We have already gone through the series on importance & characteristics of all the eighteen Purans. We also know that originally there were hundred crore shlokas but were divided by Vyas in each Kalp and was compiled as eighteen Purans
for the common people to understand it properly and now their total is about four lakhs.

In Brahm Puran, Brahma preached this to Marichi. So this Puran of ten thousand shlokas is called Brahm Puran.
In Padma Puran, the base of the story is the appearance of Brahma on a lotus(Padm) from Vishnu' s navel.This has fifty five thousand shlokas.

Vishnu Puran is primarily based in Varah kalp. This book is on Vishnu and this book has twenty three thousand shlokas.
Vaayu Puran is written in Shwet Kalp and has twenty four thousand shlokas. Here Vayudev preaches about Dharma.

In Bhagwat Puran, which is written with the base of Gayatri mantra describes Dharma extensively. It has 18000 shlokas. It also mentions the story of Vritrasur.
In Narad Puran, which has twenty five thousand shlokas, is a sermon on Dharma by Narad based in Brihad Kalp.

Markandeya Puran has nine thousand shlokas and here it is through the birds that Dharma is described.
In Ishaan Kalp, Agnidev preaches to Vashishtha and has sixteen thousand shlokas in Agni Puran.

In Bhavishya Puran, based in Aghor Kalp, Brahma preaches to Manu about the importance of Surya and foresees the future or bhavishya happenings. It has 14500 shlokas.
In BRAHMVAIVART Puran there are eighteen thousand shlokas. Based in Rathantar Kalp, Narad describes the importance of Shrikrishna to Prithvi. It has twenty four thousand shlokas.
Skandapuraan is narrated through Skand and is based in Tatpurush Kalp. This has eighty one thousand shlokas. This describes the Maheshwar Dharma.

In Vamaan Puran Brahma describes the importance of Trivikrampur through Dharma, Arth and Kaam. It has ten thousand shlokas.
In Kurm Puran, Shri Hari in the form of tortoise sermons the Rishi's and Indra on the context of Indradhumn about Dharma, Arth, Kaam & Moksha. This has seventeen thousand shlokas.

In Matsya Puran, in the very beginning, Bhagwan in the form of Matsya/fish encourages the Rishis,
is based in Narsingh Kalp. It has fourteen thousand shlokas.

Garud Puran describes the origin of Universe as told by Vishnu to Garud. Based in Garud Kalp, this book has 18000 shlokas.

In Brahmand Puran Brahma describes the future Kalps. It has twelve thousand shlokas.
Later on the Rishi's and Muni's described these eighteen sub Purans named some of them after them or on the primary character. The matter in these was taken from the original Purans. As per Skand Puran, the Muni's mention that there are five parts of these.
They are Sarg, Prati Sarg, Vansh, Manvantar and Vanshanucharit, where the importance of Brahma, Vishnu, Surya and Rudra is mentioned. It also stresses the importance of Dharma, Arth, Kaam and Moksha.
These Purans have three sections namely Satvik, Raajas and Taamas. In Satvik Puran the importance is of Shri Hari. In Rajas Brahma is given importance and in Taamas Puran the importance of Agnidev and Rudra is mentioned. Wherever all the three bhaavs combine,
there we also find the importance of Sarasvati & Pittra.We find all the Vedas represented in these sub Purans.

The Sub Purans are as follows

Sanat Kumar
Skand Puran also mentions the Agneya Puran dedicated to Agnidev. Like mentioned before these subsections have been derived from original Purans. Like the portion of description of Narsingh from Padma puran becomes Narsingh puran.
Where the importance of Nandi is mentioned, it becomes Nandi Puran. Where Saamb is given importance it becomes Saamb Puran. Where Aditya is mentioned, it becomes Aditya Puran.

So this way we get to know the importance of some in these sub purans.

As per Skanda Puran, Kartikeya had narrated to Muni Agastya about the signs of the coming death. This is as per this ancient scripture. Image
If one experiences the air coming out of right nostril continuously then it is observed that the person dies within three years. If the breathing is continuous towards upper side from both the nostrils, then the person can die within two three days.
If the breathing is through the mouth instead of the nostrils then the person may live only for two days. The person should take into coignance these signs of the occurance of any sudden death.

Rig Ved 1.37.3

The strength of Praan is our breathing. Our Voice gets its strength from Praan. In other words the strength of our voice is actually our Praan. Dhwani or sound means that the knowledge of Parmatma is attained through Vedas.

1/6 Image
This knowledge is of three types- Atmik(आत्मिक), Upssanatmak(उपासनात्मत) and Gyanatmak(ज्ञानात्मक). This dhwani or sound gives us an indication that we have to know Parmatma through all the three ways.

इ॒हेव॑ शृण्व एषां॒ कशा॒ हस्ते॑षु॒ यद्वदा॑न् ।
नि याम॑ञ्चि॒त्रमृं॑जते ॥

Translation :

इहेव - Here.

श्रृण्वे - To hear.

एषाम् - They.

कशाः - Whip.

हस्तेषु - In hand.

यद् वदान् - Making noise.

Rig Ved 1.37.4

Here this mantra States that our Praan is always pure, but our mind and lust makes it impure. These impurities or vices are born in mind and thoughts. Praan is considered to be devta. So we have to sing its praises.

Praan is always active(Marudgans are called Praan). Our other body parts will be rendered as useless in the absence of Praan.

Since the devta's were facing penury due to the curse of Rishi Durvaasa when Indra put the Paarijat (given as a blessing to Indra) flower on the elephants head instead of he wearing it, Laxmi mata refused to enter the abode of devtas.
So the devta's went to Brahma ji for advice. Brahma gave them the Narayan kavach ( ) and asked the devtas to pray and satisfy Laxmi at Kshir Sagar.

By their devoted plea and prayers Laxmi happily appeared before them.
The whole atmosphere changed on her appearance. She then spoke to the devtas that she will never enter the place where a Brahmin has been insulted, here she meant to say about insult of Durvaasa by Indra. As per her statement neither Vishnu ji would also help anyone who

Rig Ved 1.37.2

Here "Marudgans came with a loud rambling noise"means that they have entered the Pran(there are ten types of Pran and sub Pran ie प्राण(Praan), अपान( Apaan), उदान(Udan), व्यान(Vyan), समान(Samaan), धनंजय(Dhananjay),देवदत्त(Devdatt), क्रिकल(Krikal), नाग(Naag) &

कूर्म(Kurm). It means that
we have attained strength. Through this strength we have to attain that Param Vastu that also through this body or Upaadhi. The body exists because of food. It works due to Praan through Annamay kosh(अन्नमय कोष), Manomay kosh(मनोमय कोष),

Vigyanmay kosh( विज्ञानमय कोष) and Anandmai kosh( आनंदमय कोष). This achievement will be possible only through zeal(उत्साह) in our inclinations(वृत्ति). Shruti Bhagwati is requesting for the same.

ये पृष॑तीभिर्ऋ॒ष्टिभिः॑ सा॒कं वाशी॑भिरं॒जिभिः॑ ।
अजा॑यंत॒ स्वभा॑नवः ॥
