A Critical Study Of Mahabhagavadpuranam"The Mahabhagavadpuranam is a Sakta Upapurana, advocating the Sakta tradition with aSaiva tendency and is composed with a view to extolling the Devi - the MotherPrinciple - by narrating her exploits. It is very clear that this Upapurana hasbeen inspired by diverse religious sects, but surprisingly, follows the Vedantictraditions of the unity of all the gods/goddesses, though its major inclinationis towards Siva and it is influenced by the Tantras. This catholicity or open-mindedattitude is the special quality of this Upapurana and it hastranscended far beyond sectarian rigidity. The present book makes a criticalstudy of this sacred text in detail."
