The fiercer Armageddon is, the better it serves as purifier of the dross. Armageddon was predicted ages ago, and the abnormalities at the end of Kali Yuga were described in the Puranas , but even keen thinkers underestimated those clear indications.

However, the unusualness of the events does not impress humanity, whose mental confusion was also predicted ages ago. Anyone who knows about the approaching end of Kali Yuga recognizes that it cannot occur without world upheavals.

The forces that were particularly powerful during the Black Age must now struggle for survival, and they prefer a general catastrophe to defeat The tension of spatial currents and the discovery of Primal Energy could not be mentioned in the Puranas even though they were intended for the seeking, advanced thinkers. But both of these conditions have now been manifested in a pronounced form, making the significance of the approaching end of Kali Yuga the more obvious.

Is it possible that people do not see how much of the new is entering life? We should not permit the doubting worldlings to proclaim that the dark forces are victorious. That which belongs to Infinity cannot be conquered.

The Thinker wisely encouraged His disciples, and prophesied the victory of the Forces of Light. It is very dangerous that people do not recognize this state, for while it is possible to cure a patient who does not resist treatment, if he struggles against it the beneficial effects of the medicine will be diminished. But how do you explain to people that their leaders and their teachers are insane?

Most people hate the messenger who brings knowledge One who has enjoyed the nectar of its rasa never has any desire for anything else. Bhagavata Purana from Bhagavata Purana, 7. The goal of this literature is exclusive devotional service unto that Supreme Truth.

BP Wilson :The Narada or Naradiya Purana is where Narada has described the duties which were observed in Vrihat Kalpa, that is called Naradiya, having twenty five thousand stanzas It is communicated by Narada to the rishis in Naimisharanya , on the Gomati River. Vishnu Purana is one of the eighteen traditional puranas, which were an important genre of smriti text, and the repository of much of traditional Indian mythology Most of the puranas are highly sectarian as is the Vishnu Purana which is focused on the worship of Vishnu.

James G. Among the portions of interest are a cycle of legends of the boyhood deeds of Krishna and Rama. Naradiya Purana[ edit ] The Narada or Naradiya Purana is where Narada has described the duties which were observed in Vrihat Kalpa, that is called Naradiya, having twenty five thousand stanzas Vamana Purana[ edit ] H. Wilson : Vamana Purana is that in which the four faced Brahma taught the three objects of existence , as subservient to the account of the greatness of Trivikrama , which treats also of the Shiva Kalpa, and which consists of ten thousand stanzas Vamana Purana is that in which the four faced Brahma taught the three objects of existence , as subservient to the account of the greatness of Trivikrama , which treats also of the Shiva Kalpa, and which consists of ten thousand stanzas.

It contains an account of the dwarf incarnation of Vishnu ; but it is related by Pulastya to Narada , and extends to but about seven thousand stanzas. Its contents can scarcely establish its claim to the character of a Purana. This story is told in the Mahabharata , with reference to the Matsya as its authority; from which it might be inferred that the Purana was prior to the poem. It is in the form of a dialog between Vishnu and Garuda , the King of Birds Portions of the Garuda Purana are used by some Hindus as funeral liturgy ….

The Garuda Purana starts with the details of the afterlife. The final part of this text is an appeal to self-knowledge as the key to liberation , going beyond austerities and study of the texts: "The fool, not knowing that the truth is seated in himself, is bewildered by the Shastras,--a foolish goatherd, with the young goat under his arm, peers into the well. There is a supplementary or concluding section called the Brahmottara Khanda, which contains about three thousand more; but there is every reason to conclude that this a distinct and unconnected work The immediate narrator of the Brahma Purana is Lomaharshana, who communicates it to the Rishis or sages assembled at Naimisharanya, as it was originally revealed by Brahma, not to Marichi as the Matsya affirms, but to Daksha , another of the patriarchs: hence the denomination of the Brahma Purana.

