The results of this research were found that in sociology, the social status of human being has different status from their own duties but in Buddhist perspectives, the social status depends upon the result of Karma.
As analyzed, the three main basic rights of human being by means of the result of Karma are fair for all; right and freedom are justice, because the social status is upon the different duties. According to the human right, the social status is fair for all, because human beings have the rights for choosing to do one’s duty. For the equilibrium right is fair for all, because human beings have the same purpose which is duty for the sake of duty. For the brotherhood right, the social status is fair for all, because human beings originate from the same place,that is, Ábhassarabrahmas which are controlled by reproductive Karma. By this result, Karma is value and heirs for human beings.
