Just like Bhagavad-gītā and Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, they are called kṛṣṇa-kathā. Bhagavad-gītā is the kathā, or words, spoken by the Lord Himself. Therefore it is kṛṣṇa-kathā—kṛṣṇaḥ sva-kathāḥ (SB 1.2.17), the words spoken by God Himself. Similarly, this Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam is also kṛṣṇa-kathā.

Yadi, yadi means "if" one does not develop an attachment to hear about God... This is the test, viṣvaksena-kathā.

God's another name, Kṛṣṇa's another name is Viṣvaksena. Viṣvaksena is situated in the stomach, and He helps your digestion. If Viṣvaksena does not help you in digesting, then you are forbidden to eat: not anymore. So Viṣvaksena. There are thousands and millions of names of God, and Viṣvaksena is one of the names. So viṣvaksena-kathāsu: if one does not become interested to hear about God… Just like Bhagavad-gītā and Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, they are called kṛṣṇa-kathā.

Bhagavad-gītā is the kathā, or words, spoken by the Lord Himself. Therefore it is kṛṣṇa-kathā—kṛṣṇaḥ sva-kathāḥ (SB 1.2.17), the words spoken by God Himself. Similarly, this Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam is also kṛṣṇa-kathā. This is also kṛṣṇaḥ sva-kathāḥ. It is spoken, Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam is spoken about Kṛṣṇa—about Kṛṣṇa's activities, about Kṛṣṇa's birth, about Kṛṣṇa's appearance, disappearance, activities; about Kṛṣṇa's devotees. Therefore it is called Bhāgavatam: in relationship with Kṛṣṇa; everything in relationship with Kṛṣṇa.

So Sūta Gosvāmī says that you may execute your religious principle very nicely, but simply "I am Hindu," "I am Muhammadan," "I am Christian," "My religion is better; therefore your religion is bad, so I shall fight," this is not religion. The test is whether you are Hindu, whether you are Muslim, whether you are Christian or Jews or Buddhist, it doesn't matter. Whether you have developed your love for God—that is the test.
