The Srimad Bhagavatam teaches nine primary forms of bhakti , as explained by Prahlada as:(1) ?rava?a ("listening" to the scriptural stories of K???a and his companions), (2) k?rtana ("praising," usually refers to ecstatic group singing), (3) smara?a ("remembering" or fixing the mind on Vi??u), (4) p?da-sevana (rendering service), (5) arcana (worshiping an image), (6) vandana (paying homage), (7) d?sya (servitude), (8) s?khya (friendship), and (9) ?tma-nivedana (complete surrender of the self ).
The Srimad Bhagavatam is the very essence of all the Vedanta literature. One who has enjoyed the nectar of its rasa never has any desire for anything else.
