Padma Purana, Uttara Khanda, Chapter 236 states:
सात्विका मोक्षदाः प्रोक्ताः राजसा सर्वदा अशुभाः ।
तथैव तामसा देवि निरयप्राप्तिहेतवः ।।
Among these puranas Satvika Puranas lead one to liberation, Rajasa do not cause good and Tamasa puranas lead one to hell. (236.2)
Now, this guna based classification of Puranas, I have been told, is also present in the Matsya (which is a Tamasika Purana incidentally in the Padma Purana). I want to know whether the Matsya Purana does indeed mention a classification of the Puranas on the basis of gunas. If yes, does it discourage one to read Rajasika and Tamasika Puranas?
