Manusmriti is one metrical work of the Dharmastra textual tradition of ancient Vedic Sanatana Dharma, presently called Hinduism. Generally known in English as the Laws of Manu, or Dharmic discourse to vedic Rishis, on 'how to lead the life' or 'way of living' by various classes of society. The text presents itself as a discourse given by the sage Manu, to a congregation of seers, or rishis, who beseeched him, after the great floods, in the vedic state of 'Brahmavarta', in India, some ten thousand years ago, to tell them on, how to face such calamities in future by organising themselves and lead an organized life with the "guidelines for all the social classes". Veteran sages Manu and Bhrigu gave them a discourse in some shlokas, compilation of which is called 'Manusmriti'.

Manu ji Bhagwan se prapt samast gyan swayam lekar utpann huye ; atah sansar mei jis vidhi kaa palan kiya jaaye yah unhe usee smriti arthat eeshwar prapt gyan se prapt huee. Isliye usay smriti kahte hain.
Poorv kaal mei pustaken kisi press mei print nahi hotee thi, ek rishi se doosre rishi ko kanthash kaarai jaati thee, Yah jo manu ji ka gyan hai, unki smiriti se pradurbhoot hua isliye; jab tak lekhan paddhati prarambh nahi huye usay lakhon varsho tak isee prakar ek doosre ke dwara guru shishya parampara ke madhaym se akshunn rakaha gaya.
Jab isay lipi baddh kiya gaya tab lekhak ne ispar apna naam ankit isliye nahi kiya kyonki bharat mei vyakti apne mahatv ko pratipadit karne ke liye nahi ...more
