Jayapataka Swami: Srimad Bhagavatam is very practical. I was a science student, I studied Physics and Chemistry and then I read the third canto Srimad Bhagavatam, the sankya yoga by Kapiladeva. It was very scientific and just by hearing it, my faith in the sastras grew. The problem is that most people do not read the Srimad Bhagavatam or the Bhagavad-gita. And they said that they are too busy or they have some other work. We should spend some time reading the Gita and Bhagavatam and such literatures. Lord Caitanya only gave three instructions – bolo Krsna, bhajo Krsna, koro Krsna sika. Chant Hare Krsna, serve Krsna and study Krsna’s teachings. So these three things are the first that Lord Caitanya requested everyone. So to have faith in the sastra, they should read the sastra and naturally they will develop faith.
