Puranas have great glory in Indian culture and scriptures. Puranas are the storehouses of infinite knowledge. Their hearing, contemplation, reading, parayan, and persuasion lead to the purification of the conscience, detachment from objects, the tendency to detachment and devotion to the Lord, and a natural interest in the Lord. As a result, by consuming them, the only goal of human life – ‘God-realization’ or ‘Moksha attainment’ is also easily accessible.
