  • Real happiness cannot be found within the plane of repeated birth and death, but is only achieved by becoming Krishna conscious and dedicating one’s life in devotional service. Therefore, Maharaj Pariksit happily accepted the curse of the brahmana boy as a blessing. Thus he decided to prepare for his imminent death and find out the way to go back home, back to Godhead.
  • Maharaja Pariksit sat down on the banks of the Ganges to concentrate his mind in Krsna Consciousness. Being aware of his impending death, he became detached from all worldly affairs and was able to fix his mind completely on the transcendental narration of the Names, Qualities, Forms, and Pastimes of the Supreme Lord.
  • Sripad Puri Maharaja discussed the modern idea of a multi­verse, a concept which was contained in the Vedas thousands of years ago. However, a devotee has no interest in taking residence within the material planets, but desires to go beyond the multiverse to the spiritual abode.
  • Maharaja Pariksit was interested in hearing the answer to the most important question that every intelligent person must ask, i.e., what is the duty of the person whose death is imminent. The great Personality Sukadeva was coming to fulfill this need of Maharaja Pariksit. Both the listener, Maharaja Pariksit, as well as the speaker of Krishna Katha, Srila Sukadeva Goswami, were highly qualified. Knowing the qualifications of the great sage Sukadeva, many great personalities had assembled to hear the topmost and final conclusion of the revealed scriptures that he was going to deliver to Maharaja Pariksit.
