Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 3 - Chapter 1 - Verse 3
चरितं तस्य राजर्षेरादिराजस्य सत्तम ।ब्रूहि मे श्रद्दधानाय विष्वक्सेनाश्रयो ह्यसौ ॥ ३ ॥
caritaṁ tasya rājarṣerādi-rājasya sattamabrūhi me śraddadhānāyaviṣvaksenāśrayo hy asau
O best of the virtuous, the original king of kings [Manu] was a great devotee of the Personality of Godhead Hari, and thus it is worth hearing of his sublime character and activities. Please describe them. I am very eager to hear.
Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam is full of the transcendental topics of the Personality of Godhead and His pure devotees. In the absolute world there is no difference in quality between the Supreme Lord and His pure devotee. Therefore, hearing the topics of the Lord and hearing of the character and activities of the pure devotee have the same result, namely the development of devotional service.
