Re: Touch of the Supreme Lord

Hare Krishna Devotees,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev.

It was a wonderful realization by HG Radha Madanmohan Prabhu. Actually Maharaj's statement that, "When we're reading Bhagavatam we're actually touching Krishna", is very profound. When I used to hear this statement from devotees and Maharaj I used to think how a book can be non-different from Krishna? However, by Lord's mercy I was reading a verse from Skanda Purana (Vishnu-kanda-6.4.3) which exactly re-iterated this point.

śrīmad-bhāgavatasyātha śrīmad-bhāgavataḥ sadā
svarupam ekam evāsti sac-cid-ānanda lakshana

Srimad Bhagavatam and the Personality of Godhead are always of the same nature - possessing of eternal existence, full knowledge and complete bliss.

And the Padma purana explains how each canto of Bhagavatam is related to the transcendental form of Krishna.

Your servant,
