Help needed with the Devi-Bhagavata purana

I recently bought the Devi-Bhagavata purana from amazon. It has been translated into English by Swami Vijnanananda wich was a direct disciple from Ramakrishna but i have doubts that it is correct. I will give 2 examples. If the translation is true than how can Shaktas follow it?

example 1 from chapter 3

18-24. At every Manvantara, in each Dvâpara Yuga, Veda Vyâsa expounds the Purânas

duly to preserve the religion. Veda Vyâsa is no other person than Visnu Himself; He, in the

form of Veda Vyâsa, divides the (one) Veda into four parts, in every Dvâpara Yuga, for the

good of the world. The Brahmânas of the Kali age are shortlived and their intellect (Buddhi)

is not sharp; they cannot realise the meaning after studying the Vedas; knowing this in every

Dvâpara Yuga Bhagavân expounds the holy Purâna Samhitas. The more so because

women, S’udras, and the lower Dvijas are not entitled to hear the Vedas; for their good, the

Purânas have been composed.

example 2 from chapter 4

15-27. There is no prospect in the after birth of the sonless; never, never will Heaven be his.

Without son, there is none other who can be of help in the next world. Thus in the Dharma

S’âstras, Manu and other Munis declare that the man who has sons goes to Heaven and the

sonless one can never go to Heaven. The man possessing a son is entitled to the Heavenly

pleasures can be vividly seen, rather than imagined. The man with son is freed from sins;

this is the word of the Vedas. The sonless man becomes very much distressed even at the

time of death and while lying on bed that is ground at that time, mournfully thinks. “This all

my vast wealth, various things, this my beautiful house, who will enjoy all these?”

Bhagavata Purana(8.18.5) says Lord Vishnu took birth as Vamana on Shravana Dvadashi. This is exactly the time of Uthradom (Onam Eve). The Onam festival is celebrated for four days until Purnima. Even South Indian tradition agrees that Onam marks birth of Lord Vishnu as Vamana https://t.co/eftD twitter.com/tiinexile/sta…

Yes, it is true that Shri Radha Rani is not mentioned in Mahabharata and Bhagavata Purana. But that doesn't mean her worship is a modern fabrication. There is a 6th century image of Radha and Krishna. She is mentioned in several Puranas and Adi Shankaracharya also mentions her https://t.co/iQpGiI twitter.com/tiinexile/sta…

Is it true that Sri Ramanujacharya ji never quoted from Srimad Bhagavata Purana? Also, any info on what the first Purana written was?

I've heard various conflicting theories about what "the original Purana" was (I think Vishnu Purana is one of the strong candidates?) but I don't know much about the evidence presented for each theory. For those of you who are familiar with Sri Ramanujacarya ji's writings, is it true he didn't quote from Srimad Bhagavatam? If so, why or why not would that suggest that this great Purana wasn't written by that time?

I'm primarily interested in disinterested arguments from history backed up by evidence, rather than traditional beliefs and word-of-mouth, though all perspectives are welcome.

Buying Gold on Akshaya Tritiya is a SIN according to Srimad Bhagavata Purana

I was curious about the hype around Akshay Tritiya and buying gold and found out that it’s a pure marketing gimmick played out by the gold vendors and businessmen. Nowhere it’s written that it’s auspicious to buy gold on AkshayTritiya on the contrary it’s forbidden to do 5 things on AkshayTritiya as well as every day if possible (but the sins get multiplied if carried out on this day as explained by Parikshit Maharaj placing Kali in the 5 places in Srimad Bhagavata Purana, 1st Skandha)

  1. Gambling
  2. Consuming Alcohol
  3. Indulging in Sex
  4. Consuming Meat
  5. Buying Gold

Were considered even more greater sins on this auspicious day of birth of Parasurama, 6th Avatar of Lord Vishnu

The gold merchants and traders started spreading fake news about the unlimited or un-diminished(Akshaya) returns if gold is purchased on this day, they also started attributing Gold to Goddess Lakshmi as a pure marketing gimmick whereas it was mentioned in Puranas that Goddess of Wealth Lakshmi is only in the following places/things:

  1. The face of an elephant with its trunk in upright position
  2. The forehead with Sindhoor between the division of hair of a woman
  3. A Lotus flower

From the Dasama-skandha(Tenth canto) of the Bhagavata Purana

gadha-vari-caras tapam
avindan charad-arka-jam
yatha daridrah kripanah
kutumby avijitendriyah

Just as a miserly, poverty-stricken person overly absorbed in family life suffers because he cannot control his senses, the fish swimming in the shallow water had to suffer the heat of the autumn sun.

sarva-svam jalada hitva
virejuh subhra-varcasah
yatha tyaktaishanah santa
munayo mukta-kilbishah

The clouds, having given up all they possessed, shone forth with purified effulgence, just like peaceful sages who have given up all material desires and are thus free of all sinful propensities.

These verses were from a section describing autumn in the village of Vrindavana.
