  • Bhagavata purana is not written for those in mood of goodness, but for everyone.

    Anyway, those who classify transcendental Srimad Bhagavatam based on material mods of nature doing offence to Lord and His devotees.

      The above classification is made by the topmost vaishnana and mahajana Lord Shiva himself to mother Parvathi.  The below verses are taken from Padma Purana Uttara Khanda 236.18 - 20.

      vaishnavam naradiyam cha
      tatha bhagavatam shubham
      garudam cha tatha padmam
      varaham shubha-darshane
      sattvikani puranani
      vijneyani shubhani vai

      "O beautiful one, the Vishnu Purana, the Narada Purana, the auspicious Bhagavata Purana, and the Garuda, Padma, and Varaha Puranas all belong to the mode of goodness. They are all considered auspicious.

      brahmandam brahma-vaivartam
      markandeyam tathaiva cha
      bhavishyam vamanam brahmam
      rajasani nibodhata

      "Know that the Brahmanda, Brahma-vaivarta, Markandeya, Bhavishya, Vamana, and Brahma Puranas belong to the mode of passion.

      matsyam kaurmam tatha laingam
      shaivam skandam tathaiva cha
      agneyam cha shad etani
      tamasani nibodhata

      "And know that these six Puranas belong to the mode of ignorance: the Matsya, Kurma, Linga, Shiva, Skanda, and Agni Puranas.

      The result of reading Purana has also been mentioned by Lord SHiva as below 

      satvika moksadah prokta 
      rajasah sarvadashubhah 
      tathaiva tamasa devi niraya prapti hetavah
      tathaiva smrtayah prokta trsibhis trigunanvitah

      Sattvika Puranas are said to give liberation, rajasika Puranas is everything inauspicious and tamasika Puranas cause one to go to hell, oh Devi!. Thus they should be remembered as endowed by three gunas. - Padma Purana Uttara Khanda 236.21-22

       

      ata uktam skande shanmukham prati sri-sivena
      siva-sastresu tad grahyam
      bhagavac-chastra-yogi yat
      paramo visnur evaikas
      taj jnanam moksa-sadhanam
      sastranam nirnayas tv
      esas tad anyan mohanaya hi. iti.

      The statements of the Siva scriptures should be accepted only when they agree with the Visnu scriptures. Lord Visnu is the only Supreme Lord, and knowledge of Him is the path to liberation. That is the conclusion of all the scriptures. Any other conclusions are meant only to bewilder the people."  - Lord Siva to Karttikeya - Skanda Purana

    • matsya kurma are incarnations of Krishna! how are they in mode of ignorance?? and what is the content that makes it for ignorant?? any idea sir?

        Hare Krsna 

        Puranas r not in mode of ignorance. Modes of material nature don't act on scriptures, they act on living entities. Each scripture gives instructions to elevate our consciousness. The level of instructions, the purpose etc will be different for different scriptures depending on what the people can accept & follow. Even I am not aware of the content of these other puranas. But Vishnu, Padma, SB etc focus on devotional service. Other scriptures may not emphasize so much on devotional service, which is the highest most fulfilling engagment.
