Sarvabhouma Aby Aby 5, 10 39 Here are the links to all four volumes: Thanks a lot Keshav, but what do you mean by Shiv Purana has some interpolations. Can you give some examples. Aby Interpolations are passages that are not part of the original text, and instead were inserted into the text by later people.

That's why scholars construct critical editions, so that they can try to restore the original text as best they can. A likely example would be any passage in the Shiva Purana that references Ganesha, since Ganesha only became popular later on. Hmm, I think you are correct in that sense. While reading in Hindi, I also felt like some things were introduced later and which contradict to what was stated earlier.

That was also one of a reason I wanted to read in verse by verse format so that I can be sure that the book I have read is not an imposter. But as far as Lord Ganesha is concerned, I don't think we have much of him in this book except for elephant-head incident or praying to him before destroying Tripur but i think that should be ok as per the most famous authenticated story of Lord Ganesha that we know.

Or do you mean to say that even these stories were a later addition. Traditionally, there are 18 Puranas, and a few lesser Puranas or Upapuranas. The Shiva Purana as it exists now consists of around 24, slokas or verses, and is said to have been composed by sage Vyasa himself. According to the lore, the Shiva Purana originally consisted of 12 Samhitas or chapters, and , verses.

Of these the Rudra Samhita is the largest and consists of five parts dealing with creation of the existence, the story of Sati and Shiva, the story of Parvati and Shiva, the birth and battles of Kumara or Skanda, and the battles of Shiva. The seventh samhita is the Vayaviya. It has been suggested that this samhita included what has now become the Agni Purana, which was split of at some time in the past to form a separate purana. The Shiva Purana has all the characteristics of a Mahapurana.

According to the ancients, a Mahapurana contained five main characteristics that concerned either early religion or traditional history.

Of these the origin of the universe Sarga is an important feature of every religion. As a Mahapurana and a sacred work of the Shiva cult, The Shiva Purana possesses this important trait.

It discusses the origin of the universe which it traces to Shiva, the eternal god who though devoid of attributes, still has an inherent Energy which manifests itself in the form of three principles - Sattva, Rajas and Tamas personified as the three deities Vishnu, Brahma and Rudra.

The three have their respective energies called Lakshmi, Saraswati and Kali, in collaboration with whom they create, maintain and dissolve the universe. According to this account, the work of creation is entrusted to Brahma who creates the cosmic egg consisting of 24 principles. The cosmic egg is insentient at first but when Vishnu pervades it, it goes in motion.

Then different kinds of creation are evolved out of it. The above analysis clearly demonstrates that the Shiva purana possesses the conventional characteristics of a Mahapurana in common with its other colleagues. These entitle it to the status of a great purana. But its real greatness lies in expounding the philosophical background of Shiva ritual.

The Purana conceives Shiva as the eternal principle, the supreme god, the cosmic soul, the support of all existence. But the ignorant aspirant bound in the meshes of illusion goes in quest for knowledge and imagines that his lord has a personal form possessed of attributes distinct from his self, who in moments of distress responds to his prayers and bestows grace. The devotee, then aspires for spiritual enlightenment and takes to ritual for self-purification. Shiva Purana enjoins several rites of worship and acts of homage, comprising a series of physical and spiritual practices in accompaniment with the Tantra, Yantra and Mantra appliances.

He starts with the threefold devotion - hearing, glorifying and deliberating the attributes of God - a process that requires, according to the Shiva Purana, the same steady attention as in the sexual intercourse. In this connection the Rudrasamhita mentions eight means for attaining mental concentration and spiritual enlightenment.

Further the aspirant is asked to control the six chakras located in the spinal canal called sushumna that lies between the Ida and Pingala nadis. That is possible only by taking recourse to the means of knowledge, by the purification of six pathways, the performance of traditional rites and yogic practices.
