Abstract: The present paper aims to present a first translation into Italian of "Nirañjaner uṣmā", the last chapter of the Bengali "Śūnya Purāṇa". Through a deep analysis of the text and its historical and religious contents, I shall show the evolution of the god Dharma Ṭhākur in the Islamic environment and his transformation into Nirañjana. As Nirañjana is a quite common title in Bengali Sufism, proofs will be produced to validate such a transformation. Finally, particular emphasis will be given on textual material in order to identify a correct approach to the composition date of "Śūnya Purāṇa".