It contains fourteen thousand five hundred stanzas. This Purana, as the name implies should be a book of prophesies , foretelling what will be bhavishyat , as the Matsya Purana intimates. It is subsequent to the Itihasas ; to the chief works on grammar , rhetoric , and medicine ; and to the introduction of the Tantrika worship of Devi. When this latter took place is yet far from determined, but there is every probability that it dates long after the beginning of our era.

The materials of the Agni Purana are however, no doubt of some antiquity. The medicine of Sushruta is considerably older than the ninth century; and the grammar of Panini probably precedes Christianity. Samkhya Prakrti. He creates this disposition in me. He, the Creator of the worlds, the Knower of their essential nature, conversant with Yoga doctrines , resorting to the concentration of mind created all immobile and mobile beings.

Being desirous of knowing the story of the Purana I submit myself to Him-the unborn, the creator of everything, the Lord of souls, the Observer of the worlds, and the Supreme Ruler. Jatukarnya: "The Jatukarnyas were a Vasistha gotra Matsya This name is a patronymic, and so there were several of the name.

Jatukarnya or Jatukarna is said to have taught Vyasa the Veda Vayu 1. A manvantara is said to be the period of a Manu and the gods Padma, Srs1i-khanda 3. The curse pronounced by Bhrgu on Visnu is attributed to different causes in Devi Bhagavata 4.

S akti : Eldest son of Vasistha and Arundhati. Adrsyanti was his wife Bhagavata 4. Adi He defeated Visvamitra in a sacrifice the periods of various Manus is similar to that in the period of Svayambhuva i. The 'dissolution-and-recreation' of the beings conceived to be of three types is called Naimittika, Prakrtika, and Atyantika.

Drought and the terrible fire of destruction from the sun, and the clouds causing general inundation, and also the night of the Highest Lord are described. The characteristic mark of the period intervening between the end of one Yuga and the commencement of another is described and especially that of Brahma; also the description of the beings and seven worlds is given in it. I shall describe here i. It contains the secondary creation of Brahma and the description of the total destruction; and the destruction of even the great beings in every Kalpa.

Having perceived after proper calculation I shall describe the evanescence of even Brahma, and also the depravity of the enjoyments and the painfulness of the worldly existence. The Purina describes how salvation is difficult to attain, and how faults are noticed through detachment and how Reality, discarding the manifest and unmanifest, remains in Brahman. The Purana tells how the untinged one called Virupa, after realising the diversity, and having gone beyond the three miseries is happy and then, remains in it i e.

A full and proper description of the proof for such statements is given here. In it lit. It describes The origin of Vasistha; also the birth of Saktil; his destruction by Kalmasapada, the son of Sudasa, through the act of Vivamitra; the birth of Parasara the Lord from Adiyanti; also how Vyasa was born of the daughter of the Pitrs, and how Suka was born; also of his intelligent son; how Paraara was very much hated by Vivamitra; how fire prepared by Vasistha with a desire to kill Vivamitra was destroyed by intelligent Kanva-the Lord of the brahmanas and non-brahmanas-desiring the welfare of Vivamitra, to reconcile the two sages.

How Vyasa, the Lord, favouring all, divided one Veda of four quarters into four parts; how his pupils and their pupils again divided the Veda into various branches; how the Lord i. Vyasa was asked by the best sages at Prayaga and how those sages longing for Dharma, were advised by Krsna Dvaipayana Vyasa. So also is told the best course of the world of i. The narration or the listening to and especially the assimilation ofthis Purana is blessed, leads to fame, prolongs life and destroys all sins.

To the brahrnanas Si to declared in detail and in due order this Purana which was formerly narrated by Brahma. There is no doubt that he, who, with his senses subdued, would study with proper understanding even a part of this, has studied the entire Purina. He, who knows the four Vedas, along with the Angas i. One should nourish Veda with Itihasa and Puranas. Veda, thinking 'he would deceive me', is afraid of a person of little learning. Jamadagni again endowed Visvamitra with power.

