New Books Network: The Skandapurāṇa Project

The Varáha Cycle and the Andhaka Cycle Continued. Vol. V. Adhyáyas 96 - 112

Started in the 1990's, the Skandapurāṇa project is aimed at creating a critical edition of the Skandapurāṇa along with documenting its variations over time as well producing important studies of the text.

Raj Balkaran from New Books Network interviews Peter Bisschop and Yuko Yokochi about their work on this monumental project. The latest installment (Volume 5, featuring Chapters 92-112 of the Skandapurāṇa, with an introduction and annotated English synopsis) addresses the incorporation of Vaisnava mythology in the text.

Thanks to generous support of the J. Gonda Fund Foundation, the e-book version of this volume is available in Open Access.
