Time is a representation of the Lord, and it reminds us also that we must surrender unto the Lord. The Lord speaks to every conditioned soul as time. He says in Bhagavad-gita that if someone surrenders unto Him, then there is no longer any problem of birth and death. We should therefore accept the time factor as the Supreme Personality of Godhead standing before us.
His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Srimad-Bhagavatam 3.26.16, Purport
When the living entity passes from the present body to the next body, which is created by his own karma, he becomes absorbed in the pleasurable and painful sensations of the new body and completely forgets the experience of the previous body. This total forgetfulness of one’s previous material identity, which comes about for one reason or another, is called death.
Lord Sri Krishna
The one Supreme Lord lives hidden inside all created things. He pervades all matter and sits within the hearts of all living beings. As the indwelling Supersoul, He supervises their material activities. Thus, while having no material qualities Himself, He is the unique witness and giver of consciousness.
Shvetashvatara Upanishad 6.11
It is not logical to say that the Supreme Personality of Godhead does not have inconceivable potencies that can arrange for Him to possess mutually contradictory qualities, for no one has the power to understand the Lord completely. The Lord must have inconceivable potencies, for that is logical and confirmed by Vedic revelation. Therefore the idea that the Lord does not have powers that can give Him mutually contradictory qualities is illogical and should be thrown far away.
Srila Jiva Goswami
Many agents and messengers come to this world, but that most powerful messenger sent by God to suit the adaptability of each recipient – the name of that sole agency is guru. Revelation is made possible through that expert. He can free us of mental speculation and bring about within us a revolution of natural spiritual propensity.

Krishna is fixed in the highest truth, and truth is fixed in Him. Because all truth arises from Him, Govinda is respected as truth, or satya.
When those in hell chant the name of the Lord, they develop bhakti to the Lord and go to the spiritual world.
Quoted in Vishvanatha Chakravarti’s commentary on Bhagavatam 2.9.36
Sweeter than all other sweet things, more auspicious than all other auspicious things, the greatest purifier of all purifying things – the holy name of Sri Hari [Krishna] alone is everything.
