Vamana Purana Pt. 1 (AITM Vol. 72): Ancient Indian Tradition And Mythology
- +
Vamana is assigned the fourteenth position in the list of eighteen Mahapuranas or major Puranic texts, preceded by Skanda and succeeded by Kurma. It gets its name after Vamana or the dwarf incarnation of God Visnu, which is the first human incarnation preceded by the "Fish", and "Tortoise". "Boar" and "Man-Lion" incarnations that can, by the way, be seen as corresponding to the earlier stages of the evolution of life on the earth, the main purpose of the Purana being a description of the legend of the demon Bali, grandson of Prahlada, the Visnu devotee par excellence, suffering a great discomfiture due to very tactful maneuver resorted by God Visnu as the dwarf. The extant text of Vamana has 95 chapters and approximately 6,000 slokas, though Bhagavata and some other Puranas state that Vamana has an Uttarabhaga also containing four Samhitas of 1000 slokas each, which, however, has not been discovered so far. As the title indicates, this Purana has mainly a Vaisnava theme but Saiva material also forms an integral part of it, e.g., ›ivaís killing of the demon Andhaka, the marriage of Siva and Parvati, the birth of Ganesa and Karttikeya, defeat of Mahisasura by Devi, glorification of Sivalingas and their installation. The legends, stories, and episodes included in this Purana are generally of the same type as found in other Puranas.
