Save Earth Now! New Bhadra Purnima Campaign

Today’s world is in disarray. Even the so-called educated class of society has no idea how to be happy, or how to do good for the world. Fortunately for us, the sages at Naimiṣāraṇya entertained this idea thousands of years ago. As a result of their thousand-year sacrifice, the enlightened sage, Śukadeva Gosvāmī, spoke Śrīmad Bhāgavatam, the panacea for respiritualizing the entire planet. Because the Bhāgavatam addresses the root cause of suffering, it is a cure-all for the many ills we suffer in this world. Śukadeva Gosvāmī’s sole purpose in life was to see that everyone received this panacea, this ultimate, all-pervading and always effective cure for the disease of material existence. Now, by the mercy of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu, we all have the opportunity to help expand the distribution of Śrīmad Bhāgavatam all over the world.
