Thus the ancient saints who travel in the upper heavens distilled this nectarean and confidential essence of all the Vedas and Puranas.

And as you wander the earth at will, My dear son of Brahma, you should faithfully meditate on these instructions concerning the science of the Self, which burn up the material desires of all men.

Narada, the son of Brahma, heard this account from Sri Narayana Rsi. The epithet brahma-dayada also means that Narada attained Brahman effortlessly, just as if it were his inherited birthright.
