Lord Vishnu and the Creation
The Vishnu Purana is part of a series of eighteen sacred Hindu texts known collectively as the Puranas. It occupies a prominent position among the ancient Vaishnava Puranas which recount tales of creation and the many incarnations of Lord Vishnu. It describes the four classes of society, the four stages of life and the key astronomical concepts related to Hinduism. Brimming with insight and told with clarity, this translation of the Vishnu Purana by Bibek Debroy presents readers with an opportunity to truly understand the classical Indian mythic text.
Debroy has previously translated the Bhagavata Purana, the Markandeya Purana and the Brahma Purana.
