Narasimha Purana

 It occupies an important place among the UPA-Puranas and like other Puranas, this is also considered to be compiled by Vyasa. On the contrary,  this Purana dwells at length on one or more particular subjects and five primary  topics-1.) Primary creation or Cosmogony 2.) Secondary creation 3.) Geneology of  gods and patriarchs 4.) reigns of the Manus 5.) History of the Solar and Lunar dynasties. It contains various episodes of the incarnation of Lord Vishnu,  specially Narasimha (the man-lion) avatar and Rama Avatar. There are 25 chapters,  which describe all topics related to Purana. It describes the story of Rishi  Markandeya’s victory over death and YamaGita. The firm of devotion, the definition of a  true devotee, and the character of devotees like Dhruva have been described in this  Purana. Despite being small it’s full of meaning.
