The Shreemad Bhagavatam is a scripture unlike no other. It is the final and greatest work of the great sage, Sri Vedavyasa, and serves as the culmination of all the Vedas and Puranas. Among the many things it accomplishes, above all it tells us that God is also a person. We call him Narayana. He has, and continues to, incarnate in many forms to make Himself known to His children. He walks with them, talks with them, laughs with them - He lives with them. So how can we come to know Him? And this is the real question. It is no longer about what God is, but rather who God is. This is why we have the Shreemad Bhagavatam, the crown-jewel of Holy Scripture. When it is then expounded to us by a true living embodiment of the Divine like Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda, we have something incomparable to anything else - we have first hand experience of the Divine. Do not simply read this book. Live it, breath it and lose yourself in the stories. Re-live every experience, every word in the core of your heart and you will find that God doesn’t live in a far away plane, nor is He confined to the scriptures of yesteryear. He lives in the heart of every living being today. Find Him, love Him and be free. Jai Gurudev.
