श्रुत्वैतच्छन्दसां व्यासं सर्वपापै: प्रमुच्यते ॥ ६० ॥
ebhir brahmarṣibhir dhṛtāḥ
bahu-ṛcāḥ — of the Ṛg Veda; saṁhitāḥ — 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 saṁhitās 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.
