A man bound by the hands and feet cannot free himself. He must be helped by a person who is unbound because the bound cannot help the bound, the rescuer must be liberated. Therefore, only Lord Krishna or His bona fide representative can release the conditioned soul.
Pure devotees, who take transcendental pleasure in hearing and chanting the glories of the Lord, do not care for any kind of liberation; even if they are offered the five liberations, they refuse to accept them
Material world is not ment for settling down, but for getting out.
One can attain perfect stage of liberation from birth and death simply by knowing the Supreme Personality of Godhead and there is no other way to achieve this perfection.
In this horrible condition of life there is only one way of liberation—to engage in the activities of transcendental chanting and hearing of the holy name of the Supreme Lord.
