Shankar Ananda

Shankar-Ananda is an avid follower of the puranas. He is an interpreter of ancient texts in modern light.






Suthaouvacha..Sutha said: After this conversation, Sanat Kumaras and Narada Muni left from Badari Ashram to Haridwar with the sole intention to part-take in the Srimad Bhagavata yagna.
Srimad Bhagavatam, Mahatmyam, Chapter 3 Sloka 1: Naradaouvacha: Gnayana yagnam…Said Narada: In order to help Bhakti, Gnayana and Vairagya regain their strength, I shall narrate the story (Srimad Bhagavatam), as preached by Sage Sukha Muni, as a Yagna.
The learned Sanath Kumaras continue to tell Sage Narada the following: By mere listening to Srimad Bhagavatam, Bhakti, Gyana (wisdom) and Vairagya (detachment) would gain strength. Gyana and Vairagya would be able to stay without getting weak. Bhakti will be extremely contended. That is the power of the Holy Text.
Sanat Kumaras, the blessed and highly erudite kids, tell Narada that there are many paths to realise the Paramatman. Many are ritualistic in nature.
Unable to find a solution to revive Gynana and Vairagya, Narada Muni goes about seeking a solution. Finally, he meets Sanaka and his learned brothers – his only ray of hope.
Having revived Bhakti through self-realisation, Shri Narada Muni was unable to wake up her two sons – Gyana and Vairagya – from their lethargy. How does Narada Muni overcome this?
