Vasistha Dharmasutra

by Georg Bühler | 1882 | 44,713 words

Summary: The Dharmasutra of Vasistha forms an independent treatise and has no relationship with the Kalpasutra. The chapters of this text are divided in a way that resemble the practice of later Smritis. This Dharmasutra has a unique characteristic, it cites the opinions of Manu at many places. This led scholars like Bühler among others to form a hypothesis that there must have been a Dharmasutra of Manu.

Alternative titles: Vāsiṣṭha (Vasishtha) Dharmasūtra (वासिष्ठ (वसिस्ह्थ) धर्मसूत्र), Vāsiṣṭhadharmasūtra (वासिष्ठधर्मसूत्र), Vasishthadharmasutra, Vasisthadharmasutra.