Then Visvamitra burnt him with the help of Saudasa. At the time of his death Adrsyaeti was carrying. She gave birth to the celebrated Parasara. In the present Manvantara the name of the 26th Vyasa is Sakti. Matsya iii.

And having studied even one chapter of this Purana narrated by Brahma himself, one would be free from calamities even after having met with them and would get the desired course.

It tells about the old tradition; so it is called Purina. He who knows its derivation is absolved of all sins. The sages said to the Suta: How did the revered sage Pulastya, Brahma's mindborn son, whose sight is difficult to be obtained, come in contact with Bhisma? It is a a great wonder, 0 Suta, 0 highly intelligent one.

Tell us how that great sage was propitiated by that ksatriya i. What kind of penance or what other religious observances did he practise by which that brahmanic sage talked to him in such a way that he explained to him a section or half a section or the entire Purana? We are ready to listen to it. Suta Said Where the Ganges, the benefactress of the good, the purifier of the world, having broken open the mountain, flowed forth, there-at the great sacred place- named Gangadvara, Bhisma, devoted to the forefathers, desirous of listening to the Purana , remained, for a very long time in the religious observances of i.

God Brahma was pleased with the noble one who gratified the forefathers and gods with selfrecitation, and who subdued himself. Brahma said to his son Pulastya, the best among the sages: "Such as you are, ward off from penance that brave Devavrata Bhisma, a descendant of the Kuru-family, and tell him the reason for doing so.

The blessed one has remained there meditating upon his forefathers. What desire his mind has, fulfil it; do not delay. Having heard the words of Brahma, Pulastya, the best of the sages, having come to Gangedvara, said these words to Bhisma: "Welfare to you; ask for whatever boon is in your mind i. I, who am sent by Brahma, will grant you your desired boons. Bhisma too, having heard those words pleasing to the ears, opening his eyes and seeing Pulastya standing before him, and having saluted the best sage with the eight parts of his body and the entire body touching the earth, and thus bending, said: And I have obtained the fruit of my penance since I have seen the venerable one, the granter of the boon, who has especially arrived at the river-bank.

I have made ready this comfortable seat; please be seated. Having heard these words of Bhisma, of unlimited lustre the revered sage Pulastya, the son of Brahma, sat on the seat. Being pleased with him of good behaviour and being delighted the revered one liked the seat with the water offered for washing the feet and the contents of the offering-vessel. Pulastya said: You are a truthful munificent king, true to your word, modest, friendly, of a forgiving nature, and powerful in controlling the enemies.

You honour those who deserve honour. You are intelligent, hospitable to the brahmanas and kind towards the good. Tell me, 0 blessed one, what I should tell you.

Akaa has the quality of sound; Bhutadil covered the sky; Aksaa, being effected, created the quality of touch. This Vayu is indeed powerful; touch is regarded to be its quality. Akasa, having sound as its quality, covered the quality of touch. From that Vayu being effected, created the quality of form: that arising from Vayu is of the form of lustre; it is said to be having form as its quality. Vayu, of the nature of touch, covered lustre having the quality of form; lustre too, being effected created the quality of water.

The quality of form covered the water arising out of it. The water being effected, created the quality of odour. From it comes into being the aggregate i. Odour is regarded as its quality; the sense-organs are said to be arising from Tejas.

The ten of sense and action organs are products of the Sattvika Vaikarika Ahatinkara. Here i. The sense-organs are said to be Vaikarika. They are: Skin, eye, nose, tongue, and ear is the fifth of these. The function of these is said to be the apprehension of sound etc.

The other are: speech, hands, feet, anus, and the fifth of these is the sex-organ. The characteristics of these in reverse order are: discharge, manual work, movement and speech.

Akasa, air, fire, water and earth are, 0 brave one, endowed with the successive qualities of sound etc. Then being of diverse strength, and separated, they were unable to procreate without wholly coming together. Having come together, by mutual contact and inter-dependence, having the target of one aggregate, completely being united, by being controlled by the Purusa, and by Bhisma said: When did revered Visnu effect the preservation? How was Rudra creaetd?

