Srimad-Bhagavatam, an epic classic of philosophy and literature, holds a prominent position in India’s voluminous written wisdom.
The timeless wisdom of India is expressed in the Vedas, ancient Sanskrit texts. Originally preserved through oral tradition, the Vedas were first put into writing by the sage Srila Vyasadeva.
After compiling the Vedas however, Vyasadeva told his spiritual teacher that he felt strangely empty despite completing such a monumental task. His preceptor replied that he needed to explore more pure and spiritual topics, especially knowledge of Krishna. Inspired, Vyasadeva compiled only the most profound essence of the Vedas to create the Srimad-Bhagavatam. Srimad-Bhagavatam is the most complete and authoritative exposition of Vedic knowledge, covering everything from the nature of the self to the origin of the universe.
The first verse of Srimad-Bhagavatam makes clear that because the book is intended for people serious about spiritual progress, it will not deal with sectarian religious ideas, philosophical conjecture, or worldly concerns. The second text promises that anyone who reads the book systematically will achieve the spiritual success meant for all human beings.
