Laghudharmaprakasika satisfies the characteristics of a Smrti or Dharma Sastra. In twelve chapters it deals with the origin of the four stages of life, the sixteen customary rites of purification, the duties of a king, the duties of women and allied topics. The work has drawn upon earlier works like Manusmrti and Yajnavalkyasmrti, though it does not quote stanza from them. The mode of punishment for adultery is novel in that a proper trial by authorities well-versed in Vedic lore is enjoined to establish the guilt beyond doubt. It has the approval of the king since the presence of his representative is a must for the trial called Smartavicara which was in vogue upto the beginning of the twentieth century AD.The peculiar customs enumerated here are a part of the life of the people of Kerala even at present. The work supplies a mine of information to a historian since it sheds much light on the history, culture, Sociology and Anthropology and allied fields.Printed Pages: 189.
