Garuda Purana, authored by B. K. Chaturvedi, is a book that details many unknown and uncommon concepts of the Garuda Purana. Summary of the Book Garuda Purana is a Vaishnava Purana and is one of the 18 puranas of the texts called Smriti. It contains nineteen thousand shlokas. It is depicted as the conversation between the Garuda and Lord Vishnu. The first part of the Purana is called the Purva Khanda and the second part is called the Uttara Khanda.
