Shrimad Bhagwat Katha and Narad - Shri Krishna - Ch. - 1

While he was hunting in the jungle, Parikshit met up with Kalyug. Parikshit would not have permitted Kalyug to live on this earth but Kalyug said, “I am here by the decree by the Goddess of Destiny. After the end of the Dwapar age, I am next in line.

You will have to give me a place to stay.” Parikshit then permitted Kalyug to live with untruth, ecstasy, desire, cruelty and as an afterthought, gold. Immediately, Kalyug entered the gold crown on Parikshit’s head and began to pervert his mind.

King Parikshit became thirsty and finally reached Sage Shamik’s ashram, where the sage was meditating. King called him and requested water many times but the Sage was oblivious of the outside world and did not hear his request.Kalyug who was sitting in the crown on the King’s head, saw his chance. He corrupted the king’s wit, so that the King got very angry and without thinking about what he was doing; put a dead snake around the Sage’s neck to insult him.

Narad reached the Badrik ashram where he met Sanka, Sanandan, Sanaatan and Sanatkumar. On Narad’s instigation, they organized a Shrimad Bhagwat katha (The folklore spoken by Santkumar was recited by Sutji to Shounak and several other sages in the Naimisharanya (Neemsar)).

The tradition of Katha (folklore) commenced with the start of Kalyug. Shri Krishna had completed his leelas and gone to devlok (abode of the deities). The Pandavas handed over the charge of the state to Parikshit and went off to the Himalayas to die. The Dwapar yug (age) had come to an end and Kalyug had just commenced.

''Naradji said, “Lord, during the Kalyug, no one will be able to carry out strong devotional and religious rites, because of this Bhaktimata is very worried; please show us a way out, wherein even in Kalyug these three can stay together.” Shri Krishna asked them to go to Brahmaji. Narad asked the same question of Brahmaji. Brahmaji said that there was only one way out in Kalyug, and that would be reading Shrimad Bhagwat Katha, and through chanting the stories of Shri Krishna’s leelas (acts). He said, “If you go to Badrikashram, you will find the path of welfare there”.''
