The List of Hindu Puranas

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Puranas which we get in the present forms are not devoid of interpolation or fraudulent change of Slokas, and it appears that corruption inserted into the Text by Western Indologist. For example, in case of Ramayana, Sage Valmiki wrote only six Kandam(Parts) and some unknown persons wrote Uttar kandam (seventh part).

Puran means the story of past ages. They are not History in the real sense but they are the repositories of old stories and collection of multiple subjects. Puranas are helpful to know past and supplementary to know Dharma. Nonetheless, Vedas are the only source of Valid Knowledge in connection with Sabda Pramana. Vedas are the only Holy and sacred books of the Sanatan Dharma. Manu Samhita supports this view.

The Puranas which we get in the present forms are not devoid of interpolation or fraudulent change of Slokas, and it appears that corruption inserted into the Text by Western Indologist. For example, in case of Ramayana, Sage Valmiki wrote only six Kandam(Parts) and some unknown persons wrote Uttar kandam (seventh part). Western Indologists put these together as a one Book to prove that Lord Rama was against Dalits and Women. The story of Rama finished with the coronation of Ram. Bhavishya Purāṇam has been completely changed and so many obscure stories have been placed, including the story of Akbar and Muhammad in some low-quality Edition. They are inserted not more than 200years.

Having said so in the foregoing paragraphs, now we don’t have any original Purana written by Vyasa Deva or recited by his disciple Vaisampayana. Vishnu Puran maintains some originality otherwise all Texts available to us in the name of Purana are Fake documents. Till we can use them as much as the support a rational interpretation but with caution, we must not use them for interpretation of Sanatan Dharma or the interpret Holy Vedas.

On Life after Death: Carl Gustav Jung 1934

Wed Apr 22 , 2020
Parapsychology holds it to be a scientifically valid proof of an afterlife that the dead manifest themselves—either as ghosts, or through a medium—and communicate things which they alone could possibly know. But even though there do exist such well-documented cases, the question remains whether the ghost or the voice is identical with the dead person or is a psychic projection, and whether the things said really derive from the deceased or from knowledge which may be present in the unconscious.
