Srimad Bhagavatam – Day 22

Yamādibhir yoga-pathaiḥ kāma-lobha-hato muhuḥ
Mukunda-sevayā yadvat tathātmāddhā na śāmyati

The amount of peace that the mind, which has been tormented with desire and greed, gets from chanting the names of Mukunda will not be attained from adherence to yogic disciplines such as yama, niyama etc. This is my opinion.

Yasyāṁ vai śrūyamāṇāyāṁ kṛṣṇe parama-pūruṣe
Bhaktir utpadyate puṁsaḥ śoka-moha-bhayāpahā

Maharishi Veda Vyasa composed the Supreme Bhagawata Samhitam, which, by mere listening, creates in the person devotion towards the Supreme Lord and simultaneously dispels grief concerning past events, removes infatuation towards the present events and destroys the fear pertaining to the future events.

Sa saṁhitāṁ bhāgavatīṁ kṛtvānukramya cātma-jam
Śukam adhyāpayām āsa nivṛtti-nirataṁ muniḥ

from Srimad Bhagavatam – Day 22(Translations of Pujya Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji’s daily explanation of Srimad Bhagavatam on ETV from December 2015 onwards are compiled by Parimala Eshwarla)
