"srimad bhagvatam" and "srimad bhagvat maha puran" is the same scripture or two different scriptures?

"srimad bhagvatam" was written by vedvyasa
 n bhagvat was written by his son shukdeva is it true?

Srimad Bhagavatham was written by Maharishi Veda Vyasa. 

It was narrated by his son Shukhdev to Parikshit. 

The entire Bhagavatham, including the incident of Shukhdeva narrating to Parikshit, was recounted by Sage Suta to the other sages, in the forests of Naimisharanya.

gita govina n skanda purana, brahma vaivarta purana were not written during lord krishna's lifetime or recently after his life time.

lord krishna lived 5000 yrs ago. these purans have been written during 11-12 century n some r only 5hundred yr old.

FYI, Skanda Puran and Brahma Vaivrata Puran were not  written 11-12 century. They are  far older than 500 years. Gita Govinda was composed in the 12 century, but we consider it as a poetic work, not a Purana. 

how can person living in 11-12 century know what happend with lord krishna's life 5 thousand years ago.

Who lived in the 11-12 century?  Vyasa? Garga??  Shocked Once again, FYI, Vyasa and Garga existed  in the Dwapara Yuga 

Jayadeva did during the 11-12 century , and  he based his work (Gita Govinda)  on the customs and beliefs prevailing in his area at that time. As an aside,  it is believed that when he was composing the 19th  ashtapadi, "Vadasi Yadi Kinchitapi...", Lord Krishna himself came and completed it.

these purans have many mythological stories.which r life fictonal stories of movies.

we should not belive them. they r not authentic.

Just curious, what should we believe in then?

we we write some stroy baout krishna today than after 1-2 thousand years people will think it is tru n add it ot the story of krishna n make another film on that..
 
If your story survives for one or two thousand years, then it surely deserves to be made into a movie.  Why don't you try ?

please tell me when was brahma vaivarta purana, skanda purana written n by whom?

did garga or vyasa wrote these puranas?

i will write some stories from purans...

1)if you think all stories in purana are true,than you have to belive that, according to brahma purana ,lord brahma got sexually attracted to his daughter sarasswati ...(read brahma purana)

 if somebody ask you what kind of god is your brahma who got attracted to his daughter?
than please keep your answer ready...

2)another puranic story says ganesh was eatign too much so moon laughed on him. so on ganesh chaturthi we dont see the moon...

this story make us feel as if our ansectors didnt have any knowledge of science..

but  vedas have proved that our developed vedic civilization was very much developed in science n technology...

vedas are the oldest text known to mankind.

there are many examples...

look at the sun temples,suns's chariot has seven horses which symbolises sevel colors...
it means our ancestors knew that sun rays has seven colors...much before some western scintist proved it.

aap apne desh me tees maar khan ho sakte ho...but if you go outside your country than people ask questions about these stories of purana,...its a very embarassing situation...



There are two elements involved here - One -your personal beliefs. If you are comfortable believing that Krishna was husband only to Rukmini, that's fine. I have no problems in believing in the sanctity of the Rasa Leela or the fact that he had 16008 wives, that's fine too. This is each one's way of interpreting the scriptures and is based on his / her belief, extent of spirituality, etc.  

And it is also true that scholars and commentators have repeatedly said that the stories in Puranas have layers and layers of meaning and are not simply to be taken on their face value.

The second point is about answering questions from others. For instance the incident of Krishna stealing the Gopis' clothes (and how he gave them back) can be repulsive to some, if taken literally. But obviously there are meanings and truths hidden behind this seemingly  perverted story- if only we take out the time to understand and discover them. So if someone does question us, we need not feel embarrassed, all we need to do is provide the spiritual significance underlying them
 
The third point here is how do we understand the spiritual significance implied in such stories ? The answer recommended by past masters  is read and meditate. Keep reading and keep meditating. Depending on the extent of your spiritual involvement, answers will be revealed to you.

I've moved these posts from the Krishna's clan topics to here, since that thread was more for discussing the actual history of his family.  For discussions about the scriptures, let's just do that here.
