With boundless grace of Sri Swamiji, Sri Ramanujamji conducted Srimath Bagavatha Saptaham at Germantown, Maryland from 3October 30th to November 5th 2015.
Sri Ramanujamji started off with an emphasis on Srimad Bhagavtham’s glory and summarized the essence of each and every canto to explain how Srimad Bhagavatham remains the supreme Thilaka among all Purana’s. He highlighted upon “Shravana Bakthi” and beautifully expounded the relevance of Bhagavatha Dharma in this Age of Kali. He further went on to highlight how Bhagavata Dharma can transcend one’s mundane desires into blossoming of ecstatic love for lotus feet of Krishna. Devotees were enthralled to listen in detail about Kunti Stuti, Bheeshma Stuti, Suka-Parikshit Samvadha, Charitra’s of various baktha’s like Dhruva, Prahaladha , Ajamela, Gajendra, Vridasura, Jada Bharata and Ambaresha.

Everybody felt blessed and indebted at the lotus feet of Sri Swamiji, whose causeless Grace has bestowed the devotees with the rarest fortune of listening to “Srimad Bhagavatham” from Sri Ramuanujamji whose versatile elucidation was relished alike to a layman as it is to a learned pandit.
