Know the Puranas
by Ramanuj Prasad
The Purānas are the living images with breath and heart beats ans have manifestation of devotion to the duties,discipline [conduct] and identity with the Lord, who dispenses the fruits of action. Throught the constitution of heaven and hell (Swarga and Naraka), it gives jolt to the root of human tendency. Thus one is awake to one's own footsteps to guide, not to be guided blindly. Since then, much waters had gone down and many where spilled over. But the Purānas still today dare to play back the melodies of the Sun and the Moon for you.
