Readings from Srimad-Bhagavatam


Two audio cassettes bound in a sturdy vinyl album

  “The Ultimate Dharma” “What to Do about Death”
Here are two essential sections from the Srimad-Bhagavatam, the crown jewel of all Vedic literatures. In the first excerpt, from the First Canto, Srila Prabhupada illuminates a passage describing Krsna consciousness as the supreme religious activity – what its goals are and how to practice it. In the second excerpt, from the Second Canto, Sukadeva Goswami instructs King Pariksit, who was facing certain death in a week, on how to face his fate fearlessly and successfully by becoming absorbed in thoughts of Krsna. Both sections concisely describe the purifying and sanctifying power of Krsna consciousness in beautiful Sanskrit poetry and Srila Prabhupada’s realized translations and commentary. Listen:
