2401) Whether I know Brahman effulgence and Vaikuntha planets have difference! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
————— Just like if we have got capacity to enter into the sun planet then we can enter. Otherwise we remain in the sunshine. To remain in the sunshine and to enter into the sun planet is not the same thing. Although the sun and the sunshine are light, illumination, still there is difference between the sun and the sunshine. Similarly, impersonal Brahman effulgence and Vaikuntha planets, both of them, absolute, but still Brahman effulgence and entering into the Vaikuntha planets or Goloka Vrndavana planets are not the same. Or, in other words, those are not, those who are not devotees, but impersonalists, they can stay outside the Vaikuntha planets in the Brahman effulgence, but they cannot enter into the Vaikuntha planets. ———————————-——
