As long as one does not inquire about the spiritual values of life,
one is defeated and subjected to miseries arising from ignorance. Be it
sinful or pious, karma has its resultant actions. If a person is engaged
in any kind of karma, his mind is called karmatmaka, colored with
fruitive activity. As long as the mind is impure, consciousness is
unclear, and as long as one is absorbed in fruitive activity, he has to
accept a material body.
anena yogena yathopadesam
samyag vyapohyoparameta yogat
As I have advised you, My dear sons, you should act accordingly. Be
very careful. By these means you will be freed from the ignorance of the
desire for fruitive activity, and the knot of bondage in the heart will
be completely severed. For further advancement, you should also give up
the means. That is, you should not become attached to the process of
idam sariram mama durvibhavyam

My transcendental body [sac-cid-ananda-vigraha] looks exactly like a
human form, but it is not a material human body. It is inconceivable. I
am not forced by nature to accept a particular type of body; I take on a
body by My own sweet will. My heart is also spiritual, and I always think
of the welfare of My devotees. Therefore within My heart can be found the
process of devotional service, which is meant for the devotees. Far from
My heart have I abandoned irreligion [adharma] and nondevotional
activities. They do not appeal to Me. Due to all these transcendental
qualities, people generally pray to Me as Rsabhadeva, the Supreme
Personality of Godhead, the best of all living entities.

Of the two energies manifest [spirit and dull matter], beings
possessing living force [vegetables, grass, trees and plants] are
superior to dull matter [stone, earth, etc.]. Superior to nonmoving
plants and vegetables are worms and snakes, which can move. Superior to
worms and snakes are animals that have developed intelligence. Superior
to animals are human beings, and superior to human beings are ghosts
because they have no material bodies. Superior to ghosts are the
Gandharvas, and superior to them are the Siddhas. Superior to the Siddhas
are the Kinnaras, and superior to them are the asuras. Superior to the
asuras are the demigods, and of the demigods, Indra, the King of heaven,
is supreme. Superior to Indra are the direct sons of Lord Brahma, sons
like King Daksa, and supreme among Brahma’s sons is Lord Siva. Since Lord
Siva is the son of Lord Brahma, Brahma is considered superior, but Brahma
is also subordinate to Me, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Because I
am inclined to the brahmanas, the brahmanas are best of all.

pasyami viprah kim atah param tu

O respectful brahmanas, as far as I am concerned, no one is equal or
superior to the brahmanas in this world. I do not find anyone comparable
to them. When people know My motive after performing rituals according to
the Vedic principles, they offer food to Me with faith and love through
the mouth of a brahmana. When food is thus offered unto Me, I eat it with
full satisfaction. Indeed, I derive more pleasure from food offered in
that way than from the food offered in the sacrificial fire.
dhrta tanur usati me purani
yeneha sattvam paramam pavitram
samo damah satyam anugrahas ca

The Vedas are My eternal transcendental sound incarnation. Therefore
the Vedas are sabda-brahma. In this world, the brahmanas thoroughly study
all the Vedas, and because they assimilate the Vedic conclusions, they
are also to be considered the Vedas personified. The brahmanas are
situated in the supreme transcendental mode of nature–sattva-guna.
Because of this, they are fixed in mind control [sama], sense control
[dama], and truthfulness [satya]. They describe the Vedas in their
original sense, and out of mercy [anugraha] they preach the purpose of
the Vedas to all conditioned souls. They practice penance [tapasya] and
tolerance [titiksa], and they realize the position of the living entity
and the Supreme Lord [anubhava]. These are the eight qualifications of
the brahmanas. Therefore among all living entities, no one is superior to
ayam avataro rajasopapluta-kaivalyopasiksanarthah.
In this age of Kali, people are overwhelmed by the modes of passion
and ignorance. Lord Rsabhadeva incarnated Himself to deliver them from
the clutches of maya.

relieved from the various tribulations of material existence. By doing
this, the devotees enjoy supreme bliss, and liberation personified comes
to serve them. Nonetheless, they do not accept that service, even if it
is offered by the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself. For the
devotees, liberation [mukti] is very unimportant because, having attained
the Lord’s transcendental loving service, they have attained everything
desirable and have transcended all material desires

Bharata created five sons in the womb of Pancajani, his wife. These sons
were named Sumati, Rastrabhrta, Sudarsana, Avarana and Dhumraketu.

Formerly this planet was known as Ajanabha-varsa, but since Maharaja
Bharata’s reign, it has become known as Bharata-varsa.

