Course Overview

Why should I read Srimad Bhagavatam daily?

Srila Prabhupada wrote in his purport of Srimad Bhagavatam, Canto 1 Chapter 7 Text 7

The conclusion is that simply by hearing the Vedic literature Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, one can have direct connection with the Supreme Personality of Godhead Śrī Kṛṣṇa, and thereby one can attain the highest perfection of life by transcending worldly miseries, illusion and fearfulness. These are practical tests for one who has actually given a submissive hearing to the readings of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam.

Srimad Bhagavatam is the literary incarnation of Krishna.

idaṁ bhāgavataṁ nāma

purāṇaṁ brahma-sammitam


cakāra bhagavān ṛṣiḥ

niḥśreyasāya lokasya

dhanyaṁ svasty-ayanaṁ mahat

This Srimad-Bhagavatam is the literary incarnation of God, and it is compiled by Srila Vyasadeva, the incarnation of God. It is meant for the ultimate good of all people,
and it is all-successful, all-blissful and all-perfect. (SB 1.3.40)

kṛṣṇe sva-dhāmopagate

dharma-jṣānādibhiḥ saha

kalau naṣṭa-dṛśām eṣa

purāṇārko ’dhunoditaḥ

This Bhagavata Purana is as brilliant as the sun, and it has arisen just after the departure of Lord Krishna to His own abode, accompanied by religion, knowledge, etc. Persons who have lost their vision due to the dense darkness of ignorance in the age of Kali shall get light from this Purana. (SB 1.3.43)
