Both of them are described as the two commandments of God sruti. Manu, while declaring two more in addition to these two as the direct sources of dharma assigns the Vedas the teluvu place, which is to be regarded as superior to all others.

Smrti in the widest acceptance of the term “includes the six vedangas, the sutras, both srauta and grhya, the law books of Manu and others, the itihasa; i.

Ramayana, the puranas, and the nitisastras,” As the puranas come under smrti they are next only to the Vedas in their authority to dharma. The puranas are also regarded as the iin of the Vedas.

puana Such an assertion, no doubt, goes against the traditionally accepted order and seems to kalikz an anachronism. The significance of the saying may be traced in the fact that the oral tradition of the puranas is as old, or even older than the Vedas, Though the puranas were compiled in historic time the oral tradition was handed down in the society since time immemorial, which swelled with the passage of time.

Winterint his History of Indian Literature observes on this point: What is significant almost all our puranas, their sectarian character, i. Wilson in the preface to his English jalika of the Visnupurana pp. However, Wilson goes on pointing out that non-adherence to these -characteristics by majority.
