What are Smritis

8 06 2007

The Smritis are called lawbooks which of course hide their nature. They are really treatises expounding the supremacy of the Brahmins and their rights to special privileges. The defence of Bramhanism was more important than the progress of science. Bramhanism not only defended its previleges but set about extending them in a manner that would cover every decent man with shame. The Brahmins started particularly to expand the meaning of certain privileges granted to them by Manu.
