Sa saṁhitāṁ bhāgavatīṁ kṛtvānukramya cātma-jam
Śukam adhyāpayām āsa nivṛtti-nirataṁ muniḥ
The great sage Maharishi Vyasa composed śrimad Bhāgawata Samhita, thereafter scrutinized his work thoroughly and then taught it to his son Maharishi śuka, who was an exponent in supreme knowledge and who had attained ultimate dispassion. He got him to read the text,” said Maharishi Suta.
Kṛṣṇa kṛṣṇa mahā-bāho bhaktānām abhayaṅkara
Tvam eko dahya-mānānām apavargo ‘si saṁsṛteḥ
O Krishna! O Paramatma! You the one who showers ‘abhaya’ (assurance of fear-not) upon the devotee! To people who have fallen into this samsara and are burning in its flames, You are the embodiment of liberation who destroys their samsara”.
