This book is a multi-part anthology.
“The Beautiful Story of the Supreme Personality of Godhead”
Srimad Bhagavatam contains 18.000 verses in 335 chapters and consists of 12 subdivisions of books, each of which are referred to as Cantos. These 12 books together tell the complete history of the Vedic culture, as well as stories of the Lord and His incarnations. Srimad Bhagavatam covers the collection of stories known as the Puranas.Learn More | Video Sample
Canto 1 sets the foundation for the Srimad Bhagavatam starting with the philosophy of devotion. It gives insight into Vyasadeva’s inspiration to write the Srimad Bhagavatam through conversations with the great Sage Narada Muni. The reader is lead from the battlefield of Kuruksetra through the years leading up to King Pariksit’s education on the Ganga River by Sukadeva Goswami.
Prescribed Duties for Mankind
Lord Krishna’s Holy Name saves the fallen brahmana Ajamila while Narada Muni’s compassion casts light on the quality of Vaisnava tolerance and insight into the eagerness of the Supreme Lord to reclaim His devotees, and the souls transformation when encountering devotional service.
The Science of God
Pious and impious inclinations and acts become the cause of our future happiness and distress. Witness as the wicked King Hiranyakasipu is measured against his auspicious young son Prahlada Maharaja and his pure devotion to God after being enlightened by the great sage Narada Muni. Prahlada’s devotional prayers to the half man half lion incarnation, Lord Nrsmhadeva.
Withdrawal of the Cosmic Creations
Pastimes of the Lord in different incarnations are vividly presented in which the Lord protects His devotees such as King Bali and Gajendra the elephant from the dangers of material wealth, lust, pride and the consequences of offenses to great souls in the material world.
Lust, anger, greed, pride and envy affect different personalities from great kings, to demigods, and even to elevated sages. By meditation on these ancient stories one gains the determination to take shelter of the Lords Lotus feet as the only hope against conditioned existence.
Description of Life in the Kingdom of God
The pastimes of the Supreme Lord Krsna, His unlimited transcendental attributes, and the amazing loving reciprocations with His devotees in the Kingdom of God. This sweetest fruit of the Srimad Bhagavatam constitutes the most precious gift for humankind and the opportunity for all souls to directly absorb themselves in the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Sri Krsna.
Hearing Pure Knowledge every day as I work is pure bliss. Then repeating these over and over and over, I am finally HEARING the living teachings Srila Prabhupada left us. I first read The Gita in India in 1965 as a young western teenage spiritual seeker of God. I decided to live my life by the guidance of Chrishna’s teachings to Arjuna (Kaunteyah) in Bhagavad Gita. Now, 57 years later, thanks to these wonderful devotees I can HEAR everyday the sublime vedic teachings. We devotees love to travel and Srila Prabhupada has given us the way to get our visa into The Spiritual Planets. These Original Works are perfect. How fortunate are we! Thank You. Om Tat Sat.
Hare Krishna 🙏🤗

Hare Krishna to, All Glories to Srila Prabhupada. Thank you very much for the work. its very helpful for all.
Amazing selfless service for the benefit of mankind sir. Your efforts help us to generate krishna consciousness and cleanse our sinful life.
Hare Krishna! Thank you for this. It’s perfect and very convenient.
I have to ask whether these recitations are from Srila Prabhupada’s original unaltered Books. Hare Krishna.
Thank you so much for this wonderful Effort.
Thanks to all devotees who is behind this great work to the society.
The best audio book I’ve ever listened, the voice is clear and pleasing thanks for not adding any background music.
Awaiting for SB 8th Canto with purports.
I just found this website and the free app yesterday. Wow. Such a great work you folk are doing. The readings are excellent. The fact that it’s all free is truly wonderful. Thanks to all those folk who are behind this work.
This week I listened to the entire second canto. Thank you so much!
i am so thankful for your reading prabhu. i want more and more every time i think of it.
Thank you very very much for such wonderful service of creating audio books.
I am a Christian but very much enjoy Vedic literature and the tales and knowledge of Lord Sri Krishna. Such a beautiful religion and this site is extremely well done.
Srila Prabhupada would be pleased to have his books available 24/7 anywhere in the world by your service.
This proves beyond a doubt, his message for us to stay connected with the bonafide guru;
“I would live forever in my books”.
