Being a veritable source of Indian Tradition and Mythology, it occupies a unique position in this respect. Named after Skanda, son of Siva, this Purana expounds doctrine and worship of Siva. It also contains legends of Siva, especially his battles with Daityas and Danavas. There are sections on Yoga – Dhyana (Meditation) and Jnana (Knowledge). This present volume – Prabhasa Khanda of the ancient Indian Tradition and Mythology series, contains two hundred and forty-five legends which talk mainly on the greatness of many shrines and deities like Jamadegnyesvara, Citrangadesvara, Ravanesvara, Saubhagyesvari, Paulomisvara, Sandilyesvara, Ksemankaresvara, Citresvara, Vicitresvara, Puskara-Kunda, Gajakumbhodara, Yameshvara, Brahmakunda, Kundalakupa, Bhairava, Naradesvara Bhairava, Hiranyaesvara, Gayatrisvara and of many others.
