A Summary of the Srimad Bhagavata Mahapuranam-3.17.



Chapter-3: Kapila’s Instructions to Devahuti - 17.

In the Third Book of the Srimad Bhagavata Mahapurana we have an elaborate presentation of the instructions given by Maharishi Kapila to mother Devahuti.

Everyone should read this wondrous conversation between Sage Kapila and Devahuti for the variety of themes dealt with in this connection.

Among many other things which are very important from the point of view of a sadhaka, the emphasis that Rishi Kapila lays here is concentration on God as the Supreme Person.

The concept of God as a Person is pre-eminent in all religions. We cannot but conceive God as a Great Person, Whose limbs have to be the objects of our concentration. The minute details of this process are described by Kapila in these chapters.
