(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 27 August 2015, Stockholm, Sweden, Srimad Bhagavatam 3.6.6)

Soho_TempleSrimad Bhagavatam is not a technical manual about the creation as that is not its purpose. Srimad Bhagavatam describes the creation and the essential reason why it describes the creation is to explain how at every stage, creation is intimately connected with the Supreme Lord. That is the essence – to understand how creation is intimately connected with the Supreme Lord. It is not about nuts and bolts, and so on. Bhagavatam is the book which is dedicated to the glorification of the Supreme Lord. That is where it gets its name – Bhagavat means everything related to Bhagavan, the Supreme Lord. So the creation is very much related to Bhagavan, he is part of it at every stage and this is what Bhagavatam is trying to make us understand.

When we see anything material, we can always remember that it is not material at all. It may appear material but actually the Supreme Personality of Godhead is behind everything, at every moment. His involvement is always there, and even after the whole world has been created, still he is involved with the three modes of material nature. The essence is that he never leaves us alone. He is there, at every stage when the living being enters into the material world, not only as Paramatma, but in so many expansions…

In so many ways, Krsna is involved with our material sojourn or our material situation; never for a moment are we abandoned. Never for a moment are we without Krsna, but it appears to be so – when our original knowledge of the Supreme Lord becomes covered and we forget conveniently about his existence.
