Jai Jai ShriGokulesh

To listen Bhagwatji requires three qualities 1. To have the knowledge of the Bhagwat Taatparya (meaning) 2. To be listened from the mouth of Bhakta (devottee only) 3. There should be Vairagya in the heart of listener and the reciter.

Taking the prasang of Padmanabhdasji, He was a Kanojiya Brahmin and according to the shastras he has a right to sit on teh Vyaspith and recite the stories for the listeners. Padmanabhdasji was one of those kathakaars who used to earn livelihood by doing Bhagwat Saptaahs. Shri Padmanabhdasji used to occupy the seat of Vyasji first and perform katha from his place. He used to sit on a higher seat and never needed to visit anybody's place. Once, Shri Acharyaji came to Kanoj and Padmanabhdasji came for his darshan and heard a Bhagwat katha episode from him. He recognised Shri Acharyaji as Purushottam and came to his refuge. He got name and then did samarpan. Then after Utthapan Shri Achryaji opened his pothi (a bag where religious books are kept). He had stayed in the house of Shri Damodardas Sambhalwala. Padmanabhdas came here from his residence. He then got seated after bowing down to Shri Acharyaji. Then Shri Acharyaji recited the shloka of Nibandh: Pathaniya Prayatnen....Krushnamapnuyaah || Soon after hearing this Shri Padmanabhdas got up and filled his hands with water and took a vow that he will never earn money by preaching katha. At that time Shri Acharyaji told that Bhagwat should not be recited with intentions of earning money. But it is your occupation. So you may recite Mahabharat etc. But Padmanabhdasji told that once vow taken is taken. Now he will not recite anything. Shri Acharyaji asked that you are a responsible man with family. How will you maintain yourself? To this, Padmanabhdasji replied that he will not earn money by reciting Bhagwat. Instead, he will go and ask for alms to Jajmaan and earn his livelihood. Then he went to Jajmaan for some alms. The Jajmaan respected him. At that time, Shri Padmanabhdasji felt guilty that earlier he was just a Brahmin with Janoi (sacred thread) so this practice of asking alms suited him. But now he is a vaishnav with a kanthi-Tulsimala. It does not suit him anymore. So he decided not to ask for alms anymore. To this, Shri Acharyaji again asked him as to how is he going to maintain himself? To this, he replied that he would earn by doing some business. Then he started selling kodis and woods but never thought otherwise and performed seva till the end.

Bodh::::::Realization of Shri Mahaprabhuji's swaroop. Faith on the sect. Readiness to tolerate any odds to suit the norms of the principles of Shri Mahaprabhuji.

