|Canto 12: The Age of Deterioration||Chapter 12: The Topics of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam Summarized|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 12.12.59
ya etat śrāvayen nityaḿ
ślokam ekaḿ tad-ardhaḿ vā
pādaḿ pādārdham eva vā
śraddhāvān yo 'nuśṛṇuyāt
punāty ātmānam eva saḥ
yaḥ — who; etat — this; śrāvayet — makes others hear; nityam — always; yāma-kṣaṇam — every hour and every minute; ananya-dhīḥ — with undeviated attention; ślokam — verse; ekam — one; tat-ardham — half of that; vā — or; pādam — a single line; pāda-ardham — half a line; eva — indeed; vā — or; śraddhā-vān — with faith; yaḥ — who; anuśṛṇuyāt — hears from the proper source; punāti — purifies; ātmānam — his very self; eva — indeed; saḥ — he.
One who with undeviating attention constantly recites this literature at every moment of every hour, as well as one who faithfully hears even one verse or half a verse or a single line or even half a line, certainly purifies his very self.
