Jay Siya Ram, Jay Shree Krsna, Om Namah Shivayam.


Any idea where I can get hold of complete English translations of these texts?


Sanatan Dharma ke jay.


The Shiva Purana is not a maha-purana, contrary to popular opinion. The Vayu Purana is the actual Shaiva Maha-purana.


A matter of names getting mixed up. So you may want to buy the vayu instead. Also, if the MLBD web site lists a certain book as out of print, do not despair. Call up one of their stores and if available, they will be happy to find you a copy for no extra charge. I have found 2 out of print books this way.

I don't know about book translations but i have found university language centres a great resource. Their translations are non-religious and purely academic. Cambridge Uni has online resources - check it out (now that i'm looking for it i can't find it! If i come accross it, will post here).




inetersting quote from Vayu Purana (from http://mangalpur.tripod.com/id15.html):



suddho gaurah-su-dirghango



bhavisyami kalau yuge In the age of Kali-Yuga, I shall come [bhavisyami kalau yuge] in a place on the bank of the Ganges [ganga-tira-samudbhavah]. I will be very pure [suddhah], have a golden complexion [gaurah], and be very tall [su-dirghangah] and chant the holy names of Krishna.


Sound familiar? ;)
