Indian Purans
Puranas are the religious texts that deal with Indian myths and religious legends. Puranas symbolize powers and works of the Gods, and one ancient Sanskrit lexicographer, Amarasinha, writing in the fifth or sixth century A.D., defined a Purana as having five characteristic topics, or “pancalaksana”. The epics and other Hindu ancient texts provide a comprehensive insight into the Hindu religion. Buddhist and Jain Puranas are also an integral part of the Indian religion.
