Bhavishya Purana

Bhavishya Purana is an ancient historical text written in Sanskrit language in which the future events are foretold. This is the eleventh scripture among the eighteen puranas or important ancient texts and assumed to have written by the prominent sage Veda Vyasa. Bhavishya Purana is considered as a treasure of knowledge where the prophecies and information are presented marvelously. Though this text was written thousands of years back, the events mentioned in it are already happened. Because of the possession of supernatural powers, Rishi Vyasa could foresee the written events in advance. This narration is considered as an attempt from his side to set up the pre-eminence of ‘Brahma’, the almighty. According to certain scholars, some of the contents of this saga are from the ancient law book of Manu.
