“O Vyasadeva, your vision is completely perfect. Your good fame is spotless. You are firm in vow and situated in truthfulness. And thus you can think of the pastimes of the Lord in trance for the liberation of the people in general from all material bondage.” (SB 1.5.13)
Each and every word of Srimad-Bhagavatam is full of volumes of explanation—each and every word. This is Srimad-Bhagavatam. Vidya-bhagavatavadhi. (Varta-sahitya) One’s learning will be understood when he’s able to understand Srimad-Bhagavatam. Vidya. Vidya means learning—not this science, that science. If one can understand Srimad-Bhagavatam in true perspective, then he’s understood to have finished his all educational advancement. Avadhi. Avadhi means “this is the limit of education.” Vidya-bhagavatavadhi.
—Srila Prabhupada, talk on Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.5.13, June 13, 1969, New Vrindaban
