Śaunaka has been mentioned as an author of a smṛti by the Manusmrti.[1] His work has not been traced till now. A work called Praṇavakalpa with a commentary of Hemādri[2] is known to have existed. Numerous works are attributed to Śaunaka. However, it is difficult to say whether they are by the same person. Some of these are:

  1. Arkavivahapaddhatv
  2. Ekadandisamnyāsavidhi
  3. Adbhutotpatti-śānti
  4. Jīvacchrāddhaprayoga
  5. Prayoga-pārijāta


  1. Manusmrti 3.16
  2. He lived in 13th century A. D.
