|Canto 12: The Age of Deterioration||Chapter 6: Mahārāja Parīkṣit Passes Away|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 12.6.60
bahvṛcāḥ saḿhitā hy etā
ebhir brahmarṣibhir dhṛtāḥ
bahu-ṛcāḥ — of the Ṛg Veda; saḿhitāḥ — the collections; hi — indeed; etāḥ — these; ebhiḥ — by these; brahma-ṛṣibhiḥ — saintly brāhmaṇas; dhṛtāḥ — maintained through disciplic succession; śrutvā — hearing; etat — their; chandasām — of the sacred verses; vyāsam — the process of division; sarva-pāpaiḥ — from all sins; pramucyate — one becomes delivered.
Thus these various saḿhitās of the Ṛg Veda were maintained through disciplic succession by these saintly brāhmaṇas. Simply by hearing of this distribution of the Vedic hymns, one will be freed from all sins.
