Srimad Bhagavatam 11.29.11-12 - Getting Back To The Yuga Dharma (download mp3)
by Sri Vishambhar Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty
pṛthak satreṇa vā mahyaṁ
Either alone or in public gatherings, with singing, dancing and other exhibitions of royal opulence, one should arrange to celebrate those holy days, ceremonies and festivals set aside specially for My worship.
mām eva sarva-bhūteṣu
bahir antar apāvṛtam
yathā kham amalāśayaḥ
With a pure heart one should see Me, the Supreme Soul within all beings and also within oneself, to be both unblemished by anything material and also present everywhere, both externally and internally, just like the omnipresent sky.
According to Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura, the Lord has spoken the present verse to attract those who are inclined toward philosophical speculation about the Absolute Truth. Such transcendental scholars searching for the ultimate unity will be attracted by the Lord’s manifestation described here.
