Be engaged always in reading Srimad-Bhagavatam

    Posted on July 3, 2017

We should have regular classes, just like school and colleges, eight hour, six hour. Be engaged always in reading Srimad-Bhagavatam, discussing amongst yourself. Then you'll make progress. Otherwise, if you take it as an official routine work... You should take as routine work, but with consciousness that "We have to learn something," not simply attending the class, but to learn something. In this way make your life successful. Because after all, everything is being done daiva-coditat, impelled by the Supreme Person. The Supreme Person is behind everything. So in the association of devotees, if we read Srimad-Bhagavatam regularly, then our material contamination will be dissolved, and our spiritual consciousness will come out, and that will make our life successful.

From Srila Prabhupada's lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 3.26.41 — January 16, 1975, Bombay
