Sripada Bhakti Madhava Puri Maharaja read from Srimad Bhagavatam.

  • Srila Sukadeva Goswami explains how we can realize the Supreme Lord of the Heart (Paramatma) by reason and perception with the help of our intelligence. This is further clarified by His Divine Grace Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada’s purport of this sloka.
  • Sripada Bhakti Madhava Puri Maharaja explains that our religion and philosophy are based on direct experience and not merely on faith alone. Vijnana means realized knowledge in which the subject makes himself the object of his own investigation.
  • Answering a question from a devotee, Sripad Puri Maharaja explains that an element of narcissism, or self-enjoyment, exists minutely within everyone because we are sparks of the energy of the Absolute, Whose nature is to be for Himself. But because Vasudeva is everything, Krnsa’s joy is everyone’s joy. The position of the living entities is that they are dependent servants and Krishna is the independent Lord of everyone.
  • Intelligence is everywhere, even within an atom or a molecule. On a larger scale, even the solar system would eventually fly apart if it were merely guided by Newton’s mechanical laws alone.

Here is the recording of 26 September 2012 sadhu-sanga.
