Transcript:

kṛṣṇe sva-dhāmopagate
dharma-jñānādibhiḥ saha
kalau naṣṭa-dṛśām eṣa
purāṇārko ’dhunoditaḥ
(SB. 1.3.43)

Dwapara Yuga finished, and last (end of) Dwapara, Krishna also disappeared from this material world, with his associates, everyone, everything. Then Kali come to take his possession. Until Krishna was here, Kali cannot take possession, then Krishna disappeared, and Kali taken possession. Then what was the situation of this world:

kṛṣṇe sva-dhāmopagate 
dharma-jñānādibhiḥ saha
kalau naṣṭa-dṛśām eṣa
purāṇārko ’dhunoditaḥ

After that,  through Vedavyasa, the divine appearance in the form of scripture, book, Srimad Bhagavat appeared, like sun in the sky. When Krishna disappeared, world will be dark, not was there any hope for living entity. But, simultaneously, the Srimad Bhagavatam, that knowledge through Narada Goswami, come to Vedavyasa, and Vedavyasa given that divine knowledge to Sukadev Goswami, after that . . it is sitting, first sitting, Narada to Vedavyasa, second sitting, Vedavyasa to Sukadev, third sitting, Sukadev to Pariksit Maharaj, and fourth sitting, Saunakadi . . Saunaka (and) sixty thousand rsis, Saunak-adi rsi, sixty thousand in their sabha, in that meeting, fourth meeting, what name? . . 

Devotees: Suta Goswami

 . . .Suta Goswami given this knowledge. After that, Vedavyasa compose it, in the form of divine book, as Srimad Bhagavatam. And after that, again enlightened this spiritual world, and material also. 

02:16

Krishna’s form was, in the Bhagavatam, there some, somewhere scripture, praise Srimad Bhagavatam:

tam adi devam karuna-nidhanam tamala-varnam suhitavataram
apara-samsara-samudra-setum bhajamahe bhagavata-svarupam

(Padma Purana)

This is praise in Purana, about Bhagavat, somewhere, I forgot that name Purana. There written also, dwadasa kandha, twelfth canto . . .

padau yadiyau prathama-dvitiyau trtiya-turyau kathitau yad-uru
nabhis tatha pancama eva sasto bhujantaram dor-yugalam tathanyau

kanthas tu rajan navamo yadiyo mukharavindam dasamam praphullam
ekadaso yas ca lalata-pattam siro’pi yad dvadasa eva bhati
 
(Padma Purana)

This is form of Krishna, in form of Srimad Bhagavatam – two leg, pratham, first canto (and) second canto, it is two leg of Krishna, padau yadiyau prathama-dvitiyau, trtiya-turyau kathitau yad-uru, the thighs (are) third canto and fourth canto, nabhis tatha pancama eva sasto, and in the belly, there in firth and sixth (canto) . . bhujantaram dor-yugalam tathanyau, and, two hand, etc, etc. And twelve canto is form of Krishna (this is “twelve” not “twelfth” i.e. all twelve cantos together, are the entire form of Krishna, from his feet, to his head) 

03:44 Then, praise Bhavagata:

tam adi devam karuna-nidhanam tamala-varnam suhitavataram
apara-samsara-samudra-setum bhajamahe bhagavata-svarupam

Anyhow, the knowledge, divine knowledge, Srimad Bhagavatam, and full of ecstasy, and emporium of all rasa. That was expression of Srila Guru Maharaj, full of ecstasy, this we will get from third sloka of Srimad Bhagavatam. And Srila Guru Maharaj more exposed the divine form of Srimad Bhagavat – ‘emporium of all rasa’, that explanation given of that sloka:

nigama-kalpa-taror galitaṁ phalaṁ
śuka-mukhād amṛta-drava-saṁyutam
pibata bhāgavataṁ rasam ālayam
muhur aho rasikā bhuvi bhāvukāḥ 
(SB 1.1.3)

That means everyone will get there essence of ecstasy, and every person living within five kinds of relationship with Lord. They, everyone will get it from Srimad Bhagavatam. 

That way, express, ah . . . Sukadev Goswami express:

adhitavan dvaparadau 
pitur dvaipayanad aham 
(SB, 2.1.8, last two lines of verse)

sa vai puṁsāṁ paro dharmo
yato bhaktir adhokṣaje
ahaituky apratihatā
yayātmā suprasīdati
(SB 1.2.6)

If we will follow the directives of Srimad Bhagavatam, everything will be peaceful in our life. Much disturbance will come in the life, no doubt, here in this material world, especially in this age of Kali Yuga. But Srimad Bhagavatam given that super prescription for the conditioned souls. For that, in the all scriptures surrender to Srimad Bhagavat. All scriptures, Purana, etc, explanation, no doubt there also Krishna is the Supreme personality of Godhead. But only not that, Krishna’s divine form, other way exposed in Srimad Bhagavat. 

06:17

Srila Rupa Goswami Prabhu, given some standard to us:

vaikuṇṭhāj janito varā madhu-purī tatrāpi rāsotsavād
vṛndāraṇyam udāra-pāṇi-ramaṇāt tatrāpi govardhanaḥ
rādhā-kuṇḍam ihāpi gokula-pateḥ premāmṛtāplāvanāt
kuryād asya virājato giri-taṭe sevāṁ vivekī na kaḥ
(Sri Upadesamrta verse 9)

Step by step, the highest, higher standard, Rupa Goswami Prabhu given us. Finally, all disturbance will go if we will surrender to Srimad Bhagavatam. And this is the prescription for Kali Yuga. 

kṛṣṇa-varṇaṁ tviṣākṛṣṇaṁ
sāṅgopāṅgāstra-pārṣadam
yajñaiḥ saṅkīrtana-prāyair
yajanti hi su-medhasaḥ
(SB 11.05.32)

Su-medhasaḥ, who is good intelligent, fortunate person, he must worship this way the Sankirtan, what organise so much widely Sriman Mahaprabhu, who is the non-different form of Krishna and Radharani. But for us, Krishna appear in Mayapura as Visvambhara, and later Sri Chaitanyadev, and started preaching Krishna consciousness, what is substance, is sankirtan – sravan, kirtan. Then all the disturbance, all the nonsense thinking will go out from the conditioned soul, if they will chant the holy name of Lord Krishna. And if they will chant that name congregationally, that will be more good result for them. This prescription given Srimad Bhagavatam for Kali Yuga, people (of) Kali Yuga, conditioned souls. 

And Krishna himself appear and shown this way you will chant the holy name of Lord. Actually, we can see in all religion, they are following this style. Our one friend, little crazy, but he also chanting “Jesus, Mary, Jesus Mary, Jesus Mary” we are hearing. And other also, so many religious people, they’re also religious mentality. 

Actually, religion have so many devotional form. Even jungle man, they are also following some religion. But everywhere, indication some name of Lord.    A very clean and clear conception given Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu after realisation, all the scriptures’ advice and gist of knowledge, and given in form of nama sankirtan.
