Self isolation and social distancing (both highly recommended at all times ) afford occasion for study and contemplation. The seven day reading/recital of Srimad Bhagavatam, just the translation, takes about eight hours a day. So here are the daily pauses.
The first day's reading shall continue till Lord Varaha does Hiranyaksha kill; (3.19) The second day's recital then proceeds Upto the episode of Bharat's deeds. (5.14) The third day continues sequentially, Upto the churning of the milky sea, (8.9) Entering the Tenth Book on day the fourth, And ending with divine Lord Hari's birth. (10.3) Day five upto Rukmini's abduction, (10.53) The sixth, to Book Eleven proceeds on, (11.6) The seventh day consists for the most part Of doctrines which Lord Krishna does impart To Uddhava; which devotion commends; And thus the seven day recital ends.
