It is a law book written by Yogi Vigyaneshwara. According to B. D. Basu, he serves as the principal authority in law even before the codification of Hindu law in Modern period. B. D. Basu argues that he was associated with King Bhoja. However, A. L. Basham had specifically written that he was a jurist at the court of Chalukya King Vikramadity VI (1075-1127). B. D. Basu translated a treatise of Vigyaneshwara for the British government wherein he states that Vigyaneshwara was son of Upadhyaya Bharavaja Padmanabhabhatta.
