Baudhayana Dharmasutra

by Georg Bühler | 1882 | 56,962 words

Summary: The prashnas of the Dharmasutra of Baudhayana consist of the Srautasutra and other ritual treatises, the Sulvasutra which deals with vedic geometry, and the Grihyasutra which deals with domestic rituals.

The Dharmasutra of Baudhayana like that of Apastamba also forms a part of the larger Kalpasutra. Likewise, it is composed of prashnas which literally means ‘questions’ or books.

The structure of this Dharmasutra is not very clear because it came down in an incomplete manner. Moreover, the text has undergone alterations in the form of additions and explanations over a period of time.

Alternative titles: Baudhāyana Dharmasūtra (बौधायन धर्मसूत्र), Baudhāyanadharmasūtra (बौधायनधर्मसूत्र), Baudhayanadharmasutra.
