Installing the Srimad Bhagavatam in your house

By editor - 3.7 2017


Vaishnavas like Prahlada Maharaja are always present wherever the topics of Srimad Bhagavatam are discussed. Those who worship Srimad Bhagavatam are beyond the jurisdiction of Kali.

Those persons who worship the Vaishnava literature Srimad Bhagavatam in their house are freed from all sins and they become worshipable by even the demigods.

In the age of Kali, I become very pleased with those who regularly worship Srimad Bhagavatam in their house and dance without fear.

O My dear son, as long as Srimad Bhagavatam is present in one’s house, for that long his forefathers consume milk, ghee, honey, and water.

One who with devotion gives the gift of Srimad Bhagavatam to a Vaishnava resides in My abode for millions of kalpas.

One who always worships Srimad Bhagavatam in his house satisfies the demigods for the duration of one kalpa.

If even a half or a quarter of a verse of Srimad Bhagavatam is kept in one’s house that is glorious. For what is the need of accumulating thousands of other literatures?

In Kali-yuga, one who does not keep Srimad Bhagavatam in his house can never be delivered from the control of Yamaraja.

In Kali-yuga, how can one be considered a Vaishnava who does not keep Srimad Bhagavatam in his house? He is more abominable than a candala.

My dear son, lord of the universe. For My pleasure and the pleasure of the Vaishnavas one should keep Srimad Bhagavatam with devotion.

In Kali-yuga, wherever the auspicious Srimad Bhagavatam is recited, I reside, along with all the demigods.

My dear son, all the holy rivers, kundas, and lakes, all sacrifices, the seven sacred cities—Ayodhya, Mathura, Maya (Haridvära), Kashi, Kanchi, Avanti (Ujjain), and Dvaraka—and all the holy mountains are present where Srimad Bhagavatam is discussed.

O lord of the universe, one should hear Srimad Bhagavatam in order to attain fame, religiosity, victory, freedom from sin, or liberation.

By hearing Srimad Bhagavatam one becomes religious and he lives a long life, free from disease and all sinful reactions.

O lord of the universe, I speak the truth: those who do not hear the topmost literature, Srimad Bhagavatam, or do not express happiness after hearing it are kept under Yamaraja’s jurisdiction.

O My dear son, there is no one more sinful than one who does not go anywhere to hear Srimad Bhagavatam, especially on the day of Ekadashi.

I reside in the house of one who has kept there a verse, a half verse, or even a quarter of a verse of Srimad Bhagavatam.

The purity one attains by hearing Srimad Bhagavatam cannot be attained by visiting Badarikashrama or taking bath in the confluence at Prayaga.

O four-headed Brahma, I go wherever the topics of Srimad Bhagavatam are discussed, just as a cow spontaneously follows her calf.

I never leave one who enjoys speaking or hearing Srimad Bhagavatam.

One who does not offer respects after seeing the auspicious Srimad Bhagavatam loses the pious credits he accumulated over the past year.

I am unlimitedly pleased with one who stands in respect and then offers obeisances upon seeing Srimad Bhagavatam.

A person who circumambulates Srimad Bhagavatam achieves the results of an ashvamedha-yajna with every step. Of this there is no doubt.

For one who stands in respect and then offers obeisances upon seeing Srimad Bhagavatam, I offer him wealth, wife, children, and devotional service.

My dear son, I am controlled by those who worship Srimad Bhagavatam with sixteen ingredients and hear Srimad Bhagavatam with devotion.

O Brahma, O Suvrata, among all types of festivals, the festival of discussing Srimad Bhagavatam is the topmost.
Those who participate in such festivals for My pleasure and hear Srimad Bhagavatam with devotion and those who worship Srimad Bhagavatam with cloth, ornaments, flowers, lamp, and incense certainly control Me just as a chaste wife controls her good husband.
