Brahmanda Purana deals with the origin of the universe as told by Brahma. In the beginning there was a golden egg and the prapanca (universe with its activities) was formed out of it. Portions of Adhyatma Ramayana, references to Radha and Krishna and the incarnation of Parasurama are included in this. This book contains twelve thousand verses and it is believed to be uttama (best) to give this book as a gift to a Brahmin .The Brahmanda Purana describes threefold creation; primary, secondary and primary-secondary, the Kalpa and Manvantara ages and their duration, geographical division of the seven continents, their countries, towns and villages, oceans and rivers, lakes and mountains, inhabitants and other natural features such as climate and vegetation which give personality to the regions and make them identifiable, the genealogies of Sages, the dynasties of rulers and the legends of Pitas and their propitiation, the conflict between Karttikeya, King of Hihayas and Bhargava Parasurama.. Subsidiary episodes as that of Sagara, the lineage of Vaivasvata Manu and the dissolution of universe, the ultimate annihilation. The Purana concludes with the episode of Goddess Lalitha in 40 chapters.
