A Summary of the Srimad Bhagavata Mahapuranam-4.27


4 : The Stories of Siva and Sati, and of Rishabhadeva and Bharata-27.

 If you can roll up the whole space like a sheet of leather, then you can have peace of mind without knowledge of God.

T The Purusha Sukta concludes by saying there is no way of crossing over this sea of samsara except by knowing Him who is the Purushottama. One crosses the domain of death by knowing Him. Knowing Him is being Him. They are not two different things. The knowledge of God is also the being of God, and therefore, when we know God, we be God, as it were.

Such is the glorious story that we have here in the Rahugana-Bharata Samvada in the Fifth Skandha, and there are incidental stories of this type in the Sixth and the Seventh Skandhas also.
