    But the various plants with many stalks, growing from one or several roots, the different kinds of grasses, the climbing plants and the creepers spring all from seed or from slips. The first one is dharti or patience. In socio-religious terms dharma upholds private and public life and establishes social, moral, and religious order.

The country was divided into numerous tribes, nations, or states; it was only when a powerful monarch would rise that a large part of the country would come under one head. But punishments were too inadequate for the fulfilment of dharma: These penances were a necessary institution, to make amends for bad actions, of which the king did not take any notice, and also for offenses done secretly or remaining unpunished for various reasons.

Manu was the most important of these and his Manava Dharma-shastra Laws of Manu is the most famous of the texts. He who persists in discharging his duties in the right manner, reaches the deathless state. Our society is divided on the basis of it, but it must be noted that this division has helped our religion to preserve itself successfully against all onslaughts.