How were the earth, the sky, these oceans, the islands, the mountains, the villages, the forests and the cities created by him? Tell me how i.

He, the best among the best, the greatest, the supreme spirit-Brahma-without any form or complexion, destitute of any attribute, decay or destruction, change, increase or birth, and also void of all qualities, alone shines. He is regarded to be living equally everywhere, and is said to be matchless. The learned declare him to manifest himself in the form of Brahma. Having saluted him, the mysterious, supreme, eternal, unborn, inexhaustible, immutable one, that has remained in the form of time, I shall tell you, how having first risen from the lotus-bed, the lord of the world brought the creation.

Sattvika, Rajasa and Tamasa also, came out, endowed with the marks of the three constituents. From it arose the five elements and organs of sense, along with the organs of action. That egg gradually manifested is like a waterbubble. In it, Brahma himself, whose form is invisible, who is Janardana of a visible form, remains in the form of Brahman.

Of him, the great-souled one, Meru was the foetus, the other mountains were the outer skin of the embryo and oceans were the foetus- fluid. In that egg, 0 warrior, there were the islands, seas, and and the whole universe with the luminaries, with gods, demons and human beings.

The egg has water, fire, air and ether Akaa concealed within and is, from outside, covered by Aharhkara and by the ten powers' i. The egg is endowed with all these covers and all beings as the coconut seed is covered by external scabbards. Brahma himself proceeds towards the creation of the world, and protects the creation yuga after yuga, as long as the kalpa is regulated.

That god Janardana, all alone, enjoying pleasure, possessing virtues, of unlimited valour now gets an appel ation. At the end of the kalpa, 0 best of princes, he increases darkness and takes up a terrible form, and being very ferocious, eats up all beings; and, when the world becomes but one ocean, he, having eaten up all beings, and having assumed his own full form, sleeps on the bed of the serpent.

Being awake, he, taking up the form of Brahma effects the creation. For creating, maintaining and destroying the world he takes up respectively the forms of Brahma, Visnu and Siva.

The creator creates himself, and Visnu protects the world that is to be protected, and the lord himself, the withdrawer, is withdrawn into himself. Since he, the immutable one of a universal form, is 1.

Guna: the five subtle organs of perception, five subtle organs of action and the mind are the eleven laktis or gunas of Ahamkara.

He-having the entire world as his form through such states as Brahman etc. How is it possible for Brahman, the quality-less, unlimited, pure and great, to be the author of the creation etc.? Pulastya said 2. As the potentialities of all objects are inconceivable and inapprehensible, so are those powers of creation of Brahman.

The wise one who is born is only secondarily described to be eternal; and by his own measure his life-span is said to be a hundred years. Thirty kalds make one kastha also called nimisa , or the period called muhurta. Muhurtas equalling that number i. As many i. With six of them an ayana is formed and a year has two such ayanas, viz. Daksina and Uttara. The dakrinayana is the night of the gods and the uttardyana is their day. The set of four called Krta, Treta etc. Learn from me their yugas division: Those acquainted with the past say that the number of a thousand divine years in the Krta and other yugas is respectively four, three, two and one.

A period called sandhya of equal number of hundred years corresponding to thousandsthe number of years of each yuga is said to precede it i. That period coming immediately after a yuga and equal to the period of a Sandhya is called Sandhyam. The period between a Sandhya and Sandhyamta is to be known as a yuga called Krta, Treta etc. There are fourteen Manus during one day of Brahma.

Listen to the measure of their period : 0 prince the seven sages, Indra, Manu and his sons are created at one and the same time, and are also withdrawn as before i. The period of Manu and gods is called Manvantara, and is enumerated to form seventyone caturyugas i. This span, 0 highly intelligent one, is said to be equal to eight lakhs and fiftytwo thousand divine years. According to the calculation, thirty crores, sixtyseven million and twenty thousand human years without any addition is the number of years in a Manvantara.

