I am interested in reading the various Puranas. I have pdf files of a few Puranas, namely the Markendeya Purana, Kalki Purana, and the Shrimad Bhagavatam. In this stack exchange post (Are there any other Puranas that predict Adi Shanakaracharya besides the Bhavishya Purana?) I found a link to the 30th chapter of the Kurma Purana. The link is given by the following: https://www.hinduscriptures.in/Content/Articles/PDFs/30601/79_chapter_30.pdf.

I visited the site https://www.hinduscriptures.in, but I am unable to find pdf documents of the Puranas. I also tried truncating the link to no avail. For instance, I entered https://www.hinduscriptures.in/Content/Articles/PDFs but received the following message:

"403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied."

What should I do? How should I navigate this website to get access to the pdfs? Please kindly let me know.
