“The Complete Science of Bhakti-Yoga #12”
2384) Whther I know even at Brahman state, one cannot get perfect hapiness! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————- Therefore those who are impersonalists, they think that they have become liberated. Actually, they are not liberated. The Bhagavata says, vimukta-maninah. Ye ‘nye ‘ravindaksa, ye ‘nye ‘ravindaksa vimukta-maninah. They are thinking like that. Actually, their intelligence is not yet completely purified. Avisuddha-buddhayah. Aruhya krcchrena param padam tatah [SB 10.2.32]. So even Brahma-sukha, the happiness derived from realization of Brahman, is not perfect. That is also stated in the Bhagavad-gita:
brahma-bhutah prasannatma na socati na kanksati
samah sarvesu bhutesu mad-bhaktim labhate param [Bg. 18.54]
That brahma-bhutah state is a preliminary qualification to enter into devotional service. But if one does not enter into devotional service, anadrta-yusmad-anghrayah, neglects the lotus feet of Krsna, then patanty adhah. These are the statements, authoritative statements. —————
