Brahmavaivarta Purana is one among the list of ancient Indian Puranas which are considered sacred to Hinduism. It is believed that Narada instructed to Savarnika the Brahmavaivarta. The main theme of the Brahmavaivarta Purana is the story of Rathantara. Apart from this, there are four Kandas in this Purana, known as the Brahma Kanda, Prakrti Kanda, Ganesha Kanda and Krishnajanma Kanda. This deals with Prapancasrsti or creation of the universe. It defines that Prapanca is no other than Vaivarta (transformation) of Lord Brahma. In addition, it contains fames and pastimes of Radha and Lord Krishna. There are eighteen thousand verses contained in the Brahmavaivarta Purana. Gifting this book on the full-moon day in the month of Magha (February) is regarded as extremely holy and auspicious.

First part describes the creation of the universe and all beings, the second part relates to description and histories of different goddesses. The third part is mostly devoted to life and deeds of Ganesha, and the last part details the life and deeds of Krishna.
