Who pronounces "Haraye Namah" loudly and helplessly at the time falling, or being sad, or sneezing, he gets free from all sins. A speech which describes or sings Bhagavaan's Leelaa, name, stories, it is blessed in comparison to that which is full of intelligence but not with the name of Bhagavaan. You are very fortunate that you always worship Him.

First of all Vishnu Jee told this Puraan to Brahmaa Jee who was confused sitting on the lotus appeared from Vishnu's navel. You know that the gist of all Upanishad is Brahm, and the same is the subject of this Puraan, because the purpose of writing this is only to get Moksh. Who donates a Bhaagavat copy on a golden Sinhaasan on the day of Bhaadrapad Poornimaa, he gets Parampad. All other Puraan are good only till Bhaagavat Puraan is not there. As Ganga in rivers, Vishnu in Devtaa, Shankar Jee in Vaishnav are the highest, in the same way Bhaagavat Puraan is also the highest among all Puraan. Brahmaa Jee told this to Naarad Jee, and Naarad Jee told this to Vyaas Jee; Vyaas Jee told this to Shukdev Jee and Shuk Dev Jee told this to Pareekshit. We bow to Shree Naaraayan who told this to Brahmaa Jee with the desire of Moksh and to Shukdev Jee who helped Pareekshit to attain Moksh. I bow to Shree Hari."
