Composed primarily in Sanskrit , but also in Tamil and other Indian languages,   several of these texts are named after major Hindu deities such as Vishnu, Shiva, Brahma and Shakti. The Puranic literature is encyclopedic,  and it includes diverse topics such as cosmogony , cosmology , genealogies of gods, goddesses, kings, heroes, sages, and demigods, folk tales, pilgrimages, temples, medicine, astronomy, grammar, mineralogy, humor, love stories, as well as theology and philosophy. They have been influential in the Hindu culture , inspiring major national and regional annual festivals of Hinduism. The Chaitanya school also rejects outright any monistic interpretation of the purana. The Puranic literature wove with the Bhakti movement in India, and both Dvaita and Advaita scholars have commented on the underlying Vedantic themes in the Maha Puranas.
