Bhagavat Katha – Sriman Lal Govind Das

Lal Govind Prabhu Visit to Perth V10

Hare Krishna Dear all,
Hope this email finds you well.
After an amazing heart melting Bhagavatam Katha in Perth last year in August by Sriman Lal Govind Prabhu we all felt rejuvenated and inspired in many ways.
Prabhu travels all around the world giving the nectar of Bhagavatam Katha in such a unique way which is attractive to both young and old equally.
Usually he is always booked out for a year in advance however we were fortunate enough to get some time of him for Perth yatra from his busy schedule.
To Know more about H.G. Lalgovinddas – Click Here
This email is just to provide this great news that he is coming back to Perth in June for a 7 day Srimad Bhagavad Saptah. You will also receive an email from the temple shortly.
Result of reciting and hearing Srimad-Bhagavatam
The whole Srimad-Bhagavatam, eighteen thousand verses, very difficult to pronounce even and what to speak of memorizing, were narrated very easily just like reading some printed book. Sukadev Goswami narrated the whole subject matter of Srimad-Bhagavatam continuously for seven days and Maharaja Pariksit also understood the subject matter very clearly. Both of them were so meritorious that they attained the highest goal of life, namely the Lotus Feet of Lord Sri Krsna simply by reciting and hearing respectively.
(Srila Prabhupada — 25 August, 1970)
Peace in society
By hearing the subject matter of Srimad-Bhagavatam this false complexity of materialism is removed, and real peace in society begins.
Effect of Regular Attendance in Srimad Bhagavatam Classes
By regular attendance in classes on the Bhagavatam and by rendering of service to the pure devotee, all that is troublesome to the heart is almost completely destroyed, and loving service unto the Personality of Godhead, who is praised with transcendental songs, is established as an irrevocable fact.
(TRANSLATION Srimad Bhagavatam 1.2.18)
Ever Refreshing
Now, this Srimad-Bhagavatam, Vyasadev has written eighteen thousand verses. And not only Srimad-Bhagavatam, He has written eighteen Puranas. Out of eighteen Puranas the Srimad-Bhagavatam is one Purana. And in one Purana you find eighteen thousand verses, and each and every word is so meaningful that you study throughout your whole life, oh, still you’ll find refreshed.
(Lecture on Srimad Bhagavatam 5.5.1-2 — London (Tittenhurst), September 13, 1969)
The detail of the program are as follow. Please also find attached the flyer.

PunyaSloka Krsna Das
