Dharmashastra (religious law)Source: Google Books: Hinduism and Law: An Introduction
Pariṣad (परिषद्, “religious court”).—In religious and moral matters—in cases of violation of personal law or religious norms—it was often a kind of religious court (brahmasabhā, pariṣad) of more or less learned Brahmins which administered and decided on penances. A chief judge occasionally called “dharmādhikārin” headed it. The brahmasabhā and also caste councils (jātisabhā) could expel individuals from their caste on grounds of impurity or impose fees and other sanctions.
Dharmashastra (धर्मशास्त्र, dharmaśāstra) contains the instructions (shastra) regarding religious conduct of livelihood (dharma), ceremonies, jurisprudence (study of law) and more. It is categorized as smriti, an important and authoritative selection of books dealing with the Hindu lifestyle.

Pariṣad refers to a “vedic assembly” in use during the rule of the Śilāhāra dynasty (r. 765-1215 A.D.).—The age-old Smṛtis had laid down civil and criminal laws, which it was his duty to administer. In case of doubt he had to consult the pariṣad or Assembly of Vedic Scholars. The existence of such a pariṣad in North Koṅkaṇ is indicated by the Cānje inscription, which record a royal gift to it.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Indian Epigraphical Glossary

Prakrit parisā (EI 8), a council; the council [of ministers]; cf. mantri-pariṣad, ‘council of ministers.’ Note: pariṣad is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
