In Hindu mythology, Manu is the progenitor of the human race. He is thus the lord and guardian of the living, and his name is attatches to the most important codification of Hindu law, the Manava-dharma-sastra (Laws of Manu). This text by Buhler since its first appearance has remained the most authentic and accepted English translation. The text has, for the first time, been rendered in a narrative form, making it an enjoyable reading for the serious scholars as well as the general readers.
