    INTRODUCTION

    To lead a peaceful life,one must follow the sastras which are the rules of the almighty that cannot

    be changed by passage of time(i.e.kruta,thretha,dwapara&kali yuga).The almighty says,

    Shruthi smrithi mamaivaagya yaasthaam ullangya varthathe|

    Aagya chhedi mamadhrrohi math bhaktopi na vaishnavahah||

    Which means,vedas and sastras are my commands and one who surpasses these rules have

    breaken my laws and cannot be considered as my bhakta or a vaishnava.

    So everybody who seek the grace of lord must follow the smrithis(dharma sastras) in order to get

    rid of sins and to attain purity of mind.

    It is said that so many sastras which binds every humanbeing in this world is meant for purifying

    the mind(chitta shuddhi).Aadi shankara in his viveka-choodamani says,

    CHITTA SUDDHAYE KARMA NA TU VASTHU UPALABDAYE|

    VASHTHU SIDDHIRVICHARAENA NA KINCHITH KARMAKOTIBIHI:||

    Which means, rituals are meant only to purify the mind and not attain almighty but he can be

    known only through vichara(introspection) &not by doing a crore of rituals.

    Even if a person attains the knowledge of the almightys by his grace he should perform

    karma(rituals) for the sake of loka sangharah:(welfare of the world). Lord krishna in shri

    bhagavath geeta says,

    yath yath aacharathi shrestahahthath thataeva etharo janahah:|

    Saha yath pramanam kuruthae lokahah thath anuvarthathe||
