Vamana Purana is placed at serial number fourteen in the list of eighteen Puranas mentioned in various scriptures. But it does not mean that it is of lesser importance than the other Puranas. Although, it is smaller in size, yet it has all the constituents of the other Puranas. Also its style of treatment of the subject matter is clearer and more analytical than the style of other Puranas and Up-puranas.
