Pratyāmnāna (प्रत्याम्नान) refers to a “corollary”, according to the Āpastamba-yajña-paribhāṣā-sūtras.—“The Prakṛti stops from three causes, from a corollary [viz., pratyāmnāna], from a prohibition, and from loss of purpose”. Commentary: A corollary (pratyāmnāna) occurs, when it is said, “instead of Kuśa grass, let him make a barhis of reeds”.
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.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
