In the second book and sixth chapter, the birth of the Pandavas [the family in constant rivalry and conflict with their cousins, the Kauravas, from the Mahabharata epic] is told Rodrigues However, the Devi Bhagavata Purana makes relatively few changes, and avoids direct contradictions with the Mahabharata Brown The question of which of the two Bhagavatas is more genuine is often raised, and many scholars argue over which has more authority.
Puranic works, such as the Devi Bhagavata Purana emerged by the 7th century CE, though many were composed later. Rodrigues , therefore it is a late Purana. There is speculation over its age and its placement as an Upa-Purana versus a Maha-Purana by many scholars, however, at present; it is in the category of an Upa-Purana, despite the conflict.
Mention of Sita, Rama, Laksmana, and Ravana [characters from the Ramayana epic] is made in the third book and twenty-eighth and twenty-ninth chapters. The Ramayana makes no mention of Devi worship by Rama; however, a change made in the Devi Bhagavata Purana is that Rama finds solutions to his problems in Devi worship, due to the goddess-centered worship of the text Brown In the Devi Bhagavata Purana , Rama performs the Navaratra nine night ceremony devoted to Devi , then Devi appears to Rama, informs him of his previous incarnations [he is an avatara of the god Visnu; the birth of the various avataras of Visnu can be found in the fourth book of the Devi Bhagavata Purana ], reveals his purpose to kill Ravana, and promises him the recovery of his kingdom, if Rama continues to worship her Brown The Devi Mahatmya, also known as the Durga Saptasati , is another goddess-centered text that tells of the conception of Devi.

In the Devi Mahatmya , she slays him by crushing him with her foot, impaling him with her spear, and beheading him with her great sword Rodrigues In the Devi Bhagavata Purana , Devi pierces the demon with her trident, and then beheads him with her discus of a thousand spokes.
