Now to begin. Expound, O son of Satyavati! Hearing the above saying of the Rishis, he the adept 4n the Veda and the Smriti, and exceedingly bright, like a a kindled fire or the sun, who was attended by his pupils, said in reply, 4. How can I venture to expound the law? It is our father who should be asked.
Life[ edit ] Parashara was raised by his grandfather Vasishtha because he lost his father at an early age. Anger is the passion of fools; it becometh not a wise man.
By whom, it may be asked, is anyone killed? Every man reaps the consequences of his own acts.
Anger, my son, is the destruction of all that man obtains by arduous exertions, of fame, and of devout austerities; and prevents the attainment of heaven or of emancipation.
The chief sages always shun wrath: be not subject to its influence, my child. Let no more of these unoffending spirits of darkness be consumed. Mercy is the might of the righteous. That is also called as Naradiya dharmashastra. NaradaSmriti depends on the eighteen titles of law, which are likewise said in the Manusmriti yet with some variety in names.
The content starts with a concise presentation into law and the courts previously digging into these 18 titles, dedicating a section to each.
Download NaradaSmriti — English , YajnavalkyaSmriti The YajnavalkyaSmriti was created after the Manusmriti, however like it and Naradasmriti, the content was made in shloka beautiful meter style. The lawful speculations inside the Yajnavalkya Smriti are displayed in three books, in particular achara-kanda traditions , vyavahara-kanda legal process and prayascitta-kanda wrongdoing and discipline, repentance. The content is in traditional Sanskrit, and is sorted out in three books.
These are achara-kanda verses , vyavahara-kanda verses and prayascitta-kanda verses.
This text is made in 2nd-5th century of common era in Gupta Period. ParasharaSmriti Parashara is maharishi and writer of some hindu indian ancient texts. If the death has happened by fall from a precipice, or in a country other than the native land, or if it be an infant which has died, or an anchorite who had renounced the world, — then the relatives are purified in the course of that very day. If information arrives that a person of the same family has died in a country other than his native land, — then the rule of three days or of one day does not obtain ; then the relatives are purified by bathing themselves on that very day.
For infants whose teeth had yet to grow, and for such as had an abortive birth, no cremation is ordained, nor any term of impurity, nor libation of water. If the child should perish, while yet in the womb, or should be miscarried, — then the woman has an impurity of as many days, as would be equal to the number of months the child had been in the womb. An abortion taking place before four months are past, is to be called only an ' oozing ' of the womb miscarriage it is named a ' fall ' or abortion when happening in the fifth month, or in the sixth ; thereafter it is called a parturition.
And then for the period of ten days should the impurity last. If an infant has died after teething, or if he has died before the growth of his teeth, but after the performance of tonsure upon him, — then for him crema- tion is prescribed, and his relatives are impure for full three nights.
From birth till the commencement of teething, im- purity ceases on the very day of death ; up to tonsure, impurity lasts for a single night ; it lasts three nights until the investiture with the sacred thread ; thenceforward, the term of impurity is full ten nights.
A person in his pupilage, and those in whose house offerings are regularly made on the fire ; these are not affected with impurity for birth, provided they refrain from coming into contact. A person observing a religious vow, a person purified by being engaged in some sacrificial rite, one of a re- generate caste who has set up a sacred fire in his house, and a person whose services are in requisition by the king — these, and a sovereign, have no impurity on account of birth.
Nothing but contact can cause to a Brahman an impure state, — whether it be on account of a birth or a death. To one refraining from all contact, there is no impurity, either for birth or for death. Artists and artisans, physicians, barbers, slaves, male or female, kings, and Brahmans who lead a sancti- fied religious life, — all these are purified without a moment's delay. A person, who is about to be engaged in a battle, or who has made preparations for making a gift, or who is in distress, or a Brahman who has been invited to partake a religious feast — these become pure then and there ; — so it has been ordained by the saints, — -as pure as if they had observed the full and prescribed term of purification.
If a householder, on the occasion of a birth, abso- lutely refrains from all contact, — then the mother becomes pure in ten days, while a plunge in the water will render the father pure. Impurity on the ground of death affects all relatives in the same way ; but that for birth affects only the father and the mother; that on the ground of birth affects only the mother ; the father becomes pure by washing himself.
But unfit, ness for being touched is anothter effect of impurity. This is confined solely to the parents, when there is a birth. Again, the mother remains unfit for being touched till the tenth day, while the father remains so till he takes a wash. These two are destined to reach the very highest of all regions, having penetrated through the solar orb ; — namely, a mendicant who has practised Yoga, and a soldier who has been killed, fighting with his face towards the foes.
