Veda Vyasa had replied, that even after writing the holy Mahabharata according to his level best, still he didn’t get entire satisfaction from his writing. On hearing this, Rishi Narada had meditated for some time on Lord Vishnu, and with a smiling face, he answered, “Oh! The great Vyasa Maharishi, I have understood the reason behind your sadness! Though you have written about Lord Krishna in Mahabharata, but you have mentioned about him only in a brief manner. I humbly request you to write about Lord Krishna in a detailed manner, mainly by explaining about his childhood miracles and Leelas in detail, and by doing that, you would get full satisfaction with your holy works”.

Rishi Veda Vyasa has also agreed to do like that, and he began to write the details about Lord Krishna in an elaborate manner, and named the holy epic, as “SRIMAD SRI KRISHNA BHAGAVATHAM”. This epic was also recited by Sri Shuka Brahma Rishi to the great King Parikshit, for a period of seven days, and after hearing the holy epic with utmost bhakti, Rishi Parikshit had attained salvation.
