The comprehensive encyclopaedia of the spiritual and material worlds.
What would you do if you knew you had only seven days left to live? This is exactly the situation King Parikshit (a contemporary of Arjuna from the Bhagavad Gita) find himself in during the prime of his life whilst commanding a vast empire five millenia ago. The pages of the Bhagavatam confront us with a deep question which affects us all - how do we really know how to live life if we don't know how die?
Join King Parikshit as he literally embarks on "an adventure of a lifetime". The Srimad Bhagavatam is an in-depth spiritual guide with many case studies detailing the soul's journey back to the region of immortality through the practise of bhakti yoga.
The Srimad Bhagavatam 1.1 consists of the first book (Canto 1, chapters 1-8) out of the whole encyclopaedic set. Though only the first book, it is still stand-alone and a great starting point to embark on reading the entire classic - the whole set is also available for purchase on The Happy Jiva Store. The Srimad Bhagavatam is an superb sequal to the Bhagavad Gita As It Is.
Hardbound, 487 pages, 8 colour-plated illustrations.
