. The Puranas are traditionally said to narrate five subjects, called pachalakhaa ("five distinguishing marks"):
They are:
Sarga The creation of the universe.
Pratisarga Secondary creations, mostly re-creations after dissolution.
Vama Genealogy of royals and sages.
Manvatara Various eras.
Vamnucaritam Dynastic histories.
A Purana usually gives prominence to a certain deity (Shiva, Vishnu or Krishna, Durga) and depicts the other gods as subservient.
