Description

Back of the Book

Any act that is performed while chanting this previously-mentioned mantra will turn out successful because all the planets become satisfied. After chanting this mantra while concentrating into water for seven nights, there can be torrents of rain, or else ponds and well can became dry, and deities in the temples of the demigods can shake, or else be attracted or stunned. Indeed, this mantra can attract a man or woman, even if he or she is thousands of miles away … (Chapter 27, texts 27-30)

To become an object of love and affection for people in general and to control the king, one should prepare a thumb-sized deity of Ganapati … If one offers incense made from red sandalwood to the Lord within the heat, who is represented by Ganapati, he will become very fortunate …(Chapter 29, text 13)

One who, with faith and devotion, fasts while worshiping Surya on this Saptami, which dispels the reactions to all kinds of sinful activities and awards advancement on the path toward transcendental happiness, will gain relief from the threefold material miseries. (Chapter 61, text 35)

 

Introduction

There are eighteen major Puranas, as stated in the Srimad-Bhagavatam (12.7.23-24): The eighteen major Puranas are the Brahma, Padma, Visnu, Siva, Linga, Garuda, Narada, Bhagavata, Agni, Skanda, Bhavisya, Brahma-vaivarta, Markandeya Vamana, Varaha, Matsya, Kurma and Brahmanda Puranas.

The number of verses in each Purana is listed in other verses of the Srimad-Bhagavatam (12.13.4-9): The Brahma Purana consists of ten thousand verses, the Padma Purana of fifty-five thousand, Sri Visnu Purana of twenty-three thousand, the Siva Purana of twenty-four thousand and Srimad-Bhagavatam of eighteen thousand. The Narada Purana has twenty-five thousand verses, the Markandeya Purana nine thousand, the Agni purana fifteen thousand four hundred, the Bhavisya Purana fourteen thousand five hundred, the Brahma-vaivarta Purana eighteen thousand and the Linga Purana eleven thousand . The Varaha Purana contains twenty-four thousand verses, the Skanda Puranas eight-one thousand one hundred, the Vamana Purana fourteen thousand, the Garuda Purana nineteen thousand and the Brahmanda Purana twelve thousand. Thus the total number of verses in all the Puranas is four hundred thousand. Eighteen thousand of these, once again, belong to the beautiful Bhagavatam. This is the first edition of an English Bhavisya purana to be published ad so naturally it will be if interest to scholars of Vedic literature. As the name implies, this book gives predictions into the future and this is if special interest to one all. This second volume deals primarily with worship of the sun-god. While going though this volume, you may become puzzled because the glorification of the sun-god seems to indicate that e is the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

In the chapter summary of Canto Five, chapter twenty-two of Srimad-Bhagavatam, Srila Prabhupada wrote: The sun-god, who controls the affairs of the entire universe, especially in regard to heat, light, seasonal changes ad so on, is considered an expansion of Narayana. He represents the three Vedas-Rg, Yajur and Sama-and therefore he is known as Trayimaya, the form of Lord Narayana. Sometimes the sun-god is also called Surya Narayana. The sun-god has expanded himself in twelve divisions, and thus he controls the six seasonal changes and causes winter, summer, rain and so on. Yogis and karmis following the varnasrama institution, who practice hatha or Astanga-yoga or who perform agnihotra sacrifices, worship Surya Narayana for their own benefit. The demigod Surya is always in touch with the Supreme personality of Godhead, Narayana.

As explained in this volume, the sun-god is not merely one of the demigods. This is confirmed by Srila Prabhupada in his purport to Srimad-Bhagavatam 5.23.3: It is also significant that the predominating deities of even the greatest planets have been of fered their exalted posts because of the very valuable pious activities they performed in previous births. This is indicated herein by the words karma-nirmita-gatayah. For example, as we have previously discussed, the moon in called Jiva, which means that he is a living entity like us, but because of his pious activities he has been appointed to his post as the moon-god. Similarly, all the demigods are living entities who have been appointed to their various posts as the masters of the moon, the earth, Venus and so on because of their great service and pious acts. Only the predominating deity of the sun, Surya Narayana, is an incarnation of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

At the end of this volume, Surya himself discloses the fact that he is not the Supreme Personality of Godhead. When asked who he worships, he responds that he worships the Supreme Lord, who is his eternal master. It is advised that for achieving good health and a cure for a diseased condition, one should worship the sun-god. With this in mind, let me hope that these words find you in good health.

A similar statement is there is the Bhavisya Purana, in which it is said, "Even if born of a lowly family, a person who follows the Ratha-yatra car when the Deities pass in front or fro behind will surely be elevated to the position of achieving equal opulence with Visnu."
