Srimad Bhagwat Katha ( April 21, 2015
- April 27, 2015)
by H. H. Sri Swami Adhyatmanandaji Maharaj
Before Srimad Bhagawat Katha commenced devotees joined in for "Pothi Yatra" carried Sri Bal Krishna in procession with traditional orchestra and dancing and singing in praise Sri Lallaji Maharaj. Thirty one young students of Bhagavata learning rendered their services by reading Bhagavata very systematically every day. From the Vyasa Peeth, Sri Swami Adhyatmanandaji Maharaj graced the devotees, the nectar of Srimad Bhagawata for seven days daily from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm.
The Srimad Bhagavata Maha purana describes the various Avatara of Vishnu. It is the most important among the eighteen Puranas and it is in poetry form. There are ten Avataras of Vishnu. The aim of every Avatara is to save the world from some great danger, to destroy the wicked and protect the virtuous. The ten Avataras are: Matsya (The Fish), Kurma (The Tortoise), Varaha (The Boar), Narasimha (The Man-Lion), Vamana (The Dwarf), Parasurama (Rama with the axe, the destroyer of the Kshatriya race), Ramachandra (the hero of the Ramayana—the son of Dasaratha, who destroyed Ravana), Sri Krishna, the teacher of the Gita, Buddha (the prince-ascetic, founder of Buddhism), and Kalki (the hero riding on a white horse, who is to come at the end of the Kali-Yuga)
The aim of life as being devotion and the realization of God is emphasized. The whole of this Purana is a continuous hymnology on a spirited form of ardent love of God, sung in a variety of ways through stories, mythology, illustration and philosophy. From the Vyasa Peeth Sri Swamiji Maharaj presented the essence of the Srimad Bhagavata in His own unique style, in-depth and illumining listeners with stories and narrations easy to understand. Pujya Swamiji gets absorbed in a different realm while narrating and singing the Glories of the Lord and make others experience the same.
Devotees also, in their overwhelming joy expressed and thanked Revered Swamiji Maharaj. They presented Swamiji a special turban from Mysore, Karnataka. It symbolizes a special honor to "Vidwan" meaning a learned & scholarly being. President of Ahmedabad Dental Surgeon Association, Dr. Jayant Vasavada with devotee group presented Swamiji Shawl, silver necklace and Rs. 2.5 lakhs as a token of their love. Sri Swamiji, graciously donated the money for H. H. Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj’s Birth Centenary Celebration fund.
