There, among the brahmanas, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu listened to the Kurma Purana, wherein was mentioned the chaste woman's narration.
PURPORT
Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura remarks that only two khandas of the Kurma Purana are now available, namely the Purva-khanda and Uttara-khanda. Sometimes it is said that the Kurma Purana contains six thousand verses, but originally the Kurma Purana contained seventeen thousand verses. According to Srimad-Bhagavatam, there are seventeen thousand verses in the Kurma Purana, which is one of the eighteen Maha-puranas. The Kurma Purana is considered the fifteenth of these Maha-puranas.
