Puranas are known as the fifth Veda' in Indian culture. The aim of Puranas is to acquaint the general mass with the teachings and philosophy of the Veda which are to be adopted as the principle and thus achieve the goal of life. As Vedavyasa says: “itihasa-pura?abhya? vedam samupabrmhayet."2 So, for the complete study of the Veda, Puranas are indispensable Vedic study was confined to a limited intellectual group. But, the Puranas were open to all. Various Puranas provide us valu- able information about the social religious and cultural life of ancient and medieval India. It is noteworthy that despite exag- gerations, myths and legends, some of these works throw con- siderable light on the early political history of India.
