Date: Nov 5, 2009. Thursday
Venue: Residence of Sri Zivan Prakash and Yamini ji, Aurora, IL
Event: Talk by Sri Ramanujam ji
Topic: Essence of Srimad Bhagavatham
Sri Ramuji wonderfully explained the meaning and significance of the five Stuties namely, Kunti Stuti, Bishma Stuti, Druva Stuti, Prahlada Stuti and Gajendra Stuti. These prepared the listeners to comprehend the panchagitas which followed. In Sri Sridar Ayyaval’s opinion, Srimad Bhagawatam is the Vedas for Bhagawatas. Sri Ramuji mentioned that the true willingness to listen to Bhagawatam yields the same fruit of listening to Bhagawatam itself. He said that when Bhagwan Sri Krishna decides to bless any one, then HE makes that devotee read or listen to Srimad Bhagawatam. So the very sign that all of us have gathered here and have started the US satsang programs for this year with the Essence of Srimad Bhagawatam goes to prove that all the five families present are recipient of Sri Krishna’s grace.