The day of Brahma is fourteen times this period. At the end of it i. At that time all the three worlds like Bhuh, Bhuvah are consumed. Residents of the Mahas world, afflicted by tormentation, go to the world of i. When the three worlds just become one ocean, Brahma, the lord of the world, the best among those who know Brahman, increased with the nourishment of the worlds, and being meditated upon by the yogins remaining in the Jana-world lies on the bed of a serpent.

At the end of the night which is of the same measure as the day he again brings about the creation. Such is the year of Brahma and likewise are his hundred years. Long is the life-span of that great one, viz.

Only one Parardha half of the span has rolled by, 0 sinless one. At the end of it there was the great Kalpa known as Padma.

Of the second Pardrdha, 0 king, this present Kalpa called ITaraha is conceived to be the first one. Bhisma said Tell me, 0 great, sage, how this Brahma, called Narayana, created all the beings at the beginning of the Kalpa. Pulastya spoke 25b Brahma, the lord, beginningless, cause of everything, who had slept at night, at the end of the bygone Kalpa, got up, with increased vitality, saw the world void; being in the water and noticing the earth plunged in the flood of water, and after a thought desiring to take it and comprehending up the form of Visnu in order to carry off the earth he entered other forms like those of Matsya, Kurma and Varaha.

Having resorted to the form of Vedic Sacrifice, the Creator, of a firm mind, the soul of all and the highest soul, remained firm for the stability of the world. Then the sustainer of the earth entered the water in the ocean; then the goddess Earth seeing him who had come from the nether region, reverential through devotion, bowing down, praised him.

The Earth said Salutation to you, the all-existing one; salutation to you, the highest soul; lift me today from this ocean ; formerly I have risen from you. Salution to you, 0 highest soul; salutation to you, 0 soul of man.

Salutation to you who are the manifest form of Pradhana the Satnkhya Prakrti , and who are the destroyer. You are the creator, the protector and the destroyer of all the beings; you, 0 Govinda, the highest Brahma, who, at the the beginning of the creation take the form of Visnu and Rudra, having devoured everything when the world has just become one ocean, lie in it being meditated upon by the wise.

Nobody knows that which is your highest form. The residents of heaven worship that form of yours which you take in your incarnations. Those desirous of salvation have attained it after having propitiated you, the highest Brahman. For, who would attain salvation without propitiating Vasudeva? All that form which can be mentally grasped, the external form that can be perceived by eyes etc.

I am full of you; you are my support; you have created me and I have sought your refuge. Then the great boar, resembling a lotus-leaf, and having eyes like full-blown lotuses, having lifted the earth from the ocean with is fang, rose like a great blue mountain. The water of the ocean struck by his breath when he rose, again made the sinless sages like Sanandana, who had resorted to the Jana world, the abode of purity.

When the base of the earth was struck by his hoof, the water moved on, and the row of clouds hurled by his breath moved all around, making a continuous thundering sound.

The sages that were between the hair on his body praised the great boar tossing his body of Veda when, he, with his sides wet, came out of the ocean after having rent the earth. You; are the cause of the creation, sustenance and destruction; you are the ruler, and you, and none else, are the place which is the highest. The Vedas are at your feet, your tusk is the tying post, sacrifices are in your fangs, and the sacred texts in your mouth.

Your tongue is fire, your hair the sacred darbha grass. It is the greatness of you alone by which the movable and the immovable are pervaded. The ignorant ones, who look upon this world, of the form of knowledge, to be true, wander in the flood of darkness; but 0 lord, the wise ones of pure heart see the entire world, your form, to be of the nature of knowledge. You are enhanced with energy, 0 lord Govind. Lift up this earth for the well-being of the world ; bring about the good of the world.

The highest soul, who had held the earth, being thus praised, put it in the great ocean. The earth remained over it like a boat in a stream of water. The beginningless supreme being, then having flattened the earth, piled the mountains on it according to its divisions. Then having accurately divided the earth into seven divisions, he conceived the four worlds Bhuh etc.

