Overview

Smritis, in Indian spiritual lore, denote the class of canonical texts that teach traditional laws, civil or religious, as against shrutis that reveal the eternal Reality. Such laws, as is to be presumed, need periodical revision or modification, or even total nullifying and replacement. Narayana Guru took up the challenge to write a new Smriti text when he felt that the two-thousand-years old Manusmriti has became outdated for modern times. Narayana Smriti is an alternative new text fit for current times while being fully in conformity with the traditional wisdom, espoused in Indian literature.
