Essence Of
Bhavishya Purana

Kamakoti.org presents the Essence of Bhavishya Purana in English, condensed by Sri. V.D.N.Rao, devotee of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam and retired official of the Government of India. Bhavishya Purana is one of the major eighteen Puranas.
This is part of the series of Puranas being featured on kamakoti.org after Varaha Purana, Matsya Purana, Bhagavata Purana, Skanda Purana, Narada Purana, Shiva Purana, Markandeya Purana, Devi Bhagavata Purana and Padma Purana. The author can be contacted at raovdn@gmail.com

Yo goshatam kanakashringamayam dadaati
 vipraaya Vedavidushe cha bahu shrutaaya,
Punyaam Bhavishyasukathaam shrunuyaat samagraam
 Punyam samam bhavati tasya cha tasya chaiva/
(The ‘Punya’ or the high merit of donating hundreds of  cows with golden horns to Vidwan Brahmanas who are steeped in the knowledge of Vedas and other Holy Scriptures is accomplished by reading / hearing this Bhavishya Maha Purana).
[A ‘Purana’ literally denotes an account of the past History, but Bhavishya Purana is the History of the Future- a blend of the Past and the Future- occupying a distinct place among the Eighteen Maha Puranas. This Purana contains Brahma Parva, Madhyama Parva, Pratisarga Parva and Uttara Parva. The First Parva broadly describes the Major Deities of Vishnu, Shiva and Sun God as also methods of worship; the Madhyama and Prati Sargas deal with Rituals and Predictions of ‘Future’ reflecting the trends of Modern History and the Uttar Parva constitutes a hand book of religious faiths and Vratas. Considering the fact that this Purana was dated some time in the Fifth Cenury BC, the Predictions contained were so sound and accurate that they defied one’s imagination!]
