संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

कृष्णकथाः पुण्या माध्वीर्लोकमलापहाः

ब्रह्मन् कृष्णकथाः पुण्या माध्वीर्लोकमलापहाः।
को नु तृप्येत शृण्वानः श्रुतज्ञो नित्यनूतनाः॥१०-५२-०२०॥
—श्रीमद्भागवते दशमस्कन्दे द्विपञ्चाशत् अध्यायः
brahman kṛṣṇakathāḥ puṇyā mādhvīrlokamalāpahāḥ|
ko nu tṛpyeta śṛṇvānaḥ śrutajño nityanūtanāḥ||10-52-020||
—śrīmadbhāgavate daśamaskande dvipañcāśat adhyāyaḥ
Parikshit exclaims to Shuka Maharshi:
O Brahmana! The stories of Lord Krishna are pious, nectarine, removing the ills of the world.
Who (who listens and understands the stories) could ever be satisfied listening to these ever-novel stories!

Parikshit is indeed the true example of one attaining moksham by श्रवणम् (listening to the wonderful stories of the Lord!). See also the nine forms of bhakti.

This is reminiscent of what Arjuna tells Krishna in the Gita:
विस्तरेणऽऽत्मनो योगं विभूतिं च जनार्दन।
भूयः कथय तृप्तिर्हि शृण्वतो नास्ति मेऽमृतम्॥१०-१८॥
—श्रीमद्भगवद्गीतायां दशमोऽध्यायः
This is reminiscent of what Arjuna tells Krishna in the Gita:
vistareṇa”tmano yogaṁ vibhūtiṁ ca janārdana|
bhūyaḥ kathaya tṛptirhi śṛṇvato nāsti me’mṛtam||10-18||
—śrīmadbhagavadgītāyāṁ daśamo’dhyāyaḥ
Elaborately describe the process of devotion to you and your great vibhutis.
There is no satiation for me hearing this nectar [from you].
