SHRIMAD DEVI BHAGAVATAM PURANA

SHRIMAD DEVI BHAGAVATAM PURANA

Śrīmad Devī Bhāgavatam Purāṇa for all Devi bhaktas, devotees of Divine Mother.
This is the most important and ancient Purāṇa for all Śaktas.
Here you can read online Devī Bhāgavatam, translated by Swami Vijñanananda.
A lot work has been done to proofread the old translation, make sure all Sanskrit terms and mantras are written correct and to give some styling for more convenient reading. I believe it is the most complete edition of Devi Bhagavatam Purana online as far I know.
