MARKANDEYA PURANA

Bhagwan Shiv

Phala Shruti of Markandeya Purana

Chatuh Prashna samopetam Puraanam shrutvapunascha they paapam kalpakoti shathai krutam/
Brahmahatyaadi paapaani yaanyaayaanya shubhaanicha,

 taani sarvaani nashyantitrunaam vaatahatam yathaa/
pushkarey daanamjo punyam shravanaasya jaayatey,
Sarva Vedaadhika phalam samaapthyaachadh gacchati /

(Listening to this highly virtuous Markandeya Purana with Four Questions of Maha Bharata, would abrogate sins committed through hundred crore ‘Kalpas’! Even Brahmahatya and such other serious ‘Pancha Patakas’ or the worst listed Five Major Sins would fly away as mere straws with the forceful velocity of winds. Substantial ‘Punya’or fruits of high meritorious deeds would be earned in the same manner as of ‘Daan’ or charity at Pushkara Tirtha and of reciting all the Four Vedas with sincerity and devotion.)

Puranashravanaa devaparam yogamavaapnuyaat,
naastikaaya na daatavyam vrushaley Vedanindakey
/Gurudwijaati nindaaya tatha bhagna vrataayacha,
Maataapitro nindakaaya Vedashastradinindaney/
bhinnamaryaadiney chaiva tatha vai jnaati kopiney,
yetheshaam naiva daatavyam Praanaih kanthagatairapi/

(Listening to Markandeya Purana even once would bestow high merits, but do not be instrumental to give the Purana to ‘Nastikas’ (Non-believers), Shudras, Critics of Vedas and Gurus, those who failed to complete performing Vratas and abandon half way, those who discard their parents, close relatives and normal courtesies etc. Do avoid giving this Sacred Purana, even if such persons demand and try to read it by hook or crook).
 
Markandeya Vuvaacha/
 Yetatsarvamupaakhyaanam Dharmai Swargaapavargadam,
Yah Shrunoti pathedvaapi sidhham tasya sameehitam/
Aaadhivyaadhija duhkhena kadaa chhinnaabhiyujyatey,
Brahmahatyaabhi paapebhyomuchyatey naathra samshayah/
Samtah swajana mitraani bhavanti hita buddhayah,
Naarayah sambhavishyanti dasyavo vaa kadaachana/
sadartho mishtabhogi chadhurbhikshairnaarvaseedati,
paradara para- dravya parahimsaadikilbishaih/
muchyateyneka duhkebhyo nityam chaiva Dwijottama,
Ruddhivruddhih smritih shantihi Shreeh Pushtistrushtirevacha/
Nithyam tasya bhavodvipra yah shrunoti kathaamimam/

( Mahatma Markandeya said: This complete exposition in the Purana bestows Dharma, Swarga and Apavarga  or Fulfillment; whoever reads or hears shall achieve their inner desires; such persons shall never be victims of physical ailments, worldly difficultes and complexities,  or of any kind of mental troubles or natural calamities; their failings and indulgences including the worst kind of sins are washed out; their relatives, friends and well-wishers get more intimate and helpful; they shall have no enemies; they shall never be troubled by robbers; they attain prosperity; they enjoy excellent food; they shall never be bothered or involved by other women, other’s money, and other’s actions of violence and their fears; they shall get rid of sorrows of any description; and they enjoy Ruddhi or prosperity, Buddhi or intellect, Smriti or memory, Shanti or Peace, Lakshmi or Wealth / propitiousness, Pushti or physical well-being, and Tushti or contentment.)
