Reading Srimad-Bhagavatam

This beautiful Bhagavatam, compiled by the great sage Vyasadeva [in his maturity], is sufficient in itself for God realization. As soon as one attentively and submissively hears the message of the Bhagavatam, by this culture of knowledge the Supreme Lord is established within his heart.—Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.1.2

Srimad-Bhagavatam, spoken shortly after Lord Krishna’s time on earth, is a treatise that explains the science of God in detail, including His creation, His eternal activities, the path to attain Him, and the lives of some of His great devotees.

While the Vedas cover many subjects necessary for human civilization, Srimad-Bhagavatam is a purely transcendental literature whose purpose is to awaken our love for Krishna.

God is the substance or root of all categories, and since Srimad-Bhagavatam deals exclusively and exhaustively with God, one can know the substance of everything as well as the categories by reading this great book.

Srila Prabhupada writes, “By sufficient hearing of Srimad-Bhagavatam, the polluted aim of life, trying to enjoy matter, will subside, and the people will be able to live a peaceful life of knowledge and happiness.”

Patient, respectful, and submissive hearing of Srimad-Bhagavatam is a powerful force in awakening Bhakti.
