Veda Vyasa wrote the four Vedas, the 18 Puranas, the Upanisads, and the
Vedanta-sutra. Shankaracharya also accepted that and so did Tejomayananda
swami of the Chinmaya mission.

	O greatest of all sages of all times, WHO gave you or anyone
	else the authority to decide what is lame and what is NOT lame???

For others except this  -MORON-  Vidyasankar Sundaresan, 

Tejomayananda swami sited also cited a verse telling that Sri Veda Vyasa
was an incarnation of Narayana himself!!  If one RASCAL rejects one of the
writings of Veda Vyasa as lame based upon some concocted logic, another RASCAL
can reject all of his other writings as lame using the same concocted logic.
Where does this leaves us??

and here is a verse from Srimad Bhagvatam which authenticates the Puranas,

	'itihasa-puranam ca pancamo veda ucyate' (SB 1.4.20), 

	i.e. the Puranas and the histories such as Mahabharata, are 
	known as the fifth Veda.

However, devoid of all faith and their minds taken over by false pride,
these advaitans have the audacity to pass judgement on the writings of
Sri Veda Vyasa, which are the very foundation of the Sanatana dharma.

For those who don't know, here is the verses from Padmapurana in question,
(Lord Shiva personally telling this to his wife) 
                srnu devi paraksyami, tamasani yatha karman 
                yesan sravana-matrena, patitayam jnaninam api 

                apartham sruti-vakyanam, darsayal loka-garhitam 
                karma-svarupa-tyajyatvam, atra ca pratipadyate 

                sarva-karma-paribhramsan, naiskarmayam tatra cocyate 
                paratma-jivayor aikyam, mayatra pratipadyate 

        "My dear devi, sometimes I teach the non-dualistic philosophy for 
         those who are engrossed in the mode of ignorance (tamasa).  But if 
         a person in the mode of goodness (sato-guna) happens to hear this 
         philosophy of non-dualism (advaita), he falls down, for when teaching
         this philosophy, I say that the living entity and the Supreme
         Lord are one and the same."

Most Vedic scholars accept Shankaracharya as the incarnation of Lord Shiva 
but even if that is not true, it is rather foolish to try to say that a 
Purana is a lame work.
