Attaining Light and Eternal Freedom

Text 1.2 4

“Before reciting this Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, which is the very means of conquest, one should offer respectful obeisances unto the Personality of Godhead, Nārāyaṇa, unto Nara-nārāyaṇa Ṛṣi, the supermost human being, unto mother Sarasvatī, the goddess of learning, and unto Śrīla Vyāsadeva, the author.”
sb1-1

All the Vedic literatures and the Purāṇas are meant for conquering the darkest region of material existence. The living being is in the state of forgetfulness of his relation with God due to his being overly attracted to material sense gratification from time immemorial.

His struggle for existence in the material world is perpetual, and it is not possible for him to get out of it by making plans. If he at all wants to conquer this perpetual struggle for existence, he must reestablish his eternal relation with God. And one who wants to adopt such remedial measures must take shelter of literatures such as the Vedas and the Purāṇas.

http://vedicilluminations.com/ http://onthewaytokrishna.com/ I was initiated into the Brahma-Madhva-Gaudiya Sampradaya by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in 1976. I was married in 1985 and have throughout the years tried to serve the orders of His Divine Grace as far as possible, sometimes living in the temples he founded, sometimes outside. He literally saved me from gross degradation, misery, and madness through his instructions, although I never met him physically. I have a Bhakti Sastri degree. Expert Indian cuisines-Vegetarian cooking. Astrological and Spiritual Counseling for over 30 years with a Jyoti-Ratna dipoma in Vedic astrology. http://vedicilluminations.com/astrology-services I've studied comparative theology/philosophy/religion for over 10 years. I've also extensively studied Intelligent Design Theory both modern and ancient. There is God, or the Supreme Fountainhead of all Existence, and it really is in our own best interest I believe, to get over the mental/emotional stuff in our hearts that unnaturally seperate us in heart from the most wonderful and delightful experience we can have, revived and healed in our relationship to Godhead, Who most definitely exists.....I'm happy to talk with anyone.
