Brahma Purana is considered the most important of all the Puranas. An auspicious day and time should be chosen for Brahma Purana Katha. The best months for the Katha are Shravan, Bhadrapad, Ashwin, Magh, Falgun, Vaishakh and Jyeshtha. A person is believed to be free from all sins on hearing or reading the Brahma Purana. The changes that Brahma Purana brings in a persons life are priceless. It provides with longevity, fame, wealth, education and spirituality.

It is said that every person should read or hear the Brahma Purana atleast once in life. A person is believed to be blessed on doing so. Brahma Purana helps in a person in understanding the importance of self-sacrifice and charity. Brahma provides a person with contentment, peace, spirituality, education and salvation
