Vyasadeva’s Invitation to Study Srimad Bhagavatam
This seminar is an exploration of Srimad Bhagavatam’s first verse, which encapsulates the contents of the entire text. Therein the divine origin of the world is indicated; the Absolute Truth is described as an eternal sentient being; the plurality of the jivas is established; the characteristics of the Supreme Lord are outlined; and the method to reach Him is given. The presentation is designed to instill interest, taste and determination for the systematic study and teaching of Srimad Bhagavatam, which is the very means of conquest. We invite you to answer Srila Vyasadeva’s call to all awakening souls to join him in his worship of the Supreme Lord in His sound incarnation. A philosophical, yet highly devotional entry.
