Hearing, reading, reciting Varaha Purana destroys one?s sins, liberates one and assuages the mind?s sufferings. It also yields sons and grandsons. When Varaha Purana is heard in a ?Teertha? it bestows much greater ?punya? than received by hearing it at any other place.˙

Reading one chapter of the Varaha Purana grants the same amount of ?Punya? as can be obtained by donating to a Brahmin a healthy cow. One gets the reward received by performing a huge yagya (sacrifice) if one reads ten chapters of this Purana. He who reads, listens or arranges the recital of this Purana becomes beloved of Lord Narayana immediately.
