Srimad Bhagawatham is one of the eighteen Maha Puraanas of Sanathana Dharma and is dedicated to Lord Narayana or Vishnu. Spread over twelve Skandhas or volumes, Srimad Bhagawatham is a compilation of several stories, all of them centered around the various Avataars of Lord Vishnu, how His devotees have walked the path of Spirituality and prayed to Him to attain liberation from this endless cycle of birth and death, how He protected this Universe from time to time against the forces of Evil and established the supremacy of Goodness etc.
Even though Srimad Bhagawatham is popular for the rich abundance of stories contained therein, the real essence of this Maha Puraanam is the philosophical teachings that are interwoven within these stories and the subtle message of Gyaana and Bhakthi which are delivered using the stories a capsule. Several spiritual Saadhanaas are enumerated all through the twelve Skandhas and the interested Devotee – the spiritual Seeker – can adopt and practice any of these Saadhanaas that suit the capability and keenness of that particular individual. Thus the highly personalized and customized approach to Spiritual progress, which is the uniqueness of the Sanathana Dharma, is well and truly promoted by the study of Srimad Bhagawatham.
