The Dharmasutra of pastamba forms a part of the larger Kalpastra of pastamba. It contains thirty pranas, which literally means questions or books. The subjects of this Dharmastra are well organized and preserved in good condition. These praanas consist of the rautastra followed by Mantrapha which is used in domestic rites and is a collection of ritual formulas, the Ghyastra which deals with domestic rituals and lastly the ulvastra which are principles of geometry needed for vedic rituals.
