In this episode, Swamiji continues to introduce the listeners to Srimad Bhagavatam.
We are told about Suka Deva who narrated Srimad Bhagavatam to Pareekshit for seven days by which he became immersed in his Self. Swamiji makes a comparison to Arjuna in the battlefield who listened to Sri Krishna’s gospel and regained the strength to fight.
Why has Swamiji taken up Bhagavatam as the subject for exposition? Swamiji says that 80% of Srimad Bhagavatam consists of deep spirituo-philosophical elements. The profound truths conveyed in Upanishads, Brahma Sutras and Bhagavad Gita are also conveyed in Srimad Bhagavatam. The author Vyasadeva has exhibited amazing mastery in presenting the text. He has magically blended and intertwined devotion with Shastric elements.

Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
