The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.

Visnu Purana
Unlike the other puranas where generally the Suta Romaharsana narrates the stories after being questioned by some sages, this purana (Vishnu Purana) is narrated by the sage Parasara (father of Vyasa and grandson of Vasistha) to his disciple Maitreya.

Though most of the work is in poetry, it has elegant prose passages also. In fact, it has all the characteristics of a good literary classic.

It has three commentaries: Atmaprakasa by Sridhara (15th century A. D.); Vaisnavakutacandrika by Ratnagarbha; and, Visnucittiya by an unknown author.

The contents of the six amsas are as follows:

First Amsa (22 chapters; 1412 verses)

The 24 cosmic principles and the creation of the world; creation of beings like the prajapatis, pitrs and devas; stories of Dhruva and Prahlada; greatness of Visnu.

Second Amsa (16 chapters; 789 verses)

Geographical details of this earth and of the 14 worlds; Navagrahas or the nine planets; some astronomical details of stars and planets; stories of Rbhu and Nidagha.

Third Amsa (18 chapters; 830 verses)

Manvantaras, Manus and their sons; Vyasa and division of the Vedas; the four varnas and the asramas: on sraddha (obsequial rites) in detail.

Fourth Amsa (24 chapters; 1353 verses)

Lineages of Vaivasvata Manu and Iksvaku; story of Sri Rama; descriptions of Somavamsa, Yaduvamsa and Kuruvamsa (i.e., the kings of those lineages); kings of the future up to the kings of Magadha; Kalidharma or the characteristics of the Kali-age.

Fifth Amsa (38 chapters; 1517 verses)

Story of Krisna in great detail; mutual destruction of the Yadavas; coronation of Pariksit; final journey of the Pandavas.

Sixth Amsa (8 chapters; 498 verses)

Interesting and long description of the behaviour of the people in the Kaliyuga; greatness of the Kaliyuga since worship and singing the glories of Lord Krsna are enough to attain liberation; description of pralaya or dissolution of the world; eulogy of this purana.
