The Garuda Purana was narrated by him:

  1. In Naimiṣa, the field of the sleepless Ones, the sages, Saunaka and others, performed sacrifices for thousands of years to attain the Heaven-world.

3-5. Those sages once, in the morning, having offered oblations to the sacrificial fire respectfully asked this of the revered Sūta sitting there:
