SRI BRHAD-BHAGAVATAMRTAM - PART 1, 2ND CLASS

19 May, 2015
Watch the class here

I have discussed the first part of Sri Sri Brhad Bhagavatamrtam composed by Srila Sanatana Gosvami, and I also explained that in the Brhad Bhagavatamrtam there are two parts, one part glorifies about the devotees of Lord, and that’s the history of Narada Rsi, and the other part glorifies the devotion (Bhakti), and that is Gopa Kumar katha.

I have also told in the previous class that Narada Rsi came in the very super excellent and auspicious place, Prayaga Tirtha, where three rivers meet together Ganga, Yamuna and Sarasvati, and at that time he saw one poor brahman that used to worship his Thakurji Salagram. Narada Rsi told him, “You are the best recipient of the mercy of Lord”, then the brahman told, “I’m not the recipient of the mercy of Lord; if you want to see the best recipient of the mercy of Lord you should go to south India, and you will see that there is a king which worships the Lord with all his wealth and money”, this is called royal seva (rajakiya seva). 

Then Narada Rsi arrived in south India where he saw the king and how he served his Thakurji with all of his wealth and money; this is called raja seva, royal service. Then the king told, “I’m not the best recipient of the mercy of Lord (bhagavat krpa patra), if you want to see the best recipient of the mercy of Lord, then you should go to heaven; Indra is the best recipient of the mercy of Lord”.
