One must understand the transcendental birth of the Lord and the devotee. The purpose of the Lord’s taking birth is to establish devotional service, which is the perfect system of religion, and the purpose of the birth of a devotee is to broadcast the same system of religion, or the bhakti cult, all over the world.His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Srimad-Bhagavatam 4.20.34, Purport
O learned Uddhava, those who fix their consciousness on Me, giving up all material desires, share with Me a happiness that cannot possibly be experienced by those engaged in sense gratification.
Lord Sri Krishna
The Supreme is eternal, self-effulgent, always free from material contact, supremely pure, and the sole all-pervading, all-knowing witness and overseer of the entire universe. No reasonable person can present any evidence that these words may also be a description of the individual spirit soul. These words are a thunderbolt that strikes the tree of impersonalist monism and fells it.
Sri Tattva-muktavali 61
By rendering service to Syama [Krishna] one attains His transcendental abode, which is full of spiritual bliss and astonishing, variegated pastimes. And within that spiritual world, one attains the eternal shelter of Syama.
Chandogya Upanishad 8.13.1
Sri Krishna’s transcendental body is composed of eternity, consciousness, and bliss, without even a trace of material qualities. He is not subject to material time or space. On the contrary, He exists fully at all places and in all times simultaneously. His form and existence are the embodiment of absolute nonduality.
Quoted in Jaiva Dharma, Chapter 13
O my Lord! O unlimited one! Although I was merged in the ocean of nescience, I have now, after a long time, attained You, just as one may attain the seashore. My dear Lord, by getting me, You have obtained the right person upon whom to bestow Your causeless mercy.
Though living within the material world, in bodies composed of the five elements, persons expert in relishing devotional service to the Lord are always worshipable for persons like me.
Sri Brihad-bhagavatamrita 1.3.54
Whenever pure topics of the transcendental world are discussed, the members of the audience forget all kinds of material hankerings, at least for the time being. Not only that, but they are no longer envious of one another, nor do they suffer from anxiety or fear.
