A descriptive analysis on positive psychological concepts and aspects in Bhagwat Mahapurana: An approach to Indian psychology
AUTHOR(S): Ushajyoti Gupta
This present descriptive research article basically emphasizes on the important spiritual psychological aspect in Bhagawata Purana. The Bhagawat Purana is actually the conversation between King Parikshit (grandson of Arjuna) and Saint Sukadeva Goswami. King Parikshit was cursed by a Brahmin that he would die within seven days. So he decide d to give up his kingly duties and search for the purpose of life. It is the most complete and authoritative exposition of Vedic knowledge and covers everything from the nature of the self to the origin of the universe, and touches upon all fields of knowledge. It raises and answers fundamental questions like what is life, what is a human beings role in life, what is meant by cycle of birth and death, what is the relation between God and man. It is the Bhagavata Purana which adds the fifth element of devotion (or divine service) besides well-known four aspects of life i.e. Dharma (morality), Artha (acquiring wealth), Kama (pleasure) and Moksha (liberation or salvation).Bhagavatam consists of 12 Cantos, 335 Chapters and 18,000 verses. Shrimad Bhagawat is the most sacred books of the Hindus. It gives a tremendous insight, a profound vision, and an entirely new perspective to the person who hears the narrative. On hearing, a person is never the same. There is a complete metamorphosis, a complete transformation, literally a new birth. Atman (soul) by its own nature is sovereign – it cannot by nature be bound – whatever bondages felt are sheer illusions of the mind.
