Dharma Sastram by Dr S V Radhakrishna Sastrigal

In response to few comments posted in “achamanam” post on what is right/wrong, I thought I could post this to see if this helps.

The first book I bought after  reading Deivathin Kural Vol 1 is this book. Periyava mentioned this book as a good reference to know what our sastras say and what we should do at various occasions. This is an outstanding book that details almost everything – everything…..I interviewed Dr Radhakrishna Sastrigal during my India trip  and he is an authority in Sanskrit and have written several books – one including a book on Adi Shankara under the direct guidance of Mahaperiyava. He was very closely associated with Him for several years and instrumental in building a very large library for the Kanchi mutt.

I bought this and skimmed through the pages. Not to my surprise, this book will make us feel more guilty! In today’s world, we are not doing one single thing as per this book.

Once you read this, this will answer more questions than you know!
