Bhagavatギーターリサイタル

Bhagavatギーターリサイタル

In the Hari-vamsha it is stated;
vede ramayane caiva purane bharate tatha
adavante ca madhye ca harih sarvatrah giyate
“In all the Vedas, Ramayana, Puranas and Mahabharata, Lord Hari’s glories are sung throughout in the beginning, middle, and the end.”
The Bhagavad-gita is one of the sections of the Bhishma Parva of the Mahabharata, thus it is scripture. Scriptures are narrations about the Supreme Lord or words spoken by the Supreme Lord. Shrimad-Bhagavatam is a beautiful narration of the pastimes of the Supreme Lord and Bhagavad-gita is the song of the Supreme Lord Krishna. Both are non different from Him.

One who recites a chapter from the Bhagavad-gita in front of a shalagrama-shila resides for a thousand manvantaras in Lord Brahma’s abode.

gitadhyayam pathed yas tu slokam slokardham eva va

By reading a chapter, a verse or even half a verse from the Bhagavad-gita, one is liberated from all sins and attains the topmost destination of Lord Vishnu’s planets.

yo nityam visva-rupakhyam adhyayam pathati dvijah
vibhutim deva-devasya tasya punyam vadamy aham

A brahmin who studies the tenth and eleventh chapter of the Bhagavad-gita attains the following result [as described in the next verse].

vedair adhitair yat punyam setihasaih puratanaih
slokenaikena tat punyam labhate natra samsayah
abrahma-stamba-paryantam jagat-trptim karoti sah
visva-rupam sadadhyayam vibhutim ca pathet tu yah

By studying a single verse from these two chapters one attains the same result as studying all the Vedas, Itihasas and Puranas, of which there is no doubt. One who studies the tenth and eleventh chapters enjoys all pleasures enjoyed by all living entities — from the ordinary blades of grass up to Lord Brahma.