Srila Prabhupada stated: “There is no need by any of my disciples to read any books besides my books – In fact, such reading may be detrimental to their advancement in Krishna Consciousness.” (Srila Prabhupada letter 20/1/72)
I was dying for new release, thanks for saving my life. Thank you Damodar, thank you bhaktivedanta vedic library team.
All glories to srila Prabhupada. 🙏😊👌👍
Thank you for such a divine service,can’t thank enough.
Very helpful in my Srimad Bhagavatam study. Voice quality is too good. Grateful for this service by the entire team.
Thank you so very much for taking the time and effort to offer this most valuable service. This is really fantastic. I have been waiting a very long time for this and am so happy I discovered it. I look forward to many many hours of listening. Hare Krsna.
Thanks a lot for the wonderful work. It has helped me listen to SB until canto 5 and now I realize that other Cantos are work in progress. Any idea on release dates? My SB study is now stuck a bit 🙏.. Anxiously waiting for the release.
Thank you so much. I liked the verse and no verse option.
Besides, the option to download or stream is also great.
The sound quality is good.
Thanks once again for all your efforts.
May God bless you.
This is awesome ! The voice is very pleasing to my ears. No background sounds (which I found a bit of a disturbance). I am listening every day. I have a problem with dizziness and reading is a real challenge, but these audio books are a great blessing. Thank you Prabhus.
PS – I also love the option of only verses or verses & purports.
Thanks for the great work by making it available in audio form also but the links are not working from Conto 6 to Conto 10. Please help.
Wonderful presentation Prabhus! Thank you very much for making this available to us!
May I make a humble suggestion?
It would be really nice if you could present the name of each chapter of SB along with the chapter number. That would greatly help me choose which chapter of each Canto I would want to listen to. Thank you for your consideration.
Absolutely fantastic! After a long time having been enjoying Damodar prabhus reading of CC and CB I was hoping for the SB and others. Finally found it here! Damodars voice and style of reading is very pleasant for the ears and heart. No disturbing mouth/nose sounds 🙂 or weird rendering/theatrical performance. Slow, clear but also warm and with balanced emotion.
I have some health problems and reading texts is very difficult. So audio books are a total blessing.
It would be nice with a soft background music/sound, but one can add that oneself by editing or having a second player. It is actually preferred that one can chose the music oneself to ones liking.
Would be happy to give a donation for these recordings!
Wow … just so beautiful … Thank you for this amazing reading!
This site is awesome!!! It is so great to have Srila Prabhupada’s original books available in audiobook format. I also like the options of verses only or verses and purports. Great work!!
Hare Krsna Prabhu,
Thank you for this wonderful service
I am sewing for the Deities all day and love to listen to Srila Prabhupada,s books meanwhile
Was so much longing for the purports to be included which you have my wish come true
I finished listening to 3rth canto and realize 4rth does not have the purports yet and was very disapointed
I will go to Bhagavad Gita and will wait patiently for the 4rth cantos purports and Caitanya Caritamrtas purports
Thank you for such a thought to have a audio book. It’s quite relevant now amidst the discussion that Srila Prabhupada Books are not read regularly. This will certainly give us the chance to hears Prabhupada heartfelt transcendental Vani and purify our existence and the world with such vibrations.
Koti Koti Dandwat Pranams 🙏
Unlimited Thanks for this resource. And thanks again. Hare Krishna.
My sincere appreciation for making the books/teachings of Srila Prabhupada easily available for one to listen to, if one does not have the time to read them.
All Glories to the Bhaktivedanta Vedic Library. Great Work.
Amazing collection available at the top of your finger. Great service done for the world.
Great Service for the Happiness of Prabhupada.
This is wonderful. I had been waiting for audiobooks of SB and CC, which had both verses and purports.
This is wonderful. Thank you so much for this incredibly helpful service. Hare Krsna
For many years I have wished so much that I could hear Srila Prabhupada’s books with the purports. My husband and I are now so happy to listen for hours a day. I can’t thank you enough for making this site available. I hope it becomes well know so that millions of people can take advantage.
Loved the quality of the audio narration. Helps me stay focused on the track and the message of the book.
The downloadable or streaming options allows one to read or listen to the greatest of all the Puranas The Srimad Bhagavatam and The Chaitanya Caritamrita. The continued listening or the rereading of these two books will certainly assist one in the quest of returning to the spiritual world. In addition one can access selected chapters
