  • What makes a text a Purana? Pancha Lakshana

    What makes a text a Purana? Pancha Lakshana

    Purana texts are story collections that adhere to a fixed literary format. However, each Purana may offer its unique moral stories, some semi-historical information, and guidance on Puja practices. Amarakosha, a famous grammar text from the fifth century, lists five mandatory requirements or Lakshanas for a story collection to be called a Purana. These Lakshana-requirements…

This is how it all started…

I am an Indian American who began as an amateur writer during a short break from my Engineering career in 2014. I continue with my research and writing for the following reason

“Indias have inherited 40 million manuscripts from its past. These texts have not drawn the attention of historians and archeologists because they do not fit the standard mold. Firstly, the subject matter in them is diverse. Secondly, a rigorous scientific approach is needed to follow their methodology. Topics in these texts become more precious as years go by in the context of scientific discoveries. Simultaneously, ideas in these texts are fading from our collective consciousness. There is some urgency in keeping them alive for future generations.”

My first publication was a book on Vedic astronomy. My latest two books present ideas from the text of Agasthya, a Tamil Siddhar master who lived several centuries ago. I am currently gathering information on Siddha Medicine for publication. I consult Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar in choosing topics to research for his books.

“Gurudev has the ability to lucidly explain matters from the Vedas in a modern context. He believes that wisdom from the past is a gift to humanity. I am fortunate to have his guidance. He helps me prioritize my research work.”
