|Chapter 18||Final Revelations of the Ultimate Truth||Verse 71|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Continuing further Lord Krishna affirms that even one who merely hears another reciting Srimad Bhagavad-Gita is totally released from all sins as well; if they have listened with sincerity and humility.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Furthermore Lord Krishna confirms that one with faith in Him, without malice and envy, who even hears verses from Srimad Bhagavad-Gita from His devotee is sufficient to free one from the sins obstructing one from beginning bhakti exclusive loving devotion unto the Supreme Lord by which one will become a muktah liberated being. Just to hear this divine discourse from the Supreme Lords devotee is enough to be released from samsara the perpetual cycle of birth and death. Such a blessed one will join the ranks of the Supreme Lords devoted servitors abiding eternally in the imperishable spiritual realms.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Even if one does not recite it themselves but listens to others reciting Srimad Bhagavad-Gita. Such a person who appreciates the words of Lord Krishna and has faith in them and is not critical of a faulty pronunciation or imperfect meter. Such a person from merely hearing this divine discourse will enter the joyous heavenly spheres at the cessation of life.