After performing the preliminaries of various sacrifices, Maharaja
Bharata offered the results in the name of religion to the Supreme
Personality of Godhead, Vasudeva. In other words, he performed all the
yajnas for the satisfaction of Lord Vasudeva, Krsna. Maharaja Bharata
thought that since the demigods were different parts of Vasudeva’s body,
He controls those who are explained in the Vedic mantras. By thinking in
this way, Maharaja Bharata was freed from all material contamination,
such as attachment, lust and greed. When the priests were about to offer
the sacrificial ingredients into the fire, Maharaja Bharata expertly
understood how the offering made to different demigods was simply an
offering to the different limbs of the Lord. For instance, Indra is the
arm of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and Surya [the sun] is His
eye. Thus Maharaja Bharata considered that the oblations offered to
different demigods were actually offered unto the different limbs of Lord

In this way, being purified by ritualistic sacrifices, the heart of
Maharaja Bharata was completely uncontaminated. His devotional service
unto Vasudeva, Lord Krsna, increased day after day. Lord Krsna, the son
of Vasudeva, is the original Personality of Godhead manifest as the
Supersoul [Paramatma] as well as the impersonal Brahman. Yogis meditate
upon the localized Paramatma situated in the heart, jnanis worship the
impersonal Brahman as the Supreme Absolute Truth, and devotees worship
Vasudeva, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, whose transcendental body
is described in the sastras. His body is decorated with the Srivatsa, the
Kaustubha jewel and a flower garland, and His hands hold a conchshell,
disc, club and lotus flower. Devotees like Narada always think of Him
within their hearts.

In Pulaha-asrama is the Gandaki River, which is the best of all
rivers. The salagrama-sila, the marble pebbles, purify all those places.
On each and every marble pebble, up and down, circles like navels are

kanda-mula-phalopaharais ca samihamano bhagavata

In the gardens of Pulaha-asrama, Maharaja Bharata lived alone and
collected a variety of flowers, twigs and tulasi leaves. He also
collected the water of the Gandaki River, as well as various roots,
fruits and bulbs. With these he offered food to the Supreme Personality
of Godhead, Vasudeva, and, worshiping Him, he remained satisfied. In this
way his heart was completely uncontaminated, and he did not have the
least desire for material enjoyment. All material desires vanished. In
this steady position, he felt full satisfaction and was situated in

That most exalted devotee, Maharaja Bharata, in this way engaged
constantly in the devotional service of the Lord. Naturally his love for
Vasudeva, Krsna, increased more and more and melted his heart.
Consequently he gradually lost all attachment for regulative duties. The
hairs of his body stood on end, and all the ecstatic bodily symptoms were
manifest. Tears flowed from his eyes, so much so that he could not see
anything. Thus he constantly meditated on the reddish lotus feet of the
Lord. At that time, his heart, which was like a lake, was filled with the
water of ecstatic love. When his mind was immersed in that lake, he even
forgot the regulative service to the Lord.

the small deer, bereft of its mother, floating down the river. Seeing
this, he felt great compassion. Like a sincere friend, he lifted the
infant deer from the waves, and, knowing it to be motherless, brought it
to his asrama

Gradually Maharaja Bharata became very affectionate toward the deer.
He began to raise it and maintain it by giving it grass. He was always
careful to protect it from the attacks of tigers and other animals. When
it itched, he petted it, and in this way he always tried to keep it in a
comfortable condition. He sometimes kissed it out of love. Being attached
to raising the deer, Maharaja Bharata forgot the rules and regulations
for the advancement of spiritual life, and he gradually forgot to worship
the Supreme Personality of Godhead. After a few days, he forgot
everything about his spiritual advancement.

When Maharaja Bharata wanted to enter the forest to collect kusa
grass, flowers, wood, leaves, fruits, roots and water, he would fear that
dogs, jackals, tigers and other ferocious animals might kill the deer. He
would therefore always take the deer with him when entering the forest.

Sukadeva Gosvami continued: My dear King, in this way Bharata Maharaja
was overwhelmed by an uncontrollable desire which was manifest in the
form of the deer. Due to the fruitive results of his past deeds, he fell
down from mystic yoga, austerity and worship of the Supreme Personality
of Godhead. If it were not due to his past fruitive activity, how could
he have been attracted to the deer after giving up the association of his
own son and family, considering them stumbling blocks on the path of
spiritual life? Mow could he show such uncontrollable affection for a
deer? This was definitely due to his past karma. The King was so
engrossed in petting and maintaining the deer that he fell down from his
spiritual activities. In due course of time, insurmountable death, which
is compared to a venomous snake that enters the hole created by a mouse,
situated itself before him.

In the body of a deer, Bharata Maharaja began to lament: What
misfortune! I have fallen from the path of the self-realized. I gave up
my real sons, wife and home to advance in spiritual life, and I took
shelter in a solitary holy place in the forest. I became self-controlled
and self-realized, and I engaged constantly in devotional service,
hearing, thinking, chanting, worshiping and remembering the Supreme
Personality of Godhead, Vasudeva. I was successful in my attempt, so much
so that my mind was always absorbed in devotional service. However, due
to my personal foolishness, my mind again became attached–this time to a
deer. Now I have obtained the body of a deer and have fallen far from my
ity evam nigudha-nirvedo visrjya mrgim mataram punar bhagavat-ksetram
upasama-sila-muni-gana-dayitam salagramam pulastya-pulahasramam
Although Bharata Maharaja received the body of a deer, by constant
repentance he became completely detached from all material things. He did
not disclose these things to anyone, but he left his mother deer in a
place known as Kalanjara Mountain, where he was born. He again went to
the forest of Salagrama and to the asrama of Pulastya and Pulaha.

Remaining in that asrama, the great King Bharata Maharaja was now very
careful not to fall victim to bad association. Without disclosing his
past to anyone, he remained in that asrama and ate dry leaves only. He
was not exactly alone, for he had the association of the Supersoul. In
this way he waited for death in the body of a deer. Bathing in that holy
place, he finally gave up that body.
