This volume contains the study of Visnu-Smrti, or Vaisnava Dharmasastra which is founded on its close connection with one of the oldest Vedic schools, the Kathas. This work has been the source from which other Sutrakaras drew, and deals with such subjects as are enshrined in duty and morality as the basis of law. THE Vishnu-Smriti or Vaishnava Dharmasastra or Vishnu-sutra is in the main a collection of ancient aphorisms on the sacred laws of India, and as such it ranks with the other ancient works of this class which have come down to our time. THE text has been translated by Julius Jolly.
