Lord Sri Krishna is the property of His pure unconditional devotees and only the devotees can deliver Krishna to another devotee. Krishna is never obtained directly.
One has to follow the rules and regulations prescribed by the acaryas and thus, under superior guidance, realizing Krishna is fully possible, even in this material existence.
Only to the one who is engaged in pure devotional service under proper guidance is Lord Krishna revealed.
The mahatma does not divert his attention to anything outside Krishna because he knows perfectly well that Krishna is the original Supreme Person, the cause of all causes.
The word “devotion” cannot be applied to anything besides ‘Krishna ‘. Krishna is the only subject of devotion. Brahman is the object of knowledge, Paramatma is the object of nearness, but Krishna is the only object of service.
The supreme enjoyer is only one. If we take the position of the enjoyer, we are under Maya (illusion).
