DharmaÄ‚stra has been a discipline comprising the vast rangeof subjects related to regulations on ethics, social and moral behavior,administration, laws of inheritance and various other issues relatedto diplomacy and polity. The tradition of DharmaÄ‚stra developedthrough the hundreds of texts like DharmasÒtras and Sm¼tis.Yajnavalkya in his Sm¼ti has noted ten major authors of Sm¼tis, butVœramitramiÄra, the author of Vœramitrodaya has enlarged the listby citing many other Sm¼tis.
