I am a big fan of Mr. Menon and have read all of his translations. This Purana which is about the God Vishnu and his incarnations on earth. Most notably Krishna who was on earth on the crack of the last yuga. This is a must read if you have read the mahabharata. You will see how krishna's life and actions tie into the epic that is the mahabharata. But not only that this book is filled with pages of wisdom and spiritual knowledge. I took me a while to buy this book as i waxed and waned about the price for a long while. When I finally gave in I thought to myself i wish I had bought it earlier. This is one of those rare books that is worth the high cost. Not only that this book is not a chore to read to the contrary it is especially enjoyable and I spent many a night reading into the AM.
