Srimad Bhagavatam – Day 77

Nārāyaṇa-parā vedā devā nārāyaṇāṅgajāḥ
Nārāyaṇa-parā lokā nārāyaṇa-parā makhāḥ

All the Vedas speak only about Narayana! All Devatas have emerged from Narayana alone! All the various planes of existence (lokas) are under the control of Narayana himself. All the yagnas (sacrificial rituals) are aimed at pleasing Narayana alone.

Nārāyaṇa-paro yogo nārāyaṇa-paraṁ tapaḥ
Nārāyaṇa-paraṁ jñānaṁ nārāyaṇa-parā gatiḥ

The ultimate end point (goal) of Yoga is Narayana. The main purpose of undertaking austerities (tapas) is solely to earn the grace of Narayana. That which explains the essence of this Supreme Lord Narayana is known as Supreme Knowledge. All paths lead to Him alone.

from Srimad Bhagavatam – Day 77(Translations of Pujya Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji’s daily explanation of Srimad Bhagavatam on ETV from December 2015 onwards are compiled by Parimala Eshwarla)
