The pleasure gardens and groves for devotees are where transcendental narrations about the Lord are being vibrated. This is where the devotees are attracted to go. The ability to truly relish transcendental narrations is considered beyond liberation.

Obviously bhakti is superior to mukti, because mukti is not eternal or complete; it does not establish our relationship with the Lord. Bhakti, on the other hand, immediately establishes our relationship with the Lord. When the Lord is satisfied by our activities, we can attain anything.

What can the spiritual master do if the disciple makes the choice to be kicked and bitten by the material energy? The spiritual master already knows what will happen, and he knows that his disciple cannot be happy by being separated from Krsna. Seeing a disciple make this choice gives the spiritual master great pain.
