Thia Purana describes the Devi, the goddess, as the substratum of the universe and as identical with Brahman, the Supreme Being. As the divine mother, she reveals her virat rupa universal form Book 7, Chapter 33 and describes the proper ways for worshiping her: especially the practice of Yoga, Meditation Book 7, Chapter 35 , and Ritual Book 7, Chapter 39 . these are the most important pieces according to me.

The Bhagavata Purana also known as r mad Bh gavatam, or simply Bh gavatam is one of the Maha Puranic texts of Hindu literature, and is Sanskrit for The Book of God . Its primary focus is the process of bhakti yoga, which is Sanskrit for Union with God through devotion for Him , in which Krishna is unequivocally declared to be Svayam Bhagavan. The Bhagavatam takes the form of a story being told by a great rishi known as Suta Goswami, to a host of assembled sages, who ask him questions in regard to the various avatars, or descents of Vishnu within the mortal world. Suta Goswami then relates the Bhagavatam as he has heard it from another sage, called Sukadeva. The language of the Purana closely resembles Vedic which may indicate an early dating or a variety of other possible reasons to resemble the archaic texts. Each section or canto describes specific avatars of Vishnu, beginning with a summary of all avatars in the first canto concluding with description of Krishna as Svayam bhagavan. The tenth and eleventh cantos give detailed accounts of the story of Krishna s appearance and pastimes in Vrindavan, and his instructions to various devotees such as the Uddhava Gita . The final twelfth canto foretells the coming of the age of Kali yuga the current age according to the Hindu cycle of ages , and the eventual destruction of the earthly universe The Bhagavatam contains the following verse in reference to its significance as a Vedantic text: sarva-ved nta-s raṁ hi r -bh gavatam ṣ yate tad-ras mṛ ta-tṛ ptasya n nyatra sy d ratiḥ kvacit r mad Bh gavatam is accepted as the essence of all Vedic literature and Vedantic philosophy. Whoever tastes the transcendental mellow of r mad Bh gavatam is never attracted to any other literature. The Bhagavata Purana is held in the highest esteem by Vedic tradition, Vaishnavism, and Hinduism in general. Within Vaishnavism and many other Hindu traditions , no other Hindu text surpasses the Bhagavata Purana in significance or importance. Hindu tradition maintains that the author of the Bhagavata Purana Veda Vyasa , wrote the Bhagavatam with the intent that it be the summation point of all Vedic literature and philosophy. The Bhagavata Purana is to Vaishnava s and many Hindu s what the Bible is to Christians: the central, and most authoratative, of all Hindu texts. As such, the Bhagavata Purana is sometimes referred to as the real Bible of Krishnaism . The Bhagavata Purana is considered a natural commentary on the Vedanta-sutra and is used as a textual source for all Vaishnava Theology. It is the most celebrated of the Puranas
