|Canto 12: The Age of Deterioration||Chapter 10: Lord Śiva and Umā Glorify Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 12.10.25
śravaṇād darśanād vāpi
mahā-pātakino 'pi vaḥ
śudhyerann antya-jāś cāpi
kim u sambhāṣaṇādibhiḥ
śravaṇāt — by hearing about; darśanāt — by seeing; vā — or; api — also; mahā-pātakinaḥ — those who commit the worst kinds of sins; api — even; vaḥ — you; śudhyeran — they become purified; antya-jāḥ — outcastes; ca — and; api — even; kim u — what to speak of; sambhāṣaṇa-ādibhiḥ — by directly speaking with, and so on.
Even the worst sinners and social outcastes are purified just by hearing about or seeing personalities like you. Imagine, then, how purified they become by directly speaking with you.