This is exactly what was formerly shown to Brahma by Visnu. The god of gods who was pleased said to Visnu I shall create the world. Visnu, the eminent one, being thus addressed by Brahma went from that place and created gods and others. From him spontaneous creation full of darkness proceeded. From the great one, who did not ponder, five kinds of creation stood apart: Tamas, Aloha, Mahdmoha, Tamisra, Andha. It was dark from within and without, and of the form of i.

This is called Mukhya Sarga as the Nagas are said to be pre-eminent in it. Seeing that ineffective creation the lord thought of another creation. From him, who was pondering, the creation called Tiryak-srotas stood out. As the movement of the animals other than man was horizontal with their faces turned to the ground the creation is said to be Tiryak-srotas.

Fifth is the Anugraha Sarga arranged in four ways: The pitrs looking upon him as their father were born from that body of him. First one is the creation of Mahat.

Then he took up another. The fourth one is Mukhya sarga. Eighth is the Anugraha sarga. Then he took up another body full of activity only.

They were created by Btahma creating the world and are known to be manasa. Then follows the creation of the Arvdk-srotas moving with their faces turned to the ground. Then comes the sixth one of the Urdhva-srotas known as Deva-sarga. He abandoned that body too. The immovables are known to be Mukhya. That sarga which is described as Tiryak-srotas is also called Tiryak-yonya.

The third one. Thus this is i. These nine creations of Prajapati. Then he abandoned that wicked body full of vice only. Then desiring to create the group of four. I desire to hear about them from you in detail. It is both virtuous and vicious. The lord having created the pitrs gave up that body too. Then resorting to another body. Created due to their good and bad actions.

Therefore they are full of grief and repeat the same things over and over again. Therefore human beings are powerful when the light comes on i. These five are Vaikrrta sargas i. What else do you want to hear about the lord of the world-the creator? They again do not know the past and the present. When he was thinking thus. That body became light. The sixth sarga creation is said to be of the beings and the like. That body. Pulastya said 84b All of them have possessions.

They are rich in brilliance. Then he took up another body full of virtue only. Since they move on the lower side. Other three are known to be Prdkrta natural. Prajapati quickly gave up that former body also. Then from Prajapati free and wicked souls were born. Inspired by cruelty and kindness.

From his mouth facing the west he created samans. From his mouth facing the south he created the Tajus-formulae. Jagati metre. Having created gods. They are known as serpents sarpa on account of their creeping sarpana.

Bhisma said Brahma having duly created animals and herbs. From his first mouth i. He created sheep from his chest. He created cows and buffaloes from his belly. The hairs of the creator who was very much afraid of them fell off. Vairupa and Atiraja.

These deformed beings desiring to eat him up. From his mouth facing the north. Those beings being again and again created. From i. Impelled by the respective capacity of them.

He also gave names to the sages as reported in the Vedas. Then Brahma had a sneeze. While sucking the earth. From the limbs of his body high and low animals were created. At the beginning of the kalpa. Learn from me the wild ones: Beasts of prey. Then the angry creator created fearful. Desirous of creation. The creator.

Then Gandharvas. Tell me 0 great sage. Brhatsama and Uktha. Trictubh metre. Brahma did all this for the accomplishment of sacrifice. They are accomplished by good human beings always engaged in good acts. There are fourteen plants used for sacrifice and found in a village and a forest. From it. From his chest sprang up those who were enhanced with activity and others and from his thigh those who were enhanced with activity and ignorance.

When Hari is well-settled in their pure minds and hearts. Brahma then created from his feet other beings. After shunning cold etc. Then they put up forts: Then that place of the nature of the Supreme Spirit is called the abode of Virinca. Gods are satisfied by sacrifice. All those are dominated by ignorance. Along with the sacrifice they are also a great cause of the nourishment of beings.

Rice with barley. When all of them become exhausted and sin increases. So also markataka grain. Pulastya spoke These fourteen plants are said to be found in a village and a forest. Then the natural superhuman power does not quite arise in them. So also for the accomplishment of a sacrifice they are an excellent means. Tamas darkness. In the Purana they are determined to be the nine Brahmas.

