Sri Brhad Bhagavatamrta, Volume One

Part One: Finding the Essence of the Supreme Lord's Mercy
by Sanatana Goswami

Widowed Uttara, feeling the impending loss of her only son, Parikshit Maharaja, asks him to teach her the essence of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, (Bhagavata Purana) which he has just heard from the great spiritual master Shukadeva Goswami. The Brihad Bhagavatamrita is Parikshit’s caring reply.

Sri Brihad Bhagavatamrita is an exposition of the

Srimad-Bhagavatam. All the knowledge and devotion laid out in the

Bhagavatam is presented through an intricate story of two souls’

journey toward spiritual perfection.

Narada Muni is on quest to find the greatest recipient of Lord

Krishna’s mercy. And Gopa Kumara is on a quest to find Lord Krishna


The hero’s quest for the extraordinary, a recurring theme in

literature, reflects the urge of every heart at its noblest to discover

the full possibilities of life. Anyone dissatisfied with the scant

potential of mundane existence will rise in hope and excitement by

reading of Narada Muni’s journey to many planets in the universe to

find the person who has received Krishna’s (God’s) greatest mercy.

“Analogous in some respects to Dante’s Paradiso and more closely akin to John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, it depicts not one but two parallel spiritual odysseys.”
