Only a human being is one who has dedication towards God, parents and teachers:  Devaki Nandan Thakur


Ranchi: Devaki Nandan Thakur, renowned speaker of Shrimad Bhagwat Katha, emphasized the fulfillment of desires and spiritual liberation through listening to the sacred scriptures. Speaking at a program organized by the Parashuram Youth Wing in Medininagar, the headquarters of Palamu district, Thakur highlighted the significance of Shrimad Bhagwat Katha in providing salvation from the worldly entanglements.

Quoting a conversation between Radha Rani and Lord Krishna, Thakur conveyed Krishna’s perspective on the sadness he feels witnessing the actions and pursuits of individuals in the Kali Yuga. According to Krishna, people in this age are ensnared in the illusions of Maya-Moha, leading to genuine sorrow. Krishna suggested that by listening to the Shrimad Bhagwat Katha, individuals can find their way to him.

Thakur emphasized the importance of devotion to God, parents, and teachers, asserting that true humanity lies in surrendering to them. He urged people to live according to the scriptures and avoid falling into the negative influence of wrong friends, as they can lead one astray.

Drawing from a narrative in Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran, Thakur discussed the role of karma in determining joy and sorrow. He highlighted the principle that performing good deeds prevents suffering, and individuals who appear happy despite engaging in wrongdoing are not genuinely content. Thakur stressed the significance of maintaining a positive mindset, considering the mind to be the greatest friend or enemy, depending on one’s actions.

Concluding his discourse, Devaki Nandan Thakur shared a detailed account of a story from Shiva Purana, where Lord Shiva narrated the Shrimad Bhagwat Katha to Goddess Parvati. He invited the present devotees to attentively listen to the Shrimad Bhagwat Katha for spiritual enlightenment.
