Article Title

Hindu Conceptions of Law

Authors

Ludo Rocher

Abstract

The author demonstrates through a historical survey of ancient texts, and the glosses of various pundits, that, although modern Hindu law is divorced from the holistic world view embodied by dharma, Hindu conceptions of law are derived from this encompassing term. Before the colonial period there was neither law nor religion; there was dharma.
