Purans

THE NUMBER OF PURANS

In the beginning of the universe, Brahmaji had created one Puran only. Comprising one billion verses (shlokas), this Puran was very voluminous and tough. Maharshi Vedvyas divided this huge Puran into eighteen sections with the sole idea of popularizing the knowledge and ancient discourse depicted in Puran by making it simple and easy for the common man. The total number of verses (shlokas) in these Purans is four lacs. All the eighteen Purans written by Maharshi Vedvyas and the number of shlokas in it are as hereunder:

According to one belief, Lord Vishnu appears in the form of Vyas in every Dwapar of all the manvantars and creates these eighteen Purans for the well-being of the mankind. By reading and listening to these eighteen Purans, even a sinful man becomes sinless and sacred. Why are the Purans eighteen in number?

1. Anima, Laghima, Praapti, Praakaamya, Mahima, Siddhi, Eishitva or Vashitva, Sarvakaamaavasaita, Sarvagyatva, Doorshravan, Shrishti, Parkaaypraveshan, Vaaksiddhi, Kalpvrikshatva, Sanhaarkaransamarthya, Bhavana, Amarta, Sarvanyaykatva - these are said to be the eighteen achievements (Siddhis).

2. In the Sankhya philosophy—Purush (male), Prakriti (nature), mind, five original elements (earth, water, air, fire, and sky), five senses (ear, skin, eye, nose, and tongue), and five functional senses (karmendriyan) (wak, Paani, Paad, Payu, and Upasth) - these eighteen elements have been described.

3. Six Vedangs, four Vedas, Meemansa, Nyayashashtra, Puran, Dharmashashtra (Theology), Arthshashtra (Economics), Ayurved, Dhanurved (Archery), and Gandharvaved - these are the eighteen discipline of studies.

4. One year (Sanvatsar), five seasons, and twelve months - these constitute the eighteen distinctions of period.

5. The total number of chapters in Shrimad Bhagwat Geeta is eighteen.

6. There are a total of eighteen thousand verses (shlokas) in Shrimad Bhagawat.
