Book Description

Some hold that Bhagavata is a Maha Purana and Devi Bhagavata is an Uppurana, while others think vise versa. Similar is the case with the Vayu Purana and the Shiva Purana. We are not indulging ourselves in this discussion and only say that though the number is said to be eighteen but there are twenty books (Puranas) which come under the title of Mahapuranas. The Devi Bhagavata, though praises Devi as the highest deity, the study of this Purana reveals that at the time of its composition the most prominent deities were, Vishnu, Shiva, Ganesha and Devi. The devotees were also called as Vaishnavas, Shaivas, Ganapatyas and Shaktas respectively. Thus the author of the Devi Bhagavata advocates the unity of all the gods, saying that all these gods are one and the same in reality. This Purana, as its name indicates, deals with the praise of Devi as the highest deity and the energy of all gods and others. This Purana gives respect to each and every deity, the supreme position but he gives Devi, the life and energy of all. It is very important for synthesizing the various sects and philosophies of India.
