The Padma Purana classifies the 18 Mahapuranas according to the gunas.
The Padma Purana classifies these texts according to the three Gunas
and ascribes them to one or the other principal deity. Thus the
Vishnu, Narada, Bhagavata, Garuda, Padma, and Varaha, are Vishnuite
sattvika Puranas, and as such lead to salvation; the Brahmanda,
Brahmavaivarta, Markendeya, Bhavisya, Vamana, and Brahma are the
rajasa texts devoted to Brahman and secure only heaven for their
readers; lastly the Matsya, Kurma, Linga, Siva, Skanda, and Agni are
Saivite and styled as tamas. It is surprising to note that these
latter are regared as leading to hell.
