Description

SMRITIMUKTAPHALAM VARNASRAMA DHARMA KANDAM CANTO ON VARNASRAMA DHARMA

BY SRI VAIDYANATHA DIKSHITAR 

Translated by P.R.Kannan

‘Nibandhana’ book  compiled by  Vaidyanatha Dikshitar and titled ‘SMRITIMUKTAPHALAM’, meaning

‘Pearl of Smritis’. This great work, also called ‘VaidyanathaDikshitiyam’, is divided into six Kandams, the first being ‘Varnasrama Dharma Kandam’. Dharmas for people in the four Varnas and Asramas have been dealt with in great detail here, citing not only the views of various Rishis, but also Vedas, Puranas,Dharmasutras, previous Nibandhana books etc. together with the compiler’s own explanation as required.

About The Author:  Not much is known about this distinguished author’s personal life history. It appears that he lived about 300 years ago; was born in a place called Kandramanikkam in Chola country in Tamil Nadu in Vadula gotra in brahmana community. It is bewildering to note that in those early times when modern day facilities like printed books did not exist and sources of information were difficult to reach, one individual could have compiled so much from so many varied sources and presented such an easy-to-digest compilation.
