Find out on the Upcoming Shortage and Act on it! – Days 1 and 2 Guna Katha by Pujya Bhaishri

Shrimad Bhagavat Katha by Pujya Bhaishri commenced on 15th December 2019 for eight days in the city Guna in Madhya Pradesh, India. The Shobha Yatra was started at 11.30am from Hanumanji’s temple and taken throughout the city amidst the singing of God’s name. The entire city felt like it was vibrating with God’s name.

Pujya Bhaishri and Bhagavat were welcomed with garlands of flowers and aarati. With this devotion and high spirit, the Shobha Yatra arrived at the Katha venue. The family of Giriraj Bhargavji worshipped Bhagavatji. Shri Giriraj Bhargavji gave an introductory speech followed by Pujya Bhaishri beginning the Katha.

On the first day, Pujya Bhaishri explained the meaning of the word ‘Shri’ in Shrimad Bhagavat. Pujya Bhaishri said:

Vedopaniṣadāṁ sārājjātā bhāgavatī kathā

Meaning, Bhagavat is the essence of Śruti. It is compliant with Śruti. It is not just an ordinary scripture. In addition, it is very interesting and not boring, hence liked by devotees. Shrimad Bhagavat does not only contain talks on God, but it is God. Not only does Shrimad Bhagavat include the story on Lord Krishna stealing butter, but it also expounds on our butter-like mind.

The word Shrimad has a beautiful meaning. ‘Shri’ means Radha, devotion, beauty. Pujya Bhaishri then explained why Radhaji’s name is not explicitly mentioned in Bhagavat. Watch this video clip from day 1 Katha to learn this.

Pujya Bhaishri also announced of an upcoming shortage and therefore to stock up. Let us find out from this video clip what this shortage is so that we can act on it as a priority and with utmost importance.

On day 2, Pujya Bhaishri explained that Katha is not just a spiritual entertainment. On the contrary, it is to help us better our minds. Katha is the means to purify our mind. Therefore, listen to Katha with full concentration of the mind. Our life is supported by the mind; hence it is very important that we work on the mind.

We do not want to be the master of our mind rather than be enslaved by it. Despite the increasing facilities and wealth in our life, we have remained as servants. Tulsidasji says, “Parādhīn sapnehu sukh nāhī”

Meaning, those you are dependent cannot be happy even in their dreams. Be free from everything, including attachments and aversion. Tolerate dualities such as respect and insults, hot and cold etc.
