About the Book

 

Vedavyasa emerged over the Indian Literary horizon, who besides working on the Vedas had also composed the epic of Mahabharta as well as the eighteen Puranas. The Up-puranas. Also are believed to have been composed by him and the Devi Mahabhagavata Purana, which comes under the category of the Up-Puranas is also attributed to him.

As compared to the other Puranic texts, Devi Purana could not gain much of importance as compared to the Visnu, Siva, Markandeya or the Bhagavata Purana etc. This Puranc is mainly dedicated to the exploits of the Universal Mother or Jagadamba, whose personality has been projected quite force full in this Purana. Basides other episods, the events of the marriage of Sati and Parvati with Siva have been lively projected, besides highlighting the lively projected, besides highlighting the lives of Siva, Sri Rama, others distus like Indra and others. The most interesting aspect of these projections are the projections of ten Mahavidyas by Sati before Siva, and Siva’s appearing as Radha and Parvati’s, appearing a Krsna on earth. This is a unique aspect of the Purana the Parallel of which is rarely in other Puranas. Chapter 23, of this Purana displays the event of Siva reciting the thousand names stotra or Lalitasahasranama-stotra. In chapter 67, the text of Sivasahasranama is available, and in chapter 75, the stotra eilogusing Ganga with the hundred and eight names enshrined. With the above salient features of the Purana, I am confident that hthe work its translation would find with scholars as well as other readers.
