Of all the collections of spiritual teachings found in Vedic literature, Srimad Bhagavatam is considered the topmost. Vedic literature is sometimes said to be a “desire tree”, a tree that can yield whatever one might desire, and of that tree the Srimad Bhagavatam is said to be the ripe and most relishable fruit. Srimad Bhagavatam is sometimes said to begin where the Bhagavad-gita leaves off, since it goes further into the nature of reality and the relationship between all beings and the Absolute.
This is the first book out of forty-seven books that make up the twelve cantos of Srimad Bhagavatam. For those who want to pick up where the Bhagavad-gita leaves off and take a dip into the Srimad Bhagavatam before committing to the whole set, then this is the book for you.
