Potent hearing requires pure living
Simple hearing is not all; one must realize the text with proper attention. The word nivishta means that Suta Gosvami drank the juice of Bhagavatam through his ears. That is the real process of receiving Bhagavatam. One should hear with rapt attention from the real person, and then he can at once realize the presence of Lord Krishna in every page. The secret of knowing Bhagavatam is mentioned here. No one can give rapt attention who is not pure in mind. No one can be pure in mind who is not pure in action. No one can be pure in action who is not pure in eating, sleeping, fearing and mating. But somehow or other if someone hears with rapt attention from the right person, at the very beginning one can assuredly see Lord Shri Krishna in person in the pages of Bhagavatam.
I just cannot thank you enough for your daily quotes prabhu.They are so full of meaning.
Your aspiring servant,
Thank you for your kind words of appreciation. They are due to Srila Prabhupada. This quote is his, extracted from his illuminating Bhaktivedanta purports to the Srimad Bhagavatam. Of course, the credit for even the articles that i write goes to him because my articles are just rewordings of the message of Krishna that he brought into my life through his followers.
