Om NamO Bhagavate VAsudevayA
SB: 1.2.4
SB: 1.2.18
nryanam namaskrtya
naram caiva narottamam
devm sarasvatm vysam
tato jayam udrayet
nasta-pryesv abhadresu
nityam bhgavata-sevay
bhagavaty uttama-loke
bhaktir bhavati naisthik
By regular attendance in classes on
the Bhgavatam and by rendering of
service to the pure devotee, all that is
troublesome to the heart is almost
completely destroyed, and loving
service unto the Personality of
Godhead, who is praised with
transcendental songs, is established
as an irrevocable fact.
Before reciting this rmad-Bhgavatam,
which is the very means of conquest,
one should offer respectful obeisances
unto the Personality of Godhead,
Nryana, unto Nara-nryana Rsi, the
supermost human being, unto mother
Sarasvat, the goddess of learning, and
unto rla Vysadeva, the author.
