How to use Smriti in a sentence
The Smriti of Narada belongs to a still later period, perhaps 436 to the 5th or 6th century of our era.
The permanent identity of names and forms is declared in Sruti as well as Smriti; compare, for instance, Rik.
Smriti moreover speaks of Vidûra and others who were born from Sûdra mothers as possessing eminent knowledge.
And thus Smriti says that 'Âditya, having assumed the shape of a man, came to Kuntî.'
That this doctrine cannot be proved either by Smriti or by ratiocination will be shown later on.
