The Srimad Bhagwat itself is believed to be the gem among all the sacred Puranas as it emphasizes on the devotion to Lord Vishnu’s incarnation, Lord Krishna. It is believed to have been authored by the great sage Vedavyasa when he felt a great unrest troubling his soul after authoring the Mahabharat.
Although this Purana itself is believed to be a part of Skanda Purana, it is its lyrical beauty and devotion to Krishna that made it most popular. It enlists 22 incarnations of Lord Vishnu, while other sacred accounts of the Sanatana dharma believe that there were nine incarnations and one is yet to come.
