About the Book

The Bhavisya Purana is one of the eighteen major Puranas. The specific appeal of This Purana is that it narrates incidents that will occur in the future , as well as accounts that happened in the distant Past.

In the first volume of Bhavisya Purana there are no future predictions, but as in all the Puranas, there is much of great interest.

In this Volume there is an elaborate exposition of the auspicious and inauspicious characteristics of men and women,

and in the course of this Description, there is much information on Vedic physiognomy.

This Volume also contains the beginning of an elaborate description of the significance of each of the days of the fortnight, beginning with the first, or pratipada. And, of course, there are stories to illustrate whatever is being explained and in this volume, there is the very interesting story of how lord Brahma's fifth head was severed, and for what reason.

The vedic understanding is that the gross body of a living entity is manifested according to the condition of the subtle body, or mind.

Thus, the condition of one's gross body indicates the previous mentality of a person, and this Process is carried on forms one moment to the next. Why does someone have particular bodily features, and what to do they indicate?

This is the subtle science that is explained in this volume of the Bhavisya Purana.
