The Narasirhha Purana has not yet been critically edited. The Narasirhha Purana as available in print at present consists of 68 chapters, but the presence of the anecdote of the Narasithha-Caturadasi-Ttrata in Hemadri's Caturvargacintamani (1270 A.D.) and Ayodhya-tirtha-prasamsa as found out in four manuscripts by Dr. Umakanta Chaturvedi suggest that there was undoubtedly in existence a somewhat larger text of the Narasirhha Purana than the printed text available at present. This monograph "Textual Correlation of the Narasirhha Purana with other Puranas and Sanskrit Texts", shows the textual borrowing of the Narasirhha Purana from divergent sources, and it is presented to the scholarly world with the hope that it would be of much assistance in the critical edition and reconstruction of the Narasirhha Purana in future.Printed Pages: 126.
