Manusmti (written also as Manusmriti or Manusmruti) (Sanskrit: ), also known as Mnava-Dharmastra (Sanskrit: ), is the most important and earliest metrical work of the Dharmastra textual tradition of Hinduism.[1] Generally known in English as the Laws of Manu, it was first translated into English in 1794 by Sir William Jones, an English Orientalist and judge of the British Supreme Court of Judicature in Calcutta.[2] The text presents itself as a discourse given by Manu, the progenitor of mankind to a group of seers, or rishis, who beseech him to tell them the "law of all the social classes" (1.2). Manu became the standard point of reference for all future Dharmastras that followed it.[3]
