SRIMAD BHAGAVATAM (Bhagavata Purana); the story of Krishna

SRIMAD BHAGAVATAM (Bhagavata Purana); the story of Krishna: "The Fortunate One is thus the Lord who is known in different forms or incarnations, but also the devotees are part of His reality and are also called bh├ógavata when they are of  pure devotion. Thus there is the Lord in His many appearances, the devotee with as many faces and the book. They are all called Fortunate. To be fortunate means to be of the opulence, or to carry, or live by, the fullness of God's riches, beauty, fame, power, knowledge and detachment."

Webmasters note:

Unfortunately for those who truly understand the meaning of detachment (regardless of their ancestral religion) who have delved into books like the Bhagavad Gita, or other more detailed Vedic sources (such as the one quoted) may eventually come to realize that obtaining the fruits of ones labor (work=money) and remaining detached is quite a narrow path to walk.
