There are men who are conducted by the mode of goodness , others who are under the mode of passion and others who are under the mode of ignorance. The fiercer Armageddon is, the better it serves as purifier of the dross. Armageddon was predicted ages ago, and the abnormalities at the end of Kali Yuga were described in the Puranas , but even keen thinkers underestimated those clear indications.

However, the unusualness of the events does not impress humanity, whose mental confusion was also predicted ages ago. Anyone who knows about the approaching end of Kali Yuga recognizes that it cannot occur without world upheavals. The forces that were particularly powerful during the Black Age must now struggle for survival, and they prefer a general catastrophe to defeat The tension of spatial currents and the discovery of Primal Energy could not be mentioned in the Puranas even though they were intended for the seeking, advanced thinkers.

But both of these conditions have now been manifested in a pronounced form, making the significance of the approaching end of Kali Yuga the more obvious. Is it possible that people do not see how much of the new is entering life? We should not permit the doubting worldlings to proclaim that the dark forces are victorious. That which belongs to Infinity cannot be conquered.

The Thinker wisely encouraged His disciples, and prophesied the victory of the Forces of Light. It is very dangerous that people do not recognize this state, for while it is possible to cure a patient who does not resist treatment, if he struggles against it the beneficial effects of the medicine will be diminished.

But how do you explain to people that their leaders and their teachers are insane? Most people hate the messenger who brings knowledge One who has enjoyed the nectar of its rasa never has any desire for anything else. Bhagavata Purana from Bhagavata Purana, 7. The goal of this literature is exclusive devotional service unto that Supreme Truth. BP Wilson :The Narada or Naradiya Purana is where Narada has described the duties which were observed in Vrihat Kalpa, that is called Naradiya, having twenty five thousand stanzas It is communicated by Narada to the rishis in Naimisharanya , on the Gomati River.

Vishnu Purana is one of the eighteen traditional puranas, which were an important genre of smriti text, and the repository of much of traditional Indian mythology Most of the puranas are highly sectarian as is the Vishnu Purana which is focused on the worship of Vishnu. James G. Among the portions of interest are a cycle of legends of the boyhood deeds of Krishna and Rama. Naradiya Purana[ edit ] The Narada or Naradiya Purana is where Narada has described the duties which were observed in Vrihat Kalpa, that is called Naradiya, having twenty five thousand stanzas Vamana Purana[ edit ] H.

Wilson : Vamana Purana is that in which the four faced Brahma taught the three objects of existence , as subservient to the account of the greatness of Trivikrama , which treats also of the Shiva Kalpa, and which consists of ten thousand stanzas Vamana Purana is that in which the four faced Brahma taught the three objects of existence , as subservient to the account of the greatness of Trivikrama , which treats also of the Shiva Kalpa, and which consists of ten thousand stanzas.

It contains an account of the dwarf incarnation of Vishnu ; but it is related by Pulastya to Narada , and extends to but about seven thousand stanzas.

Padma Purana

Its contents can scarcely establish its claim to the character of a Purana. This story is told in the Mahabharata , with reference to the Matsya as its authority; from which it might be inferred that the Purana was prior to the poem. It is in the form of a dialog between Vishnu and Garuda , the King of Birds Portions of the Garuda Purana are used by some Hindus as funeral liturgy …. The Garuda Purana starts with the details of the afterlife.

Padma Purana

The final part of this text is an appeal to self-knowledge as the key to liberation , going beyond austerities and study of the texts: "The fool, not knowing that the truth is seated in himself, is bewildered by the Shastras,--a foolish goatherd, with the young goat under his arm, peers into the well. There is a supplementary or concluding section called the Brahmottara Khanda, which contains about three thousand more; but there is every reason to conclude that this a distinct and unconnected work The immediate narrator of the Brahma Purana is Lomaharshana, who communicates it to the Rishis or sages assembled at Naimisharanya, as it was originally revealed by Brahma, not to Marichi as the Matsya affirms, but to Daksha , another of the patriarchs: hence the denomination of the Brahma Purana.

It contains fourteen thousand five hundred stanzas. This Purana, as the name implies should be a book of prophesies , foretelling what will be bhavishyat , as the Matsya Purana intimates. It is subsequent to the Itihasas ; to the chief works on grammar , rhetoric , and medicine ; and to the introduction of the Tantrika worship of Devi.

When this latter took place is yet far from determined, but there is every probability that it dates long after the beginning of our era.

