A Must Watch Show For All
“Which is the most noble deed in life”
When king Parikshit asked this to all the sages he was seated amongst with, the beginning of his and mankind’s journey into the greatest and the best way to immortality for this present Strife Age (Kaliyug) was set.
He was distraught at not getting the correct answer as he had only seven days to live, when Sukhdev Goswami came to him. He recited the pious Bhagwat Puran and answered all his questions. Not knowledge or charity or meditation but devotion is the most noble deed of life.
Indeed, devotion is the best and easiest way to reach the Supreme Lord i.e. immortality, especially in this Kaliyug where there is anxiety, distress, disturbance and confusion everywhere all the time. Bhagwat Puran is the devotional epitome.
Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran is a show being aired on Colors TV every Sunday. Look at the reasons you need to watch this larger than life show:
1. The narration by the Supreme Lord Krishna Himself to His beloved Srimati Radha.
Getting to see everyone’s beloved Lord Krishna with his dear Radharani, telling the story is a reason enough to want to watch the show. Their portrayal has been done in full glory with extravagant costumes and divine settings of their abode Goloka.
2. The story of how our present Kaliyug (Iron Age) began.
Watch how Kali, the demon was able to trick king Parikshit, the surviving descendent of the Kuru dynasty into entering his kingdom and beginning his yug. The way he influences people with his vices and controls them has been shown.
3. The noble king Parikshit’s self-realization journey.
Kaliyug was not able to enter Bharatvarsh long back due to king Parikshit’s moral ruling and sankirtana yajna (congregational chanting of the holy names of the Supreme Lord). His eternal blissful story, how he was a beloved of Lord Krishna and how he became His devotee should be seen.
4. The recitation of the Bhagwat Puran.
The Bhagwat Puran is for the wellbeing and relief from the suffering of mankind in Kaliyug. The Puran’s chapters are narrated through visual effects which makes it heavenly to watch. The explanation is given clearly. The scenery, graphics and settings are beyond this world.
5. Supreme devotee Sukhdev Goswami’s greatness.
Sukhdev Goswami’s glory cannot be described in words. The soul who knew the Absolute Truth before being born itself and who refused to be entangled with this perishable mortal world, was always immersed in devotion to Lord Krishna. He mercifully saved king Parikshit from his material misery. His story is one worth watching at all costs.
6. Shrimad Bhagavatam is the sound incarnation of Lord Krishna Himself.
The best reason to learn this transcendental Puran is, the Puran being the concrete volume avatar of Radha Krishna ‘in person’. The Bhagwat Puran’s sole existence is to glorify the Supreme Lord Krishna thus imbibing intense devotion in humans.
7. The necessity of this Puran in the present time.
In this age of quarrel and hypocrisy when there is terror, chaos and misery, where there is very less time, the one out of the only two scriptures needed to be read is Bhagwat Puran. It describes Lord Krishna’s fathomless pageants. It has the substance of Vedas, Vedanta and Mahabharata.
