Devi Bhagawat Purana

The text is considered a Mahapurana (major Purana) in parts of India, while others include it as one of the Upa Puranas (Minor Puranas), but all traditions consider it as an important Purana. The text consists of twelve  Skandha (sections) with 318 chapters. Along with Devi Mahatmya, it is one of the most important works in Shaktism, a tradition within Hinduism that reveres Devi or  Shakti (Goddess) as the primordial creator of the universe and the Brahman  (ultimate truth and reality). It celebrates the divine feminine as the origin of all existence, the creator, the preserver, and the destroyer of everything, as well as the one who empowers spiritual liberation. While all major Puranas of Hinduism mention and revere the Goddess, this text centers around her as the primary divinity. The underlying philosophy of this text is Advaita Vedanta-style monism combined with devotional worship of Shakti (feminine power).
