I read somewhere that Garuda Purana declares that only three Vaishnava Puranas should be considered authoritative in Kali Yuga. By priority they are:-
- Bhagavata Purana
- Vishnu Purana
- Garuda Purana
This contradicts sattva, tamas and rajas division of puranas done by Padma Purana as Padma Purana declares only Vaishnava Puranas as authentic. Garuda Purana however reduces it to only three puranas.
Is it true?
