I am searching for authentic Bengali translation of Padma Purana with Sanskrit sources, specifically the portion of Uttar Khand containing Glorification of Srimadvagabad Gita (Chapter 175-192, Part.VIII & IX of N.A.Deshpande's English translation). I have uploaded the relevant portion (English) here. If Bengali translation is unavailable online then can any linguistic scholar help me by translating it.

  • The zip file contains Padma Purana in 6 parts with Sanskrit slokas printed in Bengali script only. No translation. I will now try to get a copy of the physical book.

  • Oh ok, I didn't realize that. Mar 1, 2015 at 17:51
  • Does this question qualify for meta site or hinduism SE?

  • The physical book published by Bhaktivedanta Book Trust contains four Gitamahatmyas translated in Bengali - 1)by Sri Shankaracharya, 2)from Skanda Purana, Avanti Khanda, 3)from Vaishnabiya-tantra-sara and 4)from Padma Purana, Uttar Khanda. Fourth one is a semantic translation without sanskrit verses. So my question is partially answered.

Atlast I got a physical copy of authentic book of Padmapurana with both Sanskrit verses and corresponding Bengali translations. It matches with the English version I uploaded earlier. I have scanned & uploaded the relevant portion here as I reasonably feel the copyright has expired. Gradually I have uploaded the contents in Unicode Bengali in my Hindu religious blog. So my main question is now fully answered. Thank you Keshav'ji for helping me get the answer. The complete reference is:- "Padmapuran, Uttarkhanda (Bengali)" by Veda Vyas, translated by Sri Tarakanta Debasharrma, Krishnadas Shastri and Sriramdas Shastri, edited by Pandit Panchanan Tarkaratna. Bangabasi-Electro-machine edition, 1915. Published & printed by Sri Natabar Chakraborty for Bangabasi Karyalay, 38/2 Bhabanicaran Datta Street, Kolkata. First Nababharat Edition, 2013 (with identical page layout). Nababharat Publishers, 72 D, Mahatma Gandhi Road, Kolkata-700009. 1062p.


Apparently this ZIP file contains a Bengali translation of the Padma Purana in PDF format; I can't tell, because I can't read either Bengali or Devanagari script. Also, the Bhagavad Gita Mahatmya of the Padma Purana is available in Bengali as a physical book here.
