The Padma Purana is one of the eighteen major Puranas, a genre of ancient Indian literature that encompasses mythological stories, religious teachings, and diverse narratives. Believed to have been composed between the 4th and 15th centuries CE, the Padma Purana is a significant text within Hinduism. It is traditionally attributed to the sage Vyasa, who is also credited with compiling the Vedas and composing the epic Mahabharata. The Padma Purana is divided into six books, or sections, known as “Khandas,” each exploring various aspects of cosmology, theology, mythology, and moral conduct. This Purana is revered for its intricate narratives, religious instructions, and insights into Hindu philosophy, making it an essential source for understanding the cultural and spiritual heritage of India.
