Description
Preface

There is a general impression that he Puranas give an account of mythical Origin of the Universe rituals to be performed in favor of deities and manes description of the deities particularly Visnu and Siva the genealogies of the sages and kings. In view of this there are considered more as theological than secular. However the secular topics like Rajadharma i.e. Political Science Vyavahara i.e. judical administratin sadacara i.e. guidelines for good life ethics Gandharvavidya Musicology, Ratnapariksa Gemmology Ayurveda Indian Medical Science are delineated in the Puranas.

This volume is intended to draw the attention of the readers of the Puranas to this aspect. There is also a graphic presentation of Bharatvarsa. The mountains rivers, different regions tribes and civilized communities residing in different parts of Bharatavarsa are described. This description of Bharatavarsa broadly agrees with the present day India. It is fascinating to know that there is a continuity of the languages the social life and culture of India. Attention of the readers is drawn to this aspect of the puranas.

We hope this volume will give a new perspective about the study of the Puranas and our reader will appreciate it.
