HARE KRISHNA, ALL PRABHUJIS AND MATAJIS!
In India, Vedas and Upanisads are regarded as authentic Scriptures by all, but in case of PURANS, their opinions are different.Some of them are saying that the stories which are written in Purans,Mahabharat and Ramayana are imaginary.Some of them are saying that the cosmological descriptions which are written in 'Puran's,Mahabharata and Ramayana are not supported by Veda.
Some Scholars, such as Swami Vivekananda,Swami Dayananda Saraswati etc are saying that our
Purans are not authentic.Some historians (whose books are prescribed as the text books in Schools of West Bengal) are saying that the 'Bhagavad Gita' was later included in the original text of Mahabharata.Our most students of West-Bengal are only familiar with these words of the historians and the scholars (such as Swami Vivekananda).
So, I want to know the original fact from the Devotees.
