Introduction to “Gems from Srimad Bhagavatam” 
 
Srimad Bhagavatam is one of the eighteen sacred books of Hindu Mythology(Puranas). This contains all the basic principles of philosophy interspersed withvarious stories of Lord’s incarnations on this earth and those of His devotees – allextolling the glories of the Supreme Lord. This text is a rare combination of all theprincipal paths for God-realisation namely; Bhakti (Love and devotion), Jnana(Knowledge), Yoga and Karma (rituals).The importance of Srimad Bhagavatam can be gauged from the following storywhich occurs in “Srimad Bhagavata Mahatmyam”.Lord Krishna was a perfect incarnation of Supreme Lord on this earth, with aview to re-establish love, compassion, justice, faith and other Divine Laws(Dharma) by destroying the demoniac elements which were threatening toovercome the world. After completing this task, Lord Krishna confided to Uddhava,his close friend, devotee and minister, about his intention to leave the body andmerge back in the Supreme Divinity. Uddhava was shocked and pointed out thatvarious devotees had adopted him as their centre of meditation and wereaccustomed to concentrate on the vision of his lovely form as the very SupremeBeing. If Krishna were to relinquish his body, the devotees being unaware of hisimmortality would be shocked and all the Sadhanas done by them so far and theirfaith will get shattered and rendered futile. They would not be able to bear thisseparation caused by the bereavement. Lord Krishna devised a plan to counter thissituation. He infused his powers in the form of Sound Energy into each word andverse in Srimad Bhagavatam in such a way that his divine presence in all its glorycan be felt and perennially experienced by the devotees who would recite theverses or hear them. Thus Bhagavatam has the unique privilege of impartingdirectly the vibrations of the manifested Supreme Being in the form of the soundenergy. Here are a few selections from that wonderful book.Swami Shantatnanda PuriLucknow, 5th March 2010
