The Puranas have inspired and sustained the Hindu culture over the millennia. These scriptures have created, strengthened and preserved a great tradition of spirituality. Neither a school of religio-philosophical thought nor any socio-religious movements of the subsequent period of history of India has remained untouched by their influence.
This Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Puranas in five volumes offers comprehensive information on more than one thousand Puranic themes and on many aspects of the Puranas which play a prominent role in Indian religio-cultural, social and philosophical tradition.
