OK, all Pauranikas, please hear.
I have a BIG doubt.
Mahabharata and Bhagavatam. both have some stories in common:
Kurukshetra War (Bhima Duryodhana fight)
Like these. But, when i read both the versions, the Bhagavatam versions differ A LOT from the Mahabharata versions.
SO MB events are as follows:
Balarama sees BHima Duryodhan war; gets angry at cheating and leaves in a huff
BHima takes the jewel
Parikshit is dead, Krsna revives him
DGK (maybe V also) go to forest
Pandavas along with Draupadi go to HImalayas and attain Swarga
Pariksit is cursed; he gets scared and builds an inaccessible tower; but somehow Takshaka finds him and kills him
Balarama tries to persuade them to not fight, but since they don't listen, he leaves disheartened
Arjuna takes the jewel
Parikshit is defended in the womb itself by Krsna
Only DG go to forest; Kunti dies after hearing KRsna's death and Vidura goes to Maitreya Rishi
Pandavas leave Draupadi behind and go to Vaikuntha and Draupadi reaches there by dhyana
Pariksit is cursed. He leaves everything behind and goes to GAnga Teera and listens to BHagavatam
And, other than one line of a sloka spoken by Arjuna, NOWHERE else there is reference of Bhagavad Gita!!
PLease can someone tell why so many differences? Is it because of different Kalpas?
