Brahmavaivarta Mahapuranam_Sanskrit

Although a version may have existed in late 1st millennium CE, its extant version was likely composed in the 15th or 16th-century in the Bengal region of Indian subcontinent. The text is notable for identifying Krishna as the supreme Reality and asserting that all gods such as Vishnu , Shiva , Brahma , Ganesha are same, and all are incarnations of Krishna. The mythology and stories of Brahmavaivarta Purana , along with Bhagavata Purana , have been influential to the Krishna-related Hindu traditions, as well as to dance and performance arts such as the Rasa Lila. The extant versions of Brahmavaivarta Purana text are unusual because goddess Radha is not mentioned in most other major Puranas. The text very likely existed much earlier, and the older version likely was complete in the 8th to 10th century period.
