नारायणं नमस्कृत्य नरं चैव नरोत्तमम्।
देवीं सरस्वतीं व्यासं ततो जयमुदीरयेत्।

The scriptures such as Bhagavata; they are called by the name Jaya.

Before telling Jaya we should offer namaskaras to: Srimannararya, the Rishis Nara–Narayana, Saraswati Devi, and Sage Vyasa.

Of course, Ganesha-vandana is always there at the beginning of everything.

Narayana is without beginning and end.

He is the lord of the whole universe.

From his every single breath crores and crores of universes are born.

They also merge back into him.

The universe in which we are living now; its life is 4.32 billion years.

It would exist only for 4.32 billion years.

There are many many more universes existing parallelly, even today.

We haven’t even reached the borders, seen the borders of our own universe.

Even after so many space expeditions, after having the most powerful of telescopes, still we have seen only a small part of our own universe.

There are many many more such universes.

And the Lord whenever he exhales; crores and crores of such universes are born.

And whenever he inhales; they all dissolve back into him.

This reveals another thing; the duration of his one breath is in the scale of billions of years.

Can you imagine his vastness, his greatness, his size?

He supports all these universes.

He leads all these universes.

He controls all these universes.

Namaskaras to Narayana.

Nara and Narayana, the brothers born from the womb of Murthy Devi; daughter of Daksha, wife of Dharma.

Great tyagis, viragis, tapaswis.

Naimisharanya is a punya kshetra because Sages Nara and Narayana did tapasya here.

Pushkar is a punya kshetra because Sages Nara and Narayana did tapasya here.

When Devendra saw them observing tapas, he got worried.

Are they looking out to get my position?

So, he sent many apsaras and Kamadeva to distract them.

Nara-Narayana knew the purpose, why they were being sent.

One look, they could have burned all of them to ashes.

Still, anger never came to them.

All these emotions-kama, krodha–they were all fully under their control.

As an answer to Indra, they themselves produced a number of apsaras like Urvashi from their thighs.

You don’t need to send them to us.

We can make apsaras ourselves.

But that’s not what we are interested in.

These are all so trivial for us.

Namaskaras to Nara and Narayana.

The aksharas, the alphabets of Sanskrit are always there.

At the time of srishti they just reappear.

They exist in sound form at the time of srishti.

But their division into varnas, the swaras and vyanjanas is done by Devi Saraswati.

They are her body.

The aksharas exist as Matha Saraswati.

That’s why we call her Varnatmika, Lipi Saraswati.

Music has originated from her Veena.

She is the mother of the universe.

Namaskaras to Devi Saraswati.

The son of Sage Parashara and Satyavati- Veda Vyasa.

He divided the Vedas into four.

Made them easier to learn.

He wrote Puranas to spread dharma and knowledge among the common man.

He saved Bharata (भरत) vamsha from being wiped out.

He narrated dharma in a concise way and also he has described dharma in the most elaborate way.

He is the protector of dharma.

He is Brahma with a single head.

He is Vishnu with two hands.

He is Shiva with two eyes.

Meaning all of them in a single body, all three of them together in a single body.

He went to Sage Narada pretending that he was unhappy about whatever work he has done and unlocked the entire knowledge of Srimad Bhagavata.

Sage Vyasa anticipated that in Kaliyuga, people are going to drown in the ocean of ignorance.

For them, he made a boat, to save them which is Srimad Bhagavata.

He divided the entire knowledge and taught them to his disciples.

Some part of it to each one.

This was the only way to protect knowledge in Kaliyuga; what a visionary he was!

He spread the knowledge of Bhagavata to everyone.

Without any discrimination, it should reach everyone – every varna, every region, men, women, children, elderly, without any discrimination.

He achieved this through his son Shukadeva.

Shukadeva had already renounced the world.

But Sage Vyasa got him back, smartly, and entrusted the spreading of Bhagavata to him.

Shukadeva knew everything, he didn’t need anything.

He didn’t need to perform any kind of karma.

But still, sage Vyasa engaged him in spreading the knowledge of Bhagavata.
Namaskaras to Sage Vyasa.

Without offering namaskars to Shukadeva, this will not be complete.

Shukadeva, by birth was pure, had every knowledge, was completely enlightened.

Shukadeva learned Srimad Bhagavata from his father Veda Vyasa himself.

Where there is kama vasana, there can not be shyama vasana.

But, Shukadeva had absolutely no exposure to kama, desire of any kind.

He keeps on traveling from place to place for spreading the nectar of Bhagavata.

He is still among us in sukshma-rupa.

He keeps on traveling, but wherever Bhagavata is being told, he stays.

He doesn’t move away.

Through the storyteller, Shukadeva himself is telling the story of Bhagavata, to everyone, every time.

Namaskaras to Shukadeva.
