brahman (brahmin) lit. ‘knower of Brahma’; one who, as a result of realisation of Brahma, is endowed with twelve qualities: virtuousness, truthfulness, self-control, austerity, non-enviousness, humility, tolerance, non-maliciousness, expertise in sacrifice, charitableness, steadiness, and learning. One is not a brahman simply by being born as the son of a brahman; one must have the appropriate qualities and behaviour.

— books Sri Navadvipa-dhama-mahatmya / Glossary

A brahman ornamented with the twelve qualities but devoid of devotion to Krsna goes to hell.
