In this class, Prabhuji started speaking from the nineteenth verse of the seventh chapter of Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 12. At the start of the class, the difference between the cognizance of the Supreme Lord and the jivas was described.
The life of Markandeya Rsi was then described. The Rsi had been blessed to live for many kalpas (millennia). After observing the austerities of the Rsi, Indra became anxious and wanted to stop his austerities by any means. Therefore, he arranged for many celestial damsels to disturb the Rsi.
But, by Sri Hari's grace, Markandeya Rsi remained undisturbed.
