Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This is a condensed version of a long Purana of 18,000 verses. By means of stories from the lives of avatars, sages, and kings, it popularized the teaching of the Vedas. To study it is the best of all ways to become acquainted with the living religion of India today. The nineteenth century saint Ramakrishna said of the Bhagavatam, "It is fried in the butter of Knowledge and steeped in the honey of Love."

At regular intervals through the text, the chapters being condensed are designated by Book and Chapter numbers. Each interval is appropriate in length for a daily reading, and there are 365 intervals.
