“The Essence of Religion” (SB 2.9.21)

Alachua - July 20, 1994 / (052)

This section of the Bhagavatam chronicles a discussion between the cosmic engineer of the universe, Lord Brahma, and Lord Vishnu, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Thompson not only argues that Vedic texts such as these contain the essence of religious experience, but even further, that the Srimad-Bhagavatam, with its emphasis on bhakti, represents the summum bonum.
