The Bhagavata Purana also known as the Bhagavatamahapuranam, Śrīmad Bhāgavatam, Srimad Bhagavata Mahapurana, or simply Bhāgavata, is one of Hinduism’s 18 great Puranas (or Mahapuranas, meaning ‘great histories’).
Originally composed in Sanskrit, this most studied, popular, revered, and influential Purana is an epic Vaishnava poem consisting of 18,000 shlokas (or verses) over 12 skandhas (or cantos). Its interconnected and interwoven narratives, teachings, and explanations focus on the forms (or avatars) of Vishnu particularly Krishna as the ultimate, primeval, transcendental source of the multiverse (including the demigods ) – as well as the lives of his greatest devotees. In the purana Krishna is considered to be the eighth and the complete avatar of Vishnu.
