I addressed the Bhadra Campaign celebration from 8.30 to 9am IST. Today is Bhadra Purnima, a very special day, in the whole year. Today we are worshipping and appreciating Srimad Bhagavatam. Srila Prabhupada took the sannyasa asrama on Bhadra Purnima. At that time, he was asked, “Are you going to America?” He said, “No, Srimad Bhagavatam is going to America. I am going with Srimad Bhagavatam.” Lord Caitanya explained that the Srimad Bhagavatam is the literary incarnation of Sri Krsna because Srimad Bhagavatam, from beginning to end, there is nothing but devotional service.
Srimad Bhagavatam is so special. Srila Prabhupada wanted that all the gentlemen should have a copy of Srimad Bhagavatam in their house. I have all my gratitude to all the distributors, all the people who have taken Srimad Bhagavatam sets, all those who have sponsored Srimad Bhagavatam sets, to all the devotees who did the yajna in the morning. All glories to Srimad Bhagavatam!
