In this second canto of Srimad Bhagavatam, we hear the great sage Shukadeva Goswami answering the questions of King Parikit, who has been cursed to die in seven days. After briefly delineating man’s highest duty and the best way to conquer suffering and death, Shukadeva explains the path of mystic yoga and meditation.

I'm looking forward to listening again to this inciteful, entertaining devotional thought provoking rendering of the Srimad Bhágavatam, second canto.
The threads of thought and revelation are expertly made clear, as the listener is transported to the ancient forest of Naimisaranya, an observer to the unparalleled gathering of sages, discussing the meaning of life.
Thank you Krishna Dharma and Chintamani Dhama for this valuable jewel.

Srimad Bhagavatam is the most prominent of the Puranas, or histories of the Ancient World. The original Sanskrit text of the work, penned by the great sage Vyasadeva, says it is "as brilliant as the sun", because its teachings can illuminate our consciousness even in the darkest times. Much like the Arabian Nights, it has an intricate structure of stories within stories; epic tales of divine incarnations, saints, sages, gods and earthly kings that span vast periods of time.

Listening to this narration by the author was a joy. It made a cross - European car journey fly by.
Looking forward to hearing more from this series. I loved the way that the details of scenes were brought to life, drawing us in, making us feel as though we were there, with the sages, thousands of years ago.
Thank you!
