The Puranas are of the same class as the Itihasas (the Ramayana , Mahabharata , etc.). They have five characteristics (Pancha Lakshana), viz., history , cosmology (with various symbolical illustrations of philosophical principles), secondary creation , genealogy of kings , and of Manvantaras (the period of Manu ’s rule consisting of 71 celestial Yugas or 308,448,000 years).
