Rshabhadev instructs his sons

Summary: These most powerful instructions are being offered by an incarnation of the Lord, Lord Rshabdev, to his 100 sons, headed by Bharat Maharaja. Some sons are being prepared as become qualified kings to rule the world, while others became mahabhagavatas, and others became highly qualified sannyasis. Universally, regardless of ashram, progressive human life is marked by one's becoming accomplished in overcoming the bondage of material desires and the whole range of fruitive work connected to those desires.

Summary: In this section of Sri Bhakti Sandarbha, Jiva Goswami summarizes key passages in Srimad Bhagavatamwhich disclose that the essential duty of every living entity is to render loving devotional service to the SPG. All other duties which one may have in life bear spiritual fruits if one learns the art of dedicating them to ultimately fulfill this one duty. Because we will be observing the appearance day of Lord Nrsimhadev on 25-May, I thought that the following section of Sri Bhakti Sandarbha would be particularly a very nice meditation for everyone. The very teachings which Prahlad Maharaja offered to his classmates were the very irritation that irritated his demoniac father to the point of his attempting to destroy Prahlad.