Objects are pure eventhough if impurity raises due to birth in marriage or yagyas. They are considered pure. For those who died in the course of doing service to the Brahman caste, or while rescuing women, or cows being carried away by force, or in battles, — the impurity lasts only for a single night. Wherever a hero is killed, being surrounded by a number of foes, he reaches regions of undying bliss, — pro- vided he utters no cowardly words.
The sun trembles from his place on seeing a brahmana who has taken sanyasa. This sanyasi pierces the solar orb and reaches the ultimate position of brahman. He who comes forward to protect, when the fighting forces have been routed and are running away on all sides —wins the fruits of a well-performed sacrificial yagya rite. Celestial damsels seize for themselves, and take delight with the hero, whose body is wounded or cut by arrows, clubs, or maces.
If victorious, wealth is won ; if death results, beauti- ful women fall to his share ; since this corporeal frame is liable to perish in an instant's time, why should we be shy of meeting death on a field of battle? If blood oozes out from the forehead,'while fighting, and enters the mouth — that is on a par with a drink of the soma juice, for a fight is a religious rite properly performed : so it has been represented by the saints.
Those excellent Brahmans, who carry the corpse of a friendless Brahman, gain, at every step they take, one by one, all the objects for which a sacrifice is performed. Blessed is their deed. No evil happens to them ; nor do they incur a sin.
By plunging in water, they then and there are freed from impurity. For the impurity caused by carrying to the cremation ground and cremating the corpse of a superior Brahman who has departed this life, without a relative or a friend at his side, — one becomes pure by practising a single Pranayama.
Where a Brahman from ignorance follows the corpse of one who belongs to the military caste, he becomes im- pure for a single night, and purifies himself by eating the fivefold products of a cow. If a Brahman, with a feeble knowledge of law, should follow a corpse of the Shoodra caste, while the same is being carried to the burning-ground, he shall become impure for full three nights. When the period of three nights is complete, he should repair to a river that falls into the sea ; there a hun- dred Pranayamas are to be practised by him ; hereafter he eats clarified butter, and restores him to purity again.
When the Shoodras have finished all the obsequial rites, and have come to the water's side, then they may be follow- ed by persons of the regenerate caste. This law has pre- vailed from ancient times. Whether from excessive pride, excessive wrath, or from affection, or from fear, should a man or a woman hang one's self, — then this is the destiny that awaits him or her.
He or she sinks into a region utterly dark, and filled to the brink with pus and blood ; that torment is suffered for sixty thousand years. For such a being there should be no impurity, no libation of water, no cremation, nor any shedding of tears. Those who carry the corpse or set it on fire, or cut the rope wherewith the person hanged himself or herself, must purify themselves by a Taptakrichchhra ; so has Prajapati declared the law to be.
The Brahmans who touch the corpse of a per- son killed by cows or bulls, or of one who hanged himself, or of one whose death was caused by a person of the Brahman caste; and those who carry the corpse, or set fire to it; or those other persons who follow the corpse ; and also those who cut down the rope ; all should purify themselves by a Taptakrichchhra ; and then a number of Brahmans should be fed by them. By way of a gratuity they should give to a Brahman, a cow accompanied by a bull able to draw a cart.
Hot water should be drunk for three days , hot milk for three ; hot ghee for three ; and air should be the sole subsistence for the next three days. This rule governs the penance Taptakfichchhra If a Brahman associates with persons degraded by sin, but has been forced to do so against his wish, for five, or ten, or full twelve days ; or for half a month, or a month ; or for a couple of months ; or for half a year, or for one complete year ; at the expiration of the term he becomes degraded as they.
He should fast three days, if the association has ended in the first fortnight ; if in the second, the penance should be a Krichchhra ; a sort of penance extending over twelve continuous days, and consisting in partial or absolute fasts ; if in the third fortnight, the penance should be a Santapana-krichchhra ; if in the fourth fortnight, the penance is a fast for full ten days ; if in the fifth fortnight, the fast must be for full twelve days; if in the sixth fortnight, a single Chandrayana is the penance; if in the seventh, a double Chandrayana; if in the eighth, he should, for the sake of purity, observe a Krichchhra extending over full six months.
As many gold coins must the gratuity be, as there are fortnights in the period the association lasts. Atleast in order of a paksha 15 days with gift of gold.
If a woman meets not her lord, on the day that her monthly courses stop, — she after death goes to hell, — and becomes a widow in repeated births. If the husband meets not his wife on the day that her monthly courses cease, and she be near at hand, he incurs the awful sin of having killed a foetus. There is not the slightest doubt herein.
