Subject: BENEFITS OF READING THE BHAGWAT PURAN

Dear friends,

May the new year fill your life with the blessings of the BHAGVATA PURAN.BHAGVATA PURANA MEANS " THE STORY OF THE FORTUNATE ONE".

Reading the bhagvata brings home unimaginable and immeasurable benifits which no one can describe.But to encourage you to read this extremely auspicious book ,I have listed a few benefits below.But the benefits are
limitless and unending.

BENEFITS OF READING THE BHAGVATA PURANA

1. Remembrance of Lord Krsna's lotus feet destroys
everything inauspicious and awards the greatest good
fortune. It purifies the heart and bestows devotion for the
Supreme Soul, along with knowledge enriched with
realization and renunciation. This narration destroys all
that is inauspicious.
2. One who with undeviating attention constantly recites
this literature at every moment of every hour, as well as
one who faithfully hears even one verse or half a verse or
a single line or even half a line, certainly purifies his very
self.
3. One who hears this Bhagavatam on the Ekadasi or
Dvadasi day is assured of long life, and one who recites it
with careful attention while fasting is purified of all sinful
reactions.
4. One who controls his mind, fasts at the holy places
Puskara, Mathuraor Dvaraka, and studies this scripture
will be freed from all fear.
5. Upon the person who glorifies this Purana by chanting
or hearing it, the demigods, sages, Siddhas, Pitas, Manus
and kings of the earth bestow all desirable things.
6. By studying this Bhagavatam, a brahmana can enjoy
the same rivers of honey, ghee and milk he enjoys by
studying the hymns of the Rg, Yajur and Sama Vedas.
7. A brahmana who diligently reads this essential
compilation of all the Puranas will go to the supreme
destination, which the Supreme Lord Himself has herein
described.
8. A brahmana who studies the Srimad-Bhagavatam
achieves firm intelligence in devotional service, a king
who studies it gains sovereignty over the earth, a vaisya
acquires great treasure and a sudra is freed from sinful
reactions.
9. Lord Hari, the supreme controller of all beings,
annihilates the accumulated sins of the Kali age, yet other
literatures do not constantly glorify Him. But that
Supreme Personality of Godhead, appearing in His
innumerable personal expansions, is abundantly and
constantly described throughout the various narrations of
this Srimad-Bhagavatam.
