BHAGWAT KATHA

Pujya Bhaishri has been expounding the Shrimad Bhagavat since 1975, when he was only 18 years old. He has great devotion towards the Shrimad Bhagavat. His unique style of narration, chanting shlokas, singing stutis and bhajans throughout the katha makes it an enchanting and memorable experience for all. This katha, like the river Ganga, has flowed to all parts of the world through Bhaishri and touched the lives of millions across the globe.

The Bhagavat katha is held for 7 or 8 days. Pujya Bhaishri begins by explaining the importance and glory of the Shrimad Bhagavat followed by the story of King Parikshit. There after the stories of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu are told. Amongst all the stories, that of Lord Krishna is expounded in great detail. All important utsavs such as Krishna janam, Nandotsav, Govardhan utsav, Rukmini vivaah are celebrated with great joy and vigour.

While Pujya Bhaishri sings the glory of the Lord and his lilas he also carefully explains the philosophy behind each of those lilas. His kathas are filled with the elixir of devotion (Bhakti Rasa) along with the immense flow of knowledge (Gyan Ganga),and listeners drink this nectar in abundance.

About the Shrimad Bhagavat

The Shrimad Bhagavat is one of the most sacred books of the Hindus. Described as a ‘Mahapurana’, it is a monarch among scriptures. It narrates the divine ‘lilas’(pastimes) of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu and His devotees. The tenth volume of the Shrimad Bhagavat narrates in detail the story of Lord Krishna.

Written by Sage Veda Vyasa the Bhagavat leaves no topic untouched – social, political, and economic systems – all these have been covered and commented upon by him. Not just issues relating to self-liberation but even our day-to-day problems have been effectively resolved in the Bhagavat. Hence it can be emphatically stated that the Bhagavat is an exposition, which explains human life very clearly, it is a direction leading to the ultimate liberation of the soul.

The scripture is often considered, and worshipped, as the essence of Lord Krishna. It is considered to be the real wealth of the devotees of God who worship him in the form the eternal truth, ‘satya’. The text begins and ends with ‘satyam param dhimahi’, a dedication to the eternal and everlasting truth – which is God, and therefore is open to all religions and faiths to savour.

The Shrimad Bhagavat is a treasure of the lilas of the Lord, an anthology of the miraculous experiences of the Lord’s devotees and the special grace that Lord Krishna, in His various forms, showered upon them.

This divine saga is a narration by Lord Brahma to Sage Narada, who related it in four shlokas (verses) to Sage Veda Vyasa who then expanded these into eighteen thousand shlokas, 335 adhyaya(chapters) and twelve skands (cantos). He then passed on this priceless inheritance to his son Shri Shukadeva who related it to King Parikshit who had been cursed with death by the son of the Brahmin.

This katha has its significance in awarding liberation to the human soul when the seeker follows the discipline of listening to this wonderful scripture for seven days. It brings out the importance of the chanting of the Lord’s name in this age (kali-yuga).

The Shrimad Bhagavat is described as the ‘kalpataru’, which is capable of giving us any fruit we desire. It is also the ‘bhavaushadya’, the medicine that will cure us of our worldly diseases, of greed attachment, anger and pride, and the ‘rasayan’, which will strengthen the immunity of our soul and prevent us from contracting faults.
