The following verse has been used in a couple of answers here and this blog post claims the verse is from the Padma Purāṇa although it doesn't mention the chapter # or the context.

Definition [of ṛṇānubandhana] from the The Padma Purana

Runanubhanda Rupena Pashu Patni Suta Aalaya
Runakshaye Kshyayaanthi Tatra Parivedana

Meaning: Every relationship is the result of previous birth bondage. Once the debt is annihilated, there is no relationship and hence the end of suffering in this Saṃsāra.

Is Padma Purāṇa really the source of this verse?

  • @Pandya do you any location where you can search sanskrit verses using english transliterations? – Govinda May 22 at 15:00

    @KrishnaVarna If you have Devanagari text, sanskritdocuments.org and sa.wikisoirce.org are good resources to search. Otherwise you have to search in pdfs available at Vedic reserve site. – Paṇḍyā May 22 at 15:09

    @KrishnaVarna Try GRETIL, Digital Corpus of Sanskrit and wisdomlib - but not all Sanskrit texts, especially Puranas, have been transliterated yet. – sv. May 22 at 19:01
