Manu Smriti - Laws of Manu
Manu Smriti is one of the oldest and probably the most important of the smritis
which contain the laws (conduct in life) that need to be followed in various orders
of life and by persons of various tendencies (varnas).

Smritis mean "that which has to be remembered". Unlike the Vedas which are
considered of divine origin, the Smritis are of human composition which guide
individuals in their daily conduct according to time and place. They list the codes
and rules governing the actions of the individual, the community, society, and the
nation. They are also called Dharma Sastras or laws of righteous conduct.

Manu is considered a law giver in the Hindu tradition. Manu Smriti is one of the
18 Smritis. It is important to note that laws given by Manu, in Manu Smriti
although followed in some form even today, are not considered divine, and may
be modified by the society to keep up with the times. Indeed, it has been

speculated that in its current form, Manu Smriti represents laws that have been
added or modified throughout the history.

Here is the complete translation of the text of the Manu Smriti in the currently
available form :
Manu Smriti - Laws of Manu
Chapter 1:
1. The great sages approached Manu, who was seated with a collected mind, and,
having duly worshipped him, spoke as follows:
2. 'Deign, divine one, to declare to us precisely and in due order the sacred laws
of each of the (four chief) castes (varna) and of the intermediate ones.

3. 'For thou, O Lord, alone knowest the purport, (i.e.) the rites, and the
knowledge of the soul, (taught) in this whole ordinance of the Self-existent
(Svayambhu), which is unknowable and unfathomable.'

4. He, whose power is measureless, being thus asked by the high-minded great
sages, duly honoured them, and answered, 'Listen!'

5. This (universe) existed in the shape of Darkness, unperceived, destitute of
distinctive marks, unattainable by reasoning, unknowable, wholly immersed, as it
were, in deep sleep.

6. Then the divine Self-existent (Svayambhu, himself) indiscernible, (but) making (all) this, the great elements and the rest, discernible, appeared with irresistible (creative) power, dispelling the darkness.

7. He who can be perceived by the internal organ (alone), who is subtile,
indiscernible, and eternal, who contains all created beings and is inconceivable,
shone forth of his own (will).

8. He, desiring to produce beings of many kinds from his own body, first with a
thought created the waters, and placed his seed in them.
9. That (seed) became a golden egg, in brilliancy equal to the sun; in that (egg)
he himself was born as Brahman, the progenitor of the whole world.
10. The waters are called narah, (for) the waters are, indeed, the offspring of
Nara; as they were his first residence (ayana), he thence is named Narayana.

11. From that (first) cause, which is indiscernible, eternal, and both real and
unreal, was produced that male (Purusha), who is famed in this world (under the
appellation of) Brahman.

12. The divine one resided in that egg during a whole year, then he himself by his
thought (alone) divided it into two halves;

13. And out of those two halves he formed heaven and earth, between them the
middle sphere, the eight points of the horizon, and the eternal abode of the
waters.

14. From himself (atmanah) he also drew forth the mind, which is both real and
unreal, likewise from the mind egoism, which possesses the function of self-
consciousness (and is) lordly;

15. Moreover, the great one, the soul, and all (products) affected by the three
qualities, and, in their order, the five organs which perceive the objects of
sensation.

16. But, joining minute particles even of those six, which possess measureless
power, with particles of himself, he created all beings.

17. Because those six (kinds of) minute particles, which form the (creator's)
frame, enter (a-sri) these (creatures), therefore the wise call his frame sarira,
(the body.)

18. That the great elements enter, together with their functions and the mind,
through its minute parts the framer of all beings, the imperishable one.
19. But from minute body (-framing) particles of these seven very powerful
Purushas springs this (world), the perishable from the imperishable.

20. Among them each succeeding (element) acquires the quality of the preceding one, and whatever place (in the sequence) each of them occupies, even so many qualities it is declared to possess.

21. But in the beginning he assigned their several names, actions, and conditions
to all (created beings), even according to the words of the Veda.
