CC Madhya 25.145 (1975)
- sāraṁ sāraṁ samuddhṛtam
sarva-veda—of all Vedic literature; itihāsānām—of historical literature; sāram sāram—the essence of the essence; samuddhṛtam—is collected (in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam).
" 'The essence of all Vedic literature and all histories has been collected in this Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam.'
Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam was collected by the incarnation of God, Vyāsadeva, and it was later taught to his son, Śukadeva Gosvāmī. This is a quotation from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (SB 1.3.41).
