The significance of the Puranas and Upapuranas and their stories is known to any Indian worldwide.

The eternal story in which Mahavishnu (one of the three Parmatama expansions) gets extremely tired while material creation. And thus He gave us Amla, (gooseberry) which is a medicine for jiva's overexertion, is also very important in Indian ancient cultural practices nationwide.

Question: which Mahavishnu does this, Kaaranodsayi Mahavishnu or Garbhodsayi Mahavishnu??

  • In the Vishnu purana there are 2 Vishnu's described and their names are not explicitly mentioned hence most hindus reject the Gaudiya Vaishnava theory about them. – Wikash_ Mar 10 at 6:18
  • @Wikash_ ask them do they also reject srimad Bhagvatam Mahapurana?? In the Bhagvatam there is a complete explaination of all the three parmatama expansions of Narayan; – user30612 Mar 10 at 22:46

    Just one and not three of the Gaudiya Vaishnavas. – Wikash_ Mar 14 at 10:14

    @Wikash_ What do you mean regarding correctness of Shastras? Shastras are correct but unable to prove or Suras are wrong. – Pandya Mar 18 at 14:56