That Prajapati Ruci accepted her i. Thus the beings-immovable and movable-were created. All those whom I have enumerated before sprang up: First he gave Prasuti in marriage to Daksa and Akflti to Ruci. Kalasutra and Avicimat. All of them were having knowledge. When all these created beings of that intelligent one increased. From that couple. The flame from the anger of Brahma was capable of burning all the three worlds.

Saying so.


For those who condemn the Vedas and create obstacles in the performance of sacrifices and who give up their duties. Then Brahma appointed the selfexistent one. The planets like the moon and the sun go and come. They were called Yama-devas. Kratu and Angiras also. When they were thus indifferent to the creation of the world. Daksa and Atri.

The Padma Purana Part 1 Nag Publishers

That Manu. From that supreme being. From his wrath the series of burning flames arose. From the limbs of the intelligent one. That place which is said to be of i. Priyavrata and Uttanapada. He also divided himself into many forms black and white. Twelve sons were born to Daksina from Yajfia. Then from him who meditated.


Brahma then vanished. Prasuti and Akuti. The place of i. That place which is said to be of the Seven Sages is also said to be of i. Thus addressed. Sanandana and others who were formerly created by the creator did not take interest in the worlds.

From his forehead. He divided the male form into ten and one. Brahma entertained great anger capable of burning the three worlds. Adharma's wife was Himsa. Vapu gave birth to a son. They constantly become the cause of the destruction of the world. Laksmi to Bala. I have heard that Laksmi was born in the white ocean. Medha to Sruta. Naya and Vinaya. All these are said to be accompanied by Duhkha and are characterised by unrighteousness.

Lord Bhava. From the two Maya brought forth Mrtyu. I shall now tell you the creation of Rudra as brought about by Brahma. That Sat! The remaining eleven. How did you say that she was born of Khyati from Bhrgu? Dharma's grandson from Kama.

The creator said to Rudra called Bhava. So the lord gave him seven other names. Khyati and others. Sand to Ksema. Nandi gave birth to Harsa. In the same way. Sraddha gave birth to a son. Daksa begot twentyfour daughters on Prasuti.

Do not weep. Hear froir me their correct names. Out of pity. Sati and Sambhuti. Anrta and Nikrti were born Bhaya and Naraka. Brahma said: They do not have wives or sons.

How did the auspicious daughter of Daksa give up her body? And how was she conceived by Mena and born as Uma? Kriya to Dancla. Tusti also gave birth to Santosa. From the two i. Dhrti to Niyama. From Mrtyu were born Vyadhi.

Daityas and Danavas. To the gods he said: Taking from his own head that garland with intoxicating bees hovering over it. There it shone like Ganges on Kailasa.

Taking that garland. The elephant. Bringing all herbs and putting them into the Milky Ocean. I shall tell you what should be done by you.

I shall nourish you with strength. I have heard about this connection of Sri with Bhrgu and Khyati from Brahma. Atri's son. Being correctly informed by gods. I shall place it in the mass of my matted hair'. So exhibiting my good fortune. When thus the three worlds had become void of affluence and deprived of energy.

With them he went to the northern shore of the white ocean. Brahma likewise spoke to them. Why did the lord of lords take Himalaya's daughter as his wife? And why did he have hostility with Daksa? May the revered one tell this to me.

Sacrifices were not performed.

I shall. Without you. Pulastya said 4. Since you threw the garland given by me on the earth. Since then these three worlds. Being pleased by Indra's prostrations. Talking to the Daityas in an appeasing manner about that operation of churning the ocean he said to them "Here you will share the fruit equally. He solicited her for it saying: Taking it. Thus the Vidyadhari was asked by him. Then Durvasas. I shall go somewhere else'. All those gods thus addressed by the lord of gods.

Having gone there. The Daityas defeated gods. Mahadeva took and drank that poison at his will. Brahma agreed to his being the ornament of Hara. By it all gods and demons with other deities were afflicted.

Padma Purana 1.1.
