From the Jacket: Under the series of Smrtis collectively known as

Dharma-sastra, Visnusmrti or Vaisnava Dharma-sastra occupies an unique

place. There are many smrtis ascribed to the names of various Rsis like Vyasa,

Parasara, Manu, Yajnavalkya, Atri etc. But visnusmrti is famous after the name of

lord Visnu himself. This foremost of the Dharma Sastras ha been promulgated b

y the god himself. It contains one hundred chapters in total. In the beginning of

this treating, lord visnu felt a desire of creating creatures; knowing the earth to be

under water, he, as in the cycle before, uplifted the earth supported upon the

auspicious (figure of the) boar, delighting to sport in the water. The initial

chapters after chapter one describe the duties of the four-casts, duties of the King

and also laws relating to treasure-finds. The subsequent chapters deal with

the laws of purification, viz., Upakarman, Utsarga, Upanayan, Purifying Mantras

from the Vedas etc. and penances, viz., Tarpana, Pitr rites. Apart from these rites,

the code of Visnu elaborates about the duties of Brahmans, duties of owner and

servant etc. It also mentions about the three kinds of Property of a house-holder

and their comparative moral worth's. The present translation of
Visnusmrti by M.N. Dutt is an authentic English translation with various notes at

appropriate places for researchers. The Editor of the present book has further

enhanced the English Translation by replacing older usage of English words with

the corresponding modern words. He has done a good labour to put Sanskrit text

and English translation side by side for the benefit of readers. Further, he has
