  1. smruti GNaan is obtained by learning from teaching, reading and remembering what has been conveyed by devo and humankind as interpreted and promulgated by devo and mankind.
  2. vedangaa, shaastra, itihaas, puraan, manu-smruti that are promulgated, developed through rationale and experience and transmitted by dev or humankind is smruti. GNaan (knowledge) of creator brhmah and the creation which has been given to the creation by direct revelations by brhmah-self in the minds of brahmaa-dev and the rest of the creations emanating from brahmaa-dev.
  3. A code of laws promulgated and developed by humankind.
  4. Different darshan (philosophy schools) define, express interpret smruti differently as follows:

    4.1 advait vidaanta: smruti GNaan could be valid or invalid depending on the source and content.
    4.1 vishistaa-advait vidaanta: smruti is the gained through perception which is regarded as a valid means of gaining GNaan. smruti is caused by

    - sadrsya = seeing similar things,
    - adrsht = effect of unseen things,
    - cintaa = deep thought process,
    - saahacharya = association with things

    4.2 nyaaya: smruti is GNaan which is attained through perceptual experience of special type. This GNaan may be either yathaarth (true) or ayathaarth (untrue). But neither of this types is pramaa meaning cannot be validated.

    4.3 nyaay-vaiseshik: smruti is a recollection caused by impressions on the mind of things.

    4.4 advait/bhatta miimaasaa: smruti is a cognitive phenomenon consisting of perceptual experience and also recollection.
  5. SHruti GNaan is different from the smruti in that SHruti is GNaan (knowledge) of creator brhmah and the creation which has been given to the creation by direct revelations by brhmah-self in the minds of brahmaa-dev and the rest of the creations emanating from brahmaa-dev. All ved texts are classified as SHruti. See SHruti in SANSKRIT GLOSSARY.
