Sat-karma sūcakō nūnaṃ jnana-yajnaḥ smrto budhaih
Srimad-bhāgavatālāpah sa tu gitaḥ śukādibhih
Amongst all the Yajnas, Jnana-yagna is the most supreme. This Jnana-yajna called singing Srimad Bhāgavatam has been performed by Maharishi Śuka and other eminent sages. You propagate this Bhāgawatam in this world.
Praḷayaṃ hi gamiśyanti Srimad-bhāgavatā-dhvanēh
Kali-dośa ime sarve simha-sabdād vrka iva
Just as the wolf runs in fear on hearing a lion’s roar, all the difficulties and sorrows of Kali Yuga will be destroyed if the devotee sings this Bhāgawatam”.
Idaṃ bhāgavataṃ nāma purāṇaṃ braḥma-sammitaṃ
Bhakti -jnāna virāgāṇāṃ sthāpanāya prakāsitaṃ
This sacred Maha-purāna called Bhāgawatam is equivalent of the Vedas. In order to establish devotion (bhakti), supreme knowledge (jnana) and dispassion (vairagya) in this world, this has been lit/ illumined by the Supreme Lord himself.
