This great Vedic scripture was compiled by Vyasadeva and comprises of 12 Cantos and 18000 verses. It describes the divine pastimes of Lord Krishna, His various incarnations and His devotees. The Skanda Purana states: “In Kali-yuga, of what value are collections of hundreds of thousands of other scriptures, if one does not keep the Srimad Bhagavatam in his house? In Kali-yuga, wherever there is Srimad Bhagavatam, the Lord goes there along with the demigods. Any person who faithfully recites a verse of Srimad Bhagavatam every day attains the fruit of reading all the eighteen Puranas“. Such are the glories of Srimad Bhagavatam.

A Dead Person Who Is Breathing

Quotes by Srimad Bhagavatam on A Dead Person who Is Breathing

The spiritual master must be satisfied with the disciple. Only then is knowledge automatically manifest before the student of spiritual science.