The materials of the Agni Purana are however, no doubt of some antiquity. The medicine of Sushruta is considerably older than the ninth century; and the grammar of Panini probably precedes Christianity. The chapters on archery and arms , and on regal administration, are also distinguished by an entirely Hindu character, and must have been written long anterior to the Mohammedan invasion.

So far the Agni Purana is valuable, as embodying and preserving relics of antiquity, although compiled at a more recent date. It is the Purana of manifested Brahmin, which seems to be comprehensive of all topics of the Purana. As creator of the universe we find Radha playing a role that is extremely atypical of her earlier history , the role of a mother. She is called mother of Vishnu , mother of the world, and mother of all.

Brahmananda Purana[ edit ] Brahmananda Purana , has declared in twelve thousand two hundred verses, the magnificence of the egg of Brahma , and in which an account of the future Kalpa is contained, as was revealed by Brahma.

It is usually considered to be in much the same predicament as Skanda , no longer procurable in a collective body, but represented by a variety of Khandas and Mahatmyas, professing to be derived from it.

It contains fifty five thousand stanzas.

The second Purana in the usual lists is always Padma, a very voluminous work, containing according to its own statement, as well as of other authorities fifty-five thousand slokas ; an amount not far from the truth. These are divided amongst five books or Khandas: 1. Srishti Khanda, or section on creation ; 2. The Uttara Khanda, last or supplementary chapter.

There is also current a sixth division, the Kriya Yoga Sara, a treatise on the practice of devotion. Most of the puranas are highly sectarian as is the Shiva Purana , which is one of the longer and larger puranas.

Chaturvedi: Linga Purana , listed eleven in the order of composition , enunciates many rituals in the text with legends and stories that date back to a hoary period. It gives details of Shiva Puja It is said to have been originally composed by Brahma and the primitive Linga is a pillar of radiance , in which Maheswara is present. Horace H. LXVii-LXViii Linga Purana , listed eleven in the order of composition , enunciates many rituals in the text with legends and stories that date back to a hoary period.

It has chapters in the first part and 55 in the second. The language of the Purana is difficult. They ascend to the Lotus Feet of Ishvara, and, changed by the fire, they retain no binding force on the Soul.

As though to make the lesson more impressive, it was given on a field of battle. Arjuna, the warrior-prince, was to vindicate his brother's title, to destroy a usurpor who was oppressing the land; it was his duty as prince, as warrior, to fight for the deliverance of his nation and to restore order and peace.

To make the contest more bitter, loved comrades and friends stood on both sides, wringing his heart with personal anguish, and making a conflict of duties as well as physical strife.

Could he slay those to whom he owed love and duty, and trample on ties of kindred? To break family ties was a sin; to leave the people in cruel bondage was a sin; where was the right way? Justice must be done, else law would be disregarded ; but how slay without sin?

Such is the obvious teaching of this sacred book. But as all the acts of an a Avatara are symbolical, we may pass from the outer to the inner planes, and see in the field of Kurukshetra the battlefield of the Soul, and in the sons of Dritarashtra enemies it meets in its progress; Arjuna becomes the type of the struggling Soul of the disciple, and Sri Krishna is the Logos of the Soul. Thus the teaching of the ancient battlefield gives guidance in all later days, and trains the aspiring Soul in treading the steep and thorny Path that leads to Peace.

To all such Souls in East and West come these Divine lcssons, for the Path is one, though it has many names, and all Souls seek the same goal, though they may not realise their unity. In order to gain something of the precision of the Sanskrit, a few technical but fairly familiar terms have been given in the original; Manas is thus retained, and may be explained for non-Theosophical readers as meaning Mind, both in the lower mental processes in which it is swayed by the senses, by passions and emotions, and in the higher processes of reasoning; Buddhi is the faculty above the ratiocinating mind, and is the Pure Reason, exercising the discriminative faculty of Intuition, of spiritual discernment; if these words are translated in various ways in different passages, as heart, mind, understanding, etc.

The adjectival ending "ic" is used in forming adjectives from Sanskrit nouns, although its use is sometimes a barbarism.

Thus Rajasic is used for Rajasa.Bhuvah are consumed. From his forehead. Another account occurring in the Srstikhanda Ch. To make the contest more bitter, loved comrades and friends stood on both sides, wringing his heart with personal anguish, and making a conflict of duties as well as physical strife. As the potentialities of all objects are inconceivable and inapprehensible, so are those powers of creation of Brahman.

Bhi,rma said You have told in brief the sargas of gods and others from the lord. Chapter 39 tells about the recreation of the earth.

Like the orthodox systems, the heterodox systems like Buddhism and Jainism find a place in them. Puranas are divided into two categories: Mahapuranas and Upapuranas.
