant. The ceremony of the leavescommemorates this origin and the Barais offer prayers to the God ofsnakes on the occasion. . Gotras . Chaurasia community belongs to the following Gotras . Kashyapa .
