– What is the definition of the worshipable object as indicated by Srimad Bhagavatam? What is the ultimate goal of the Vaishnavas?

– Bhagavan is holy, good, just, active, personal, merciful, omnipresent, all-intelligent, all-powerful, and absolutely free.

He is the supremely spiritual deity, without a second, who creates and preserves all that is in the universe.

The highest aim of the Vaishnava is to spiritually serve that infinite being forever in the activity of absolute love. (The Bhagavat: Its Philosophy, Its Ethics & Its Theology)

– What is the definition of devotional service? How many kinds of Bhagavatas are there?

– Those who worship God as the all in all with all their heart, body, and strength approach Him as Bhagavan. This principle is bhakti. The book that prescribes the relationship and worship of Bhagavan is called Bhagavata and the worshiper is called by the same name [Bhagavata]. (The Bhagavat: Its Philosophy, Its Ethics & Its Theology)

– What does Srimad Bhagavatam say about the independence and progress of the spirit soul?

– 2 more principles characterize Srimad Bhagavatam: liberty and progress of the soul throughout eternity. (The Bhagavat: Its Philosophy, Its Ethics & Its Theology)

The voluminous Srimad Bhagavatam is nothing more than a full illustration of the principle of continual development and progress of the soul from gross matter to the all-perfect universal spirit, which is distinguished as personal, eternal, absolutely free, all-powerful, and all-intelligent. There is nothing gross or material in that spirit. The whole affair is spiritual. (The Bhagavat: Its Philosophy, Its Ethics & Its Theology)

Natural Brotherhood (Bhaktivinoda Thakura):

BhaktiVinoda Thakura

"Gradually, when the offensive portions of the established religions are destroyed, there will be no more differences in the bhajana performed by the various Sampradayas nor any quarrel between them.

Then as brothers, the people of all castes and countries will spontaneously chant the Holy Names of the Supreme Lord together.

At that time, no one will hate anyone or consider others dogeaters; nor will anyone be overwhelmed by the pride of high birth.

The living entities will not forget the principle of natural brotherhood."
