|Canto 12: The Age of Deterioration||Chapter 13: The Glories of Srimad-Bhagavatam|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Srimad Bhagavatam 12.13.16
nimna-ganam yatha ganga
devanam acyuto yatha
vaishnavanam yatha sambhuh
purananam idam tatha
nimna-ganam -- of rivers flowing down to the sea; yatha -- as; ganga -- the Ganges; devanam -- of all deities; acyutah -- the infallible Supreme Personality of Godhead; yatha -- as; vaishnavanam -- of devotees of Lord Vishnu; yatha -- as; sambhuh -- Siva; purananam -- of Puranas; idam -- this; tatha -- similarly.
Just as the Ganga is the greatest of all rivers, Lord Acyuta the supreme among deities and Lord Sambhu [Siva] the greatest of Vaishnavas, so Srimad-Bhagavatam is the greatest of all Puranas.
