13.Srimath Bhagvatham. Magalacharana shlokas Tribute to Vyasa Deva.

vyasa

Vyāsadeva is mainly known for his work as the complier of the Vedas

He also wrote supplementary scriptures such as the Itihāsas, eighteen Purāṇas, one-hundred-eight Upaniṣads, the Mahābhārata, the Brahma-sūtras (Vedānta-sūtras) .

The itihāsa-purāṇās was entrusted to Romaharṣaṇa Sūta and Śukadeva Gosvāmī (Vyāsa’s son), who later became the first person to publicly recite the Bhāgavatam.

Each of these scriptures contains thousands of millions of verses, a feat that is impossible for a common man.

One can only imagine what potency it took for Vyāsa to write in that way. For this factual reason, Veda-vyāsa is considered to be an incarnation of Lord Kṛṣṇa.

Lord Nārāyaṇa Himself appeared as Vyāsa.

Therefore the present Vyāsa is Kṛṣṇa-dvaipāyana Vyāsa, for He is Lord Nārāyaṇa Himself and not an ordinary śaktyāveśa-avatāra.

vyAsAya vishNu-rUpAya vyAsa-rUpAya vishNave
namo vai Brahma-nidhaye vAsishtAya namo namaH.

 

[ My repeated salutations to vyAsa who is a form of vishNu and to
vishNu who is a form of vyAsa- sage vyAsa, who is a descendent
of vasishta and who is a treasure of brahman, (i.e. vedas). ]

The Second Shloka of Srimadh Bhagvatham (Mangalacharana shloka)
dharmaḥ projjhita-kaitavo ’tra paramo nirmatsarāṇā satāṁ
vedyaṁ vāstavam atra vastu śivadaṁ tāpa-trayonmūlanam
śrīmad-bhāgavate mahā-muni-kṛte kiṁ vā parair īśvaraḥ
sadyo hṛdy avarudhyate ’tra kṛtibhiḥ śuśrūṣubhis tat-kṣaṇāt
Completely rejecting all religious activities
which are materially motivated,
this Bhāgavata Purāṇa propounds the highest truth,
which is understandable by those devotees who are fully pure in heart
The highest truth is reality distinguished from illusion for the welfare of all. Such truth uproots the threefold miseries.
This beautiful Bhāgavatam, compiled by the great sage Vyāsadeva [in his maturity], is sufficient in itself for God realization.
What is the need of any other scripture?
As soon as one attentively and submissively hears the message of Bhāgavatam, by this culture of knowledge the Supreme
Lord is established within his heart.
krishna in heart

Hare Krishna.
