Mother Meera, in one of her kirtans says,‘Apne mandir me bait baitkargeetha bhagavat vaachoongi’(click here to see the entire kirtan).
‘I shall sit in the temple of my beloved Lord and read Srimad Bhagavat Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam’.Sri Swamiji gives yet another beautiful interpretation of this statement – ‘ I will sit in the temple of my Lordand read Srimad Bhagavatam which is verily a commentary on Bhagavat Gita!’.
Srimad Bhagavatam is verily a commentary of Bhagavat Gita. Every sloka in the Bhagavat Gita is expounded and illustrated in Srimad Bhagavatam with a story!For instance…Bhagavat Gita says that if a person performs his sadhana, and at some point, dies, then in his next birth, he will resume from where he left.
Jadabharata’s story is verily an illustration of this point.
Bhagavat Gita says that even if a devotee offers me a small offering, I will protect him.
Ajamila Charitram in Srimad Bhagavatam is verily an illustration of this verse.
[This was mentioned by Sri Swamiji in His lecture during the Bhagavata Saptaha at Sri Bhuvaneswari Amman Temple in Jafferkhanpet, Chennai between 7th & 13th June, 2009]
