I have heard of the SardulaKrana episode in the Buddhist text Divyavadana speaking on the life of King Trishanku( A chandala by birth) who wishes to marry off his son Sardulakarana to a Brahmin , and who finds find scant logic in the traditional Hindu caste system .He says-EkamIdam SarvamekaIdam i.e All are One.
If anybody can provide any other references from Buddhist literature showing such egalitarian attitudes.
