1923. Other volumes in this set include ISBN number(s): 0766181685. Vol. 1 of 2 Contains Books 1-6. What the Srimad Bhagavat is to the Vaisnavas, the Devi Bhagavatam is to the Sakatas. The question of the priority of the two Bhagavatas has been often discussed more in the spirit of partisans rather than that of sober scholars. Sri Bhagavan Veda Vyasa first composed one Puranam only. From this, the three disciples of his, Lomaharsana and two others, compiled the three other Samhitas. So at first these four Puranas were extant. From these four Puranas, the eighteen Maha Puranas were written. And long after this many other Upa-Puranas came into appearance. That the Puranas were collected and compiled from the original Adi Purana Samhita can easily be traced if each Puranam be read attentively. Volume 2 ISBN0766181685.
