THE GREATNESS OF SRIMAD BHAGAVATAM
After compiling the Vedic Literatures, Purana, etc., Vyasa Deva was still feeling unsatisfied. While thinking in this way Narada Muni reached the cottage of Vyasa Deva and was asked about the cause of dissatisfaction. Narada Muni explained that because he (Vyasa Deva) did not directly describe Krsna's pastimes, and instead gave a license to enjoy sense gratification under religious principles, he was remaining unsatisfied. Narada then instructed Vyasa Deva in the (Catur Sloka – Srimad Bhagavatam) the essence of the Veda. Vyasa Deva took these four verses and expanded them to compile the Srimad Bhagavatam, which
is known as the ripened fruit of Vedic literature because it directly describes Krsna's transcendental pastimes.
