By Swami Harshananda
Sometimes transliterated as: Hiranyakesi Dharmasutras, HiraNyakeZi Dharmasutras, Hiranyakeshi Dharmasutras
The Hiranyakeśi Dharmasutras forms an integral part of a bigger work, the Hiranyakeśi Kalpasutras (praśnas 26 and 27) and belongs to the Taittirīya branch of Yajurveda. It borrows profusely from the Āpastamba Dharmasutras.
There is a commentary on this work called Ujjvalā by Mahādeva Dikṣita composed sometime earlier than A.D. 200. The contents of this work are practically the same as those of the Āpastamba Dharmasutras.
