Agni Puran' is a very old Puran. There is description of the prayer and worship of sun and trinity - Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. Many scholars have said it to be the encyclopaedia of Indian culture on account of the subjects and topics covered in it. This Puran is a storehouse of a variety of experiences related with man's life.
The Puran-like visage of Lord Vishnu has been described in Padm Puran. In that, the eighteen Purans have been said to be the 18 parts of the Lord's body. According to that Puran- like description, 'Agni Puran' has been said to be the left feet of Lord Vishnu. The orator of this Puran is lord of Fire (Agnidev); therefore it is called Agni Puran'. First of all, lord of Fire (Agnidev) narrated this Puran to Maharshi Vashishtha. All the disciplines of knowledge have been incorporated in this Puran in spite of being too brief. From this viewpoint it becomes even more special and important.
Number of Verses and Sections
