"Advaita" in the Bhagavatam[edit]

The section on "Advaita" in the Bahgavatam is highly controversial considering that the Bhagavatam is used by Vaisnavas to attack Advaitism. Commentators on Bhagavatam have also noted that because of its strong support of the personhood of Godhead that Sankaracarya did not comment on the Bhagavatam. A much better explanation of any so-called "advaita" found in the Bhagavatam is explained in the Achintya Bheda Abheda tattva doctrine of the Gaudiya Sampradaya.van Lustig (talk) 09:53, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

Using atheists as authorities on the Bhagavatam[edit]

What I find tragi-comical is that most of the referenced citations are from atheists for a text that is clearly theistic. What is their qualification for understanding it?van Lustig (talk) 10:09, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

@Sam van lustig: Please see WP:RS, then explain your concern with the cited secondary and tertiary sources by well established professors and reputed university-press publishers. Please be careful in casting aspersions or defaming living scholars, as that is not allowed in wikipedia, including this or other talk pages. Ms Sarah Welch (talk) 13:32, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

This is complete nonsense. Sam is right. Atheists even if they own 20 PhDs are not competent to comment on any theistic text what to speak of the Bhagavata. Anyway now we know that you are a sphincter. And why I stopped linking to wiki-demons long ago. I often see people being disparaged for using wikipedia as a reference and it will only get worse. The don't call it wiki$h1t for nothing. 49.206.8.79 (talk) 09:07, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Kalloodwivedi (talk) 17:58, 5 March 2017 (UTC) it is most holy book written by Ved Vyas originally in Sanskrit . it talks about salvation in Indian philosophy. within limited time ie. 7 days how can a person get salvation. in brief it narrates all avtars of Narayan ie. there is story of lord Vishnu. lord narayan lord kapil lord narsigh lord rama, lord krishna etc and his main devotees. there is confluence o knowledge and devotion , traditions of all hindu sector are given equal importance.a person get salvation by love and devotion by dedication. the story of child krishna is attracting .in nutshell Naraian is omnipresent omnipotent . he kind and generous.one should seek his asylum with full belief and faith. do not bother . move towards lord krishna he will give heavenly and worldly pleasure. i myself experienced it. kalloo prasad dwivedi lucknow.

Heliodorus could be the real author of Bhagavata Purana[edit]

From 'A History of Ancient and Early Medieval India: From stone age to 12th century by Upendra Singh' "The Besnagar pillar inscription indicates that the Shungas(Shunga dynasty) continued the Maurya tradition of entertaining ambassadors from Greek courts. Kasiputa Bhagabhadra is identified as the fifth Shunga king Bhadraka or ninth king Bhagavata. Amtalakita was the Indo-Greek ruler Antialkidas, known from coins. What is more even interesting is that Heliodorus, the Greek ambassador, describes himself as Bhagavata - i.e., a worshipper of God Vasudeva Krishna, and he set up this pillar in the honour of this God. The Garuda is a fantastic bird, the vehicle of Vishnu. The foundations of a structure near the pillar no doubt represent remains of the ancient Temple in front of which the Greek ambassador left an inscribed record of his devotion."

Some of the non-Indian writers have mentioned in the book that the Krishna (of Bhagavata Purana) has similarities with Greek God Apollo.

Mahabhagavata Purana[edit]

I have redirected Mahabhagavata Purana - that (unsourced) article appears to be another title for this work, but I am not certain of that. Can somebody please verify? power~enwiki (π, ν) 22:37, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