ShriMahaprabhuji here explains the importance of ShriBhagwatji that is the namatmak swaroop of ShriThakurji, how can a livelihood can be earned in the names of Shrithakurji??????????? ShriMahaprabhuji is "Vastutaha Krishna Eva" saakshaat shrikrishna swaroop. So aapshri knew for the future that what can happen in the future. Aapshri knew that tomorrow the followers will surely fell in the religion for to earn livelihood. So aapshri created this prasang making padmanabhdasji the nimit matra. Padmanabhdasji was the nirguja daivijeev, so he just got the switch pressed by ShriMahaprabhuji and he enlightened himself in the pure Non-Dualism Bhaktimarg with the wholesome aagyna of ShriMahaprabhuji. Today we do read the charitras of 84-vaishnavas also 252 and 78 bhagwadiya's charitra, we just read, and don't follow it. Many Bhagwat saptaahs organised today but don't find any jeevs get uddhar from this worldly matters as every saptaahs is a professional based. Present saptaahs are organised and only 2 persons r benefitted, 1.) The person or a group or a institution who is organising ( by financially, benefitted by the name, fame) and 2.) The person who would sit on the Vyas pith to recite Bhagwatji (getting finance ). ShriMahaprabhuji had never denied for listening or reciting any of the prasangs of Bhagwatji, but with one big restrictions that is it should not be for the sake of earning and any laukik purpose. ShriMahaprabhuji had created Nibandh Granth in 3 parts to explain aapshri's own explained shastras (siddhant). 1. Shastrarth Prakaran Nibandh, 2. Sarva nirnay prajaran Nibandh, & 3. Bhagwarth Prakaran. From these 3-granths Sarvanirnay Granth enriches the importance of Bhagwatji, before starting the Bhagwarth Prakaran. Aapshri expains the Vilakshanta (speciality) for Ved and Bhagwatji . The Desh, Kaal, Dravya, Karta, Mantra and Karma all these r 6 elements has to be pure to acheive the phal (fruit). and Ved-smruti-Purans, are dependent on these 6 elements. 'Kali' is the kaal of non-religion (adharma) and never these 6 elements are found together at present. But Bhagwatji has no bound to these elements as "Harihi Sarvatra Sarvada" and "Strotavya" explains that Bhagwatji can be listened in all the Kaals and all Desh. It is the nitya at any kaal, and the Daivi-Aasur, manushyas any are the Aadhikari. And this is the easy. Also the Saatvik Puran is the part of Bhagwatji. So is the reason why there are explained the importance of Bhagwatji in the other purans, But Bhagwatji has not included nay of the Importance of Other Purans. The ripen fruit of Ved is ShriBhagwatji, which clarifies the doubts raised in Veds. Now looking back more to SarvaNirnay Prakaran Nibandh, ShriMahaprabhuji gives aagyna "Yatha-Yatha harihi krishno manasyavishate nije| Tatha-tatha sadhaneshu parinistha vivardhate ||240||" In this marg, by the word "Yatha-yatha" shows explaination of poona, as by listening the kirtans of ShriBhagwan, creates attraction, love in the bearts of the jeevs for Bhagwan. Similarly increases the Shradha in seva. So to say that gets aasakti in Bhagwaan. So Sarvada in all kaal the prime importance is the seva for routine life. Now , today even daily doing Shravan-Kirtanaadi also brings no bhaav for Bhagwan, just becomes a karma, no bhakti. One reason that shravan-kirtan is not done faithfully. Then to remove these obstacles of Shravan-Kirtan, by "Krishne Sarvatmane" top keep always deenta, and keep the bhagwatbhaav at all places. And even if someone does apmaan, should not get angry, and Most important that do not keep any expectations from ShriGurudev and ShriThakurji. To attain this beauty can be done, always do chant the name of shribhagwan and also the Leela-Gunaanuvaads of ShriPrabhu should be done without shame. Means at all places chanting the fame and faith of shrithakurji will enhance the jeev to attain the siddhi. Also always doing the kirtan of "ShriBhagwatji" will attain the best fruit. For attaining the fruit, requires to leave back all the kapat (theftness), and also the kaamna (expectations), and with respectly to do the paath of ShriBhagwatji.

here shrimahaprabhuji is not giving the aagyna to do bhagwat saptaahs
. Showing the mahamatya of Bhagwan, all importance, and enhances how to elaborate love in Bhagwan, is explained The Bhagwat Mahapuran. Now in this world, love is not inspired inthe hearts of the Bhakts (Listeners), So shrimahaprabhuji shows three elements for bhakts to listen bhagwatji. 1. To have the knowledge of the Bhagwat Taatparya (meaning) 2. To be listened from the mouth of Bhakta (devottee only) 3. There should be Vairagya in the heart of listener and the reciter. And also for attaining the peak of Bhagwatji, again main important is required the "Aadhikaar". And the katha should not be purposely done for any such professional aspects. Shrimahaprabhuji explains the importance of Bhagwatji, in the vaarta prasang of Padmanabhdasji and also in the Sarvanirnay PRakaran Nibandh Granth.

Jai Jai ShriGokulesh Pushtimargiya navadha-bhakti, which is been said in Bhagwatji

sravanam kirtanam visnoh smaranam pada-sevanam arcanam vandanam dasyam sakhyam atma-nivedanam

Hearing and chanting about the transcendental holy name, form, qualities, paraphernalia and pastimes of Lord Vishnu, remembering them, serving the lotus feet of the Lord, offering the Lord respectful worship, offering prayers to the Lord, becoming His servant, considering the Lord one's best friend, and surrendering everything unto Him (in other words, serving Him with the body, mind and words) -- these nine processes are accepted as pure devotional service." Srimad Bhagavatam 7.5.23
