About the Book

 

The Purana-texts are full of innumerable myths and legends. The
study of Puranic legends is not only interesting but
also amply rewarding. For study of any Puranic myth

very careful and cautious while dealing with the Puranic
legends. Otherwise one may not be in a position to understand and appreciate
them properly. This work presents a critical analysis of some important Puranic legends.

 

About the Author

 

Dr. Siddheswar Jena is, at present, working as the Head of the Deptt. of Sai1skrit at N.C.

thorough critical study of some Puranic legends.
