Quantity:

In the list of the eighteen Mahapuranas, the Linga Purana is invariably listed as number eleven. But it does not mean that the Linga Purana was eleventh in the order of composition. There are many rituals in the text and these tend to indicate that the Linga Purana was composed much earlier because it contains many legends and stories that date back to much hoary a period.

Even though the Linga Purana doesn’t conform strictly to the conditions laid down for a Purana to be a Mahapurana. It gives the details of Shiva-pooja and Yoga etc in a most elaborate manner, not found even in the Shiva Purana. It is considered to be a Tamasika Purana. It is divided into two parts-the first part is said to be Poorva Bhaga and the other, Uttara Bhaga. There are one hundred and eighty chapters (Adhyaya) in the first part and fifty five in the subsequent part.

Table of Contents:

  • Preface
  • Prologue
  • Yoga
  • A Tussle Between Brahma and Vishnu
  • The Ritual Worship of Lord Shiva
  • The Tale of Sage Dadheechi

  • The Yugas and the time Division

  • The Process of Normal Creation
  • The Family of the great Sage Parashara
