Glories of Vedic Scriptures: Glories of Srimad Bhagavatam

                                                                  Q. I recently heard the story of Lord Yamaraj cursed by a Sage to be born as Sri Vidura. When the Sage heard from Yama-dharmaraj that his child-hood mistakes caused the Sage to undergo much suffering, the sage got angry and cursed. {Editor's note: The reference is to the history of Manduka Muni, see SB 1.13.1 purport}

                                                                  Q. While reading Srimad Bhagavatam (Canto 1, Ch 4) I read that Srila Vyasdeva was not satisfied at heart although he finished compiling the 4 vedas, Mahabharat, 108 Upanishads, puranas & Vedanta Sutras. The reason is also given: "He did not glorify the Supreme Personality of Godhead & pure devotional service."
                                                                  My questions:

                                                                  Q. In Srimad Bhagavatam 1st canto 5th chapter, Srila Prabhupada says that Vedanta-sutra is the complete deliberation on the impersonal Brahman and yet he also says that Srimad Bhagavatam, which is purely Personal is the natural commentary. How to reconcile this two apparently contradicting statements?

                                                                  Q. My question is a follow up to an answer in this last digest: "Krishna promises to forgive and deliver all sinful reactions of those who surrender to Him exclusively."

                                                                  Q. Some of the stories in the Bhagavatam are like Sci Fi or Fantasy novels. How do we know they were not just made up by man, legends based on good spiritual ideas to give us spiritual knowledge in a way the culture at the time could understand. I believe there is a God, I believe without doubt there is an after life and reincarnation to help us grow spiritually. I do not believe karma is a punishment or a reward but a way to grow spiritually. I do not believe in transmigration because what would be the point ...

                                                                  Q. In the Srimad Bhagavatam - Third Canto, Chapter 15: Description of the Kingdom of God - we find some verses and purports with language I find problematic. For example, SB 3.15.17: "In the Vaikuntha planets the inhabitants fly in their airplanes, accompanied by their wives and consorts, and eternally sing of the character and activities of the Lord."
