– Why is Bhagavata-dharma supreme?

– The superiority of Srimad Bhagavatam consists in uniting all sorts of theistical worship into one excellent principle in human nature, which is called bhakti.

This word has no equivalent in the English language. Piety, devotion, resignation, and spiritual love, unalloyed with any sort of petition except repentance — compose the highest principle of bhakti.

Srimad Bhagavatam tells us to worship God in that great and invaluable principle, which is infinitely superior to human knowledge and the principle of yoga.

See how universal is the religion of Srimad Bhagavatam. It is not intended for a certain class of Hindus alone, but it is a gift to all men in every country and every society. (The Bhagavat: Its Philosophy, Its Ethics & Its Theology)

– Does Srimad Bhagavatam recommend worshiping many gods?

– In all its 12 skandhas or divisions, Srimad Bhagavatam teaches us that there is only one God, without a second. He was complete in Himself in the past, He is complete now, and will remain complete in the future. Time and space, which prescribe conditions to created objects, are much below His supreme spiritual nature, which is unconditioned and absolute. (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."
