Nimi-Navyogeshwar Dialogue

In the 11th section of Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapurana, Devarshi Narad has narrated the Nimi-Navyogeshwar dialogue under the section of the discourse of Shri Vasudev and Narad

kāyena vācā manasendriyairvā buddhyā''tmanā vānusṛtasvabhāvāt ।
karoti yad yat sakalaṃ parasmai nārāyaṇāyeti samarpayettat ॥
(śrīmadbhāgavata mahāpurāṇa 11/02/36)

कायेन वाचा मनसेन्द्रियैर्वा बुद्ध्यात्मना वानुसृतस्वभावात् ।
करोति यद् यत् सकलं परस्मै नारायणायेति समर्पयेत्तत् ॥
( श्रीमद्भागवत महापुराण ११/०२/३६ )

Lord Rishabh Dev is one of the 24 incarnations of Lord Narayana. Of his 100 sons, 9 of his sons became masters of the knowledge of the self and hence were called Yogeshwar. There names respectively are:

Hari, Kavi, Antariksh, Prabuddh, Pippalaayan, Aavirhotr,Drumil, Chamas, Tatha, Karabhaajan

Once the Suryavanshi King Nimi had a discussion and had put some questions to the Yogeshwaras, which were answered well by the Yogeswaras. This dialogue is the so-called Nimi-Navyogeshwar dialogue.

The questions that were put up to them are as follows: –

  • What is the nature of ultimate welfare and what is its means?
  • Describe the character of Bhagavadbhakt (Devotee). What is his religion and what is his nature?
  • How does he behave while dealing with humans? What does he talk and what is the trait that makes him lovable by the almighty God?
  • What is the manifestation of the Maya form of Lord Vishnu?
  • What is the solution to get beyond Maya?
  • What is the nature and form of the God who is described as the Supreme Lord Narayana? What is he responsible for?
  • Describe the ‘leelas’ (performances) of God, that has been done, is still doing and will be doing.
  • How does the life unfold for the people with unfulfilled wishes, have cravings for cosmic and extravagant pleasures, have no control on there senses and mind, and who often do not worship God?
  • At what time does the Lord assume forms, and with what names are these forms worshipped?
