Gokarna saves Dhundhukari | Glories of Shrimad Bhagavatham |Benefits of listening to Bhagavatham | Srimad Bhagavatham-05

Man is often misguided by his own senses. The ego of man is one of the most powerful factors that delude him, into wrong actions. Only perfect knowledge and surrender to the topmost value system can redeem man and rectify his actions. The Shrimad Bhagavatham is the perfect scripture that highlights the deficiencies of man and his self-centered actions. It is the very body of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Adhering to this one scripture alone, man can transcend all the modes of material nature at once.

Many times, spiritual subjects are dealt with lightly, without due deliberation. People feel that once Bhakti is invoked, problems are solved. But the type of Bhakti that is discussed in the Bhagavatham has certain inner ingredients, without which merely indulging in externally motivated Bhakti shall prove to be a waste. Bhakti that does not bring with it, its two sons Jnana of the Self and position of the Supreme Being and Vairagya towards the material world, cannot qualify as Bhakti proper.

Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 11 | Lord Krishna leaving Earth | Purpose of Rituals

The path of supplication to the Supreme Lord is regarded as the highest form of sadhana by the scriptures especially the Srimad Bhagavatham. This method of surrendering to the Lord is in accordance with the Scriptures dedicated to the Path of Bhakti. A devotee spends his time discussing the mood and pastimes of the Lord and does not wrestle or fight Maya. She stands defeated even in the presence of the devotees and that is the superiority of the Bhakti Path. Rituals become important only as long as an individual does it with love in his heart with the intention of initiating a transformation in his heart. This is the secret behind all rituals of the religious kind.
