CHAPTER 2. HINDU SCRIPTURES : 18.104.22.168
1.The Scriptures : 2.
2. The Smritis : 3.2
2. Need for a New Law-Code -
It is not possible to follow some of the laws of Manu at the present time.
We can follow their spirit and not the letter.
Society is advancing.
When it advances, it outgrows certain laws which were valid and helpful at a particular stage of its growth.
Many new things which were not thought out by the old law-givers have come into existence now.
It is no use insisting people to follow now those old laws which have become obsolete.
Our present society has considerably changed.
A new Smriti to suit the requirements of this age is very necessary.
Another sage will place before the Hindus of our days a new suitable code of laws.
Time is ripe for a new Smriti.
Cordial greetings to this age.
