The Srimad Bhagavata Mahapurana deals with the creation of the world. It is the most philosophical among the Puranas, and its poetry and general literary form are of the highest order and finest execution. The aim of life as being devotion and the realisation of God is emphasised. The whole of this Purana is a continuous hymnology on a spirited form of ardent love of God, sung in a variety of ways through history, mythology, illustration and philosophy.
The discourses which comprise this book were given by Worshipful Sri Swami Krishnanandaji Maharaj during Sadhana Week in July 1995. In these daily talks Swamiji presented the essence of the Srimad Bhagavata in his own characteristic style, interspersing in-depth and illumining interpretation with stories and narrations. This book is a treasure of knowledge presented in a form which is enjoyable and easy to understand for all.
