Bṛhannāradīyapurāṇa, circa 1700-1850.
Abstract:
Selection from the larger purāṇic work (adhyāya 31) dedicated to the Hindu deity Viṣṇu. Selection deals with the problem of sin (pāpa), its causes, as well as the means to remove it for the purpose of being liberated from the snares of the cycle of life and death (samsāra). The worship of Nārāyaṇa (a form of Viṣṇu) is presented as one means of liberation.
