DESCRIPTION

The Brahmanda Purana (The history of the universe) (Sanskrit: , Brahma Pura) is one of the eighteen Mahapuranas, a genre of eighteen Hindu religious texts and has been assigned the eighteenth place in almost all the lists of the Puranas.[1] Brahma in Sanskrit means "the biggest" or "the universe", anda/andam means Egg. So, Brahmanda means the "Biggest Egg" signifying the life from which Universe is born. The Padma Purana categorizes Brahmanda Purana as a Rajas Purana(Purana which represents dimness and passion).[2]The Brahmanda Purana gets its name from the account of Brahmanda (the Biggest cosmic egg ) and the future cosmic ages revealed by Brahma.
