    As far as I know, ISKCON doesn't understand it to interpolated. But ISKCON accept Srimad Bhagavatam as final conclusion of all Vedas, and Upanishads, and Puranas. Also as per verse in Padma Purana, there is division of Purana based on modes of material nature, Sattva, Rajas, and Tamo Guna, that is for people predominantly in that modes of material nature. But Srimad Bhagavatam to transcendental and above or beyond all material things. – Hare Krishna May 26 at 13:48

    A sect is to be based on a scripture always. You're basically asking , equivalently, why Hindus follow the Vedas and not the Bible. It's all about ideologies and beliefs. – peace May 26 at 14:01
  • Iskcon follows gudiya parampara/ sampradaya where Srimad Bhagavatam is considered the highest of all scriptures as so claimed by Lord Shi Chaitnya Mahaprabhu who was an Yuga Avatar of Sri Krishna himself. Iskcon does refer scriptures like Vishnu Purana, Skand Puran and other satvik Purans which are followed in the Sampradaya. – Religious Believers May 26 at 14:23
  • Well, the Bhagavatam is the self-prophesied greatest Purana. Without anything to the contrary, I don't see why not to believe that. – Aupakarana Abhibhaa May 26 at 21:21

    @PashamVishnuVardhanGoud The other puranas are not a waste. Srimad Bhagavatam is just the culmination of all the puranas, for it describes the highest goal of life. – MassEnquirer May 27 at 17:22
