The caste system is drastically different from any other society's class system as stars pointed out. What they want out of rebirth is not really into a better class in society, but rather, in a more advanced state spiritually. How they define their goal is a matter of controversy here in the West. It was the topic of the movie "Passage to India". I've heard that in India, this is regarded as traumatic and scary, not at all "peaceful" as it's interpreted in the West. When those gurus and such came to the West they Westernized their teachings to fit American dreams and notions, and these are foreign and horrific to Indian natives.
