Skandapurāṇa (स्कन्दपुराण):—The Skanda Purana is the largest Mahapurana, a genre of eighteen Hindu religious texts. The text is devoted mainly to the lilas of Kartikeya, a son of Shiva and Parvati, who is also known as Skanda. It also contains a number of legends about Shiva, and the holy places associated with him. This Mahapurana was recited by the sage Vyasa, and is available in distinct parts, sometimes fragmented too.

The seven khandas:

  1. The Maheśvarakhaṇḍa consists of three sections:
  2. The Viṣṇukhaṇḍa or Vaiṣṇava Khaṇḍa consists of nine sections:
  3. The Brahmakhaṇḍa has three sections:
  4. The Kāśīkhaṇḍa is divided into two parts:
  5. The Āvantyakhaṇḍa consists of:
  6. The Nāgarakhaṇḍa (279 chapters) consists of Tirthamāhātmya.
  7. The Prabhāsakhaṇḍa (491 chapters) consists of:

The six samhitas:

The second type of division of the Skanda Purana is found in some texts like Hālasyamāhātmya of the Agastya Saṃhitā or the Śaṃkarī Saṃhitā, Sambhava Kāṇḍa of the Śaṃkarī Saṃhitā, Śivamāhātmya Khaṇḍa of the Sūta Saṃhitā and Kālikā Khaṇḍa of the Sanatkumāra Saṃhitā. According to these texts, the Skanda Purana consists of six saṃhitās (sections):

  1. the Sanatkumāra Saṃhitā
  2. the Sūta Saṃhitā
  3. the Śaṃkarī Saṃhitā
  4. the Vaiṣṇavī Saṃhitā
  5. the Brāhmī Saṃhitā and
  6. the Saura Saṃhitā

The other texts:

The manuscripts of several other texts which claim to be part of the Skanda Purana are found partially or wholly. Some of the notable texts amongst these are:

  1. Himavatkhaṇḍa which contains Nepālamāhātmya (30 chapters),
  2. Kanakādrikhaṇḍa,
  3. Bhīmakhaṇḍa,
  4. Śivarahasyakhaṇḍa,
  5. Sahyādrikhaṇḍa,

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
