1. 6

    वेदोऽखिलो धर्ममूलं स्मृतिशीले च तद्विदाम् । आचारश्चैव साधूनामात्मनस्तुष्टिरेव च ॥ ६ ॥

    The whole Veda is the (first) source of the sacred law, next the tradition and the virtuous conduct of those who know the (Veda further), also the customs of holy men, and (finally) self-satisfaction.

  2. 7

    यः कश्चित् कस्य चिद् धर्मो मनुना परिकीर्तितः । स सर्वोऽभिहितो वेदे सर्वज्ञानमयो हि सः ॥ ७ ॥

    Whatever law has been ordained for any (person) by Manu, that has been fully declared in the Veda: for that (sage was) omniscient.

  3. 8

    सर्वं तु समवेक्ष्यैदं निखिलं ज्ञानचक्षुषा । श्रुतिप्रामाण्यतो विद्वान् स्वधर्मे निविशेत वै ॥ ८ ॥

    But a learned man after fully scrutinising all this with the eye of knowledge, should, in accordance with the authority of the revealed texts, be intent on (the performance of) his duties.

  4. 9

    श्रुतिस्मृत्योदितं धर्ममनुतिष्ठन् हि मानवः । इह कीर्तिमवाप्नोति प्रेत्य चानुत्तमं सुखम् ॥ ९ ॥

    For that man who obeys the law prescribed in the revealed texts and in the sacred tradition, gains fame in this (world) and after death unsurpassable bliss.

  5. 10

    श्रुतिस्तु वेदो विज्ञेयो धर्मशास्त्रं तु वै स्मृतिः । ते सर्वार्थेष्वमीमांस्ये ताभ्यां धर्मो हि निर्बभौ ॥ १० ॥

    But by Sruti (revelation) is meant the Veda, and by Smriti (tradition) the Institutes of the sacred law: those two must not be called into question in any matter, since from those two the sacred law shone forth.
