Puranas are stories of lore that have existed from time immemorial and have glorified various Hindu Gods and Goddesses. Puranas usually give prominence to one specific God or Goddess and use various narrative examples that reinforce moral and spiritual values.
It is popularly believed that Vyasa (the narrator of the Mahabharata), is the compiler of the Puranas. However, historical evidence shows that the texts were probably written all over India. Many of the puranas have common ideas and considering that telecommunication systems and modern transportation simply did not exist, it is amazing that there seems to have been influence of one purana over another.
This page would from time to time showcase some of the stories from the puranas and the following are the posts relating to Puranas.
[The word ‘Kshaya’ means dissipating or reducing; hence the word ‘Akshaya’ broadly means perennial abundance. Purification, meditation, reflection and intention are prime today as the Sun and The Moon are exalted on Akshaya Tritiya. The Sun and the Moon are considered to be the eyes of the Lord. Since the sun and Moon are in exalted positions the lords eyes are fully open on Akshaya thrithiya day, hence His kataksha falls fully on all of us on that day. A special energy from Mahavishnu is available on this day. This energy can help us in achieving our resolutions and goals. We can also make resolutions for our Spiritual as well as our material goals. This is because #Vairagya is not renouncing or negating life but it is non-attachment. ]

“Devaki has never looked like this before. It seems to me this strange glow in her is there because of the child that is to be born. I think it is Narayana who is to be born and that is why she looks so very beautiful. I must take proper precautions lest he should do what he was promised to do! I do not want to die. I could kill her now. But then she is a woman; she is my sister and she is with the child. Each killing in itself is an unforgivable crime and the world will condemn me if I kill her now. All my fame and all my wealth and even my life-span will suffer because of this sin. Is it not the fact that a man who lives in constant association with terrible deeds is but a walking corps? When he is alive people will curse him and when he dies he will go to the hell, which goes by the name of Andhatmas.
