Manusmṛti (Skt.). The Laws of Manu, a Hindu dharmaśāstra attributed to the mythical law-giver Manu; also known as Mānava-dharmaśāstra or Manu-saṃhitā. Manusmṛti is the most authoritative of Sanskrit legal texts. Although having the authority of smṛti, this authority is rejected by some lower-caste Hindus who regard the Laws of Manu as brahman propaganda. The present compilation is no older than 100–300 CE.
