With Background Music and Sound Effects.
The Srimad-Bhagavatam is an epic philosophical and literary classic,
and holds a prominent position in India's voluminous written wisdom.
It was written in Sanskrit by Srila Krishna Dvaipayana Vyasadeva
about 5,000 years ago. After writing it, he taught it to his son
Sukadeva Goswami, who later spoke it to Maharaja Pariksit in an
assembly of sages on the bank of the sacred Ganges River. Translated
into English and comentaried by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada,
it is now narrated for easy listening.
This 2 CD set contains approximately
97 hours of narration, using many voice characterizations to portray
the book's numerous characters. This makes the spiritual accounts
very compelling, enjoyable, and easy to listen to - a true meditation.
The Indian background music and realistic sound effects; birds,
elephants, chariots, thunderstorms, etc, help to fully absorb
one's mind in the narration and produce a transcendental experience.
