A succinct and highly useful information about Hindu scriptural authorities and the Samskaras.

Manu has mentioned four sources of Dharma - Shruti, Smriti, Custom of good people and that which appeals to one's good conscience. Yajnavalkya has added Samyaksankalpajah-karmah and also stated the fourteen Vidyasthanaas. Manu also states that the best authority is the entire Veda. The author has given descriptions of all these authorities.

This hand-book, on a useful subject and explained in an interesting manner, has been widely appreciated.
