Srimad Bhagvata Katha (in Hindi) (June 7, 2007- June 14, 2007)
As Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj writes the Glories of Srimad Bhagavata,
........"All that is noble and inspiring in Hindu Religion, philosophy and culture is found in Bhagavata. The highest truths of religion and philosophy and the highest principles of ethics are beautifully explained in this marvelous and unique book. It teaches all about Bhagavata Dharma or the religion of love. Bhagavata is the solace of life. It is a valuable treasure-house of divine knowledge. A study of this book inspires devotion, instills knowledge and Vairagya.
You should conduct Bhagvata Saptaha in your house once every year. This will contribute to your happiness and prosperity. Every one of you should have a copy of the Bhagavata in your house"......– Swami Sivananda
