|Canto 2: The Cosmic Manifestation||Chapter 10: Bhāgavatam Is the Answer to All Questions|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 2.10.48
yad āha no bhavān sūta
cacāra tīrthāni bhuvas
tyaktvā bandhūn sudustyajān
śaunakaḥ uvāca — Śrī Śaunaka Muni said; yat — as; āha — you said; naḥ — unto us; bhavān — your good self; sūta — O Sūta; kṣattā — Vidura; bhāgavata-uttamaḥ — one of the topmost devotees of the Lord; cacāra — practiced; tīrthāni — places of pilgrimage; bhuvaḥ — on the earth; tyaktvā — leaving aside; bandhūn — all relatives; su-dustyajān — very difficult to give up.
Śaunaka Ṛṣi, after hearing all about the creation, inquired from Sūta Gosvāmī about Vidura, for Sūta Gosvāmī had previously informed him how Vidura left home, leaving aside all his relatives, who were very difficult to leave.
The ṛṣis headed by Śaunaka were more anxious to know about Vidura, who met Maitreya Ṛṣi while traveling to the pilgrimage sites of the world.
