AGNIPURANA o Agni Purâòa

AGNIPURANA. (Etim. Del sáns. agni, fuego, el dios Agni, y purana, antiguo, arcaico, y en Lit., comentario.) Lit. Mit. ind. Adición legendaria ó purana del Veda, concerniente especialmente a cosas de guerra. Está inspirado en ella el segundo libro de Yaynavalkya, publicado recientemente por Stenzler, cuya importancia se parangonea con la de Manú: se considera que data del II al VII siglo de nuestra era. Stenzler opina que ninguna de las dos revisiones hechas de este código, tituladas Brihad. Yanhnavalkya y Wridda-Yalma-Walkya, es posterior a las demás que se conocen, excepción hecha del citado Manú.

Agnipurana. A Purana that derives its name from its having been communicated originally by Agni, the deity of fire, to the Muni Vasishtha, for the purpose of instructing him in the twofold knowledge of Brahma. Its contents are variously specified as "sixteen thousand, fifteen thousand, and fourteen thousand stanzas." The work is devoted to the glorification of Shiva, but its contents are of a very varied and cyclopedic character. It has portions on ritual and mystic worship, cosmical descriptions, and chapters on the duties of kings and the art of war, which appear to have been extracted from some older work, a chapter on law from the textbook of Yajnavalkya, some chapters on medicine from the Sushruta, and some treatises on rhetoric, the metrical structure of verse, and grammar according to the rules of Pingala and Panini. (The Manurishi Foundation, Encyclopedic Dictionary of Hindu Terms).
