It can only be reached by those who constantly engage in welfare activities and not by those who are not merciful with other living beings. P eaceful, equipoised, pure and pleasing to all living beings do they, who are befriended with His devotees, easily reach the abode of the Infallible One. T he sphere of the luminaries [ the galaxy ], being connected with great force and speed, unceasingly encircles that place, oh Kaurava [Vidura's family name ], like being a herd of bulls moving around a central pole.
Not even those whom one calls the followers of the Vedas are, despite their awareness of the means, certain of such an attainment, not to mention the chances of regular human beings. He who at the age of five years, aggrieved about the harsh words of the wife of his father, in pursuance of my instruction, deeply pained in his heart went to the forest, won over the Supreme Master, winning with the qualities of His devotees.
After pleasing the Lord of Vaikunthha he, only five or six years old, in the shortest possible time attained His protection.
INTRODUCTION - Srimad Bhagavatam - Canto 1, Chapter 1, Verse 1 | Bhaktivedanta Vedic Library
A ny other person cannot even expect to attain, after many, many of such years [of renunciation] on earth, the exalted position that Dhruva, this kshatriya son , attained. Maitreya said: 'I have told you everything you a sked me here about the great and famous character of Dhruva, who is so very much appreciated by many [a devotee]. Repeatedly listening to it with faith one will develop devotional activities dear to the Infallible One and therefrom there is bound to be the full defeat of all hindrances. For the one who hears it there are the qualities of his good conduct and such; the story constitutes [a source of] strength for souls seeking strength and is [a breeding ground for] the honor of those who are thoughtful.
Srimad Bhagvatam : Canto 4 (Hindi)
Carefully sing, in the company of twice-born souls, in the morning and the evening, the glories of the sacred renown and great character of Dhruva. You will find your mind then pacified by the soul and thus become perfect. He who imparts this knowledge to souls unaware of the original reality, walks the path of truth and immortality and will be blessed by the gods for being a kind protector of the seekers. Oh best among the Kurus, thus was my description of the activities, the fame and the great purity of Dhruva who, as a child forsaking his toys and his mother, left home and found the shelter of Lord Vishnu.
He no longer remembered that he had a body and was thus liberated from [also the subtlety of] being materially bound [ mukta-linga ]. The master of the treasury said: 'O son of the ruler, I am very glad with you o sinless one, because under the instruction of your grandfather you gave up the enmity that is so difficult to avoid..
With the misconceptions of 'I' and 'you' appears it, from ignorance, to the intelligence of a person who follows the bodily concept just to be like in a dream; it is that which is the cause of bondage and misery. Therefore come Dhruva - all good fortune to you - to the respect for the Supreme Lord Beyond the Senses of all living beings and think of Him as the form of the one Supersoul in all that lives.
Be in devotion unto Him whose lotus feet are worth the worship, as they deliver from the material existence and cut the knot of material entanglement; although He, to His potency of the modes, is connected with it, is He aloof by His inconceivable potency. Maitreya said: 'He, by the king of the Yakshas being offered a benediction, asked, as a first class intelligent and thoughtful devotee of the Lord, for the continuous remembrance by which one without difficulty crosses over the unsurpassable ocean of nescience.
He subsequently, by sacrificial ceremonies and great charities, worshiped, with all he had, could do and find support from, the Ruler of all Sacrifice, the objective who awards all results. Unrelenting rendering service unto the one infallible Soul above all, saw he only Him, the Almighty One, the Supreme Spirit situated in all living beings. He thus endowed with godly qualities, of respect for the brahmins and the poor and being the kind protector of the principles of religion, was considered the father of the people.
For the thirty-six thousand years of his rule over the planet Earth, he by enjoyment diminished the effects of the good deeds and by austerity diminished the consequences of the inauspicious. Thus the great soul after the passage of many, many years, free from agitated senses, favorably executed the three kinds of worldly action [the regulation of religion, economy and gratification] and then handed the royal throne over to his son.
He realized that this universe made of the external energy was to the living being a phantasmagoria prepared by ignorange like in a dream.
