Please accept my humble obeisance. All glories to Srila Prabhupada,
Shiva Purana/ Shiva Mahapurana teaches us something different about Krsna.
The Shiva Purana was recited by Vedavyasa’s disciple Romaharshana, alternatively, Loma-harshana.
There it is written "For sixteen months Krishna had to pray before Shiva appeared, to grant the boon regarding the son. Parvati also granted Krishna several boons."
My question is that,
1. Is this Vedavyasa is one who wrote different Vedic Scriptures like Veda, Purana, Srimad Bhagvatam etc.?
2. How far is "Shiva Purana" is practical or authentic?
3. How Lord Shiva appeared from Lord Vishnu?
I am really eager to know the answer. Please someone highlight on this. Please forgive me if my question hurts anyone. But really I am so curious to know the answer.
Just your Servant
