Back of the Book

For one who hears the topics of Harivamsa, which was spoken by Srila Vyasadeva, and which is imcomparable, auspicious, pure, the destroyer of sinful reactions and most beneficial-what is the need to take a holy bath in the sacred water at Puskara?

Sri Harivamsa, Harivamsa Parva 2

The great sage Vyasadeva, has said that the piety one achieves by performing one hundred horse-sacrifices, which enables one to establish four thousand food distribution centers serving and inexhaustible quatity of food, and rewards one with the position of Indra, is achieved simply by giving this most sacred literature, Harivamsa, in charity.
