The All Attractive Lord

Hare Krishna Prabhujis and Matajis,
Please accept my dandavat pranams. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev.

In Srimad Bhagavatam, verse 1.7.10, Suta Goswami explains to the sages at Naimisaranya, that the great sage Vyasadeva after compiling Srimad Bhagavatam taught it to Sukadeva Goswami who was already a liberated soul. On the request of the sage Saunaka, Suta Goswami described the reason why even liberated souls need to learn Srimad Bhagavatam in the following verse:

sūta uvāca
ātmārāmāś ca munayo nirgranthā apy urukrame
kurvanty ahaitukīṁ bhaktim ittham-bhūta-guṇo hariḥ

All different varieties of atmaramas [those who take pleasure in atma, or spirit self], especially those established on the path of self-realization, though freed from all kinds of material bondage, desire to render unalloyed devotional service unto the Personality of Godhead. This means that the Lord possesses transcendental qualities and therefore can attract everyone, including liberated souls.

In the purport Srila Prabhupada explains, that even liberated souls like the four kumaras, Narada Muni,Sukadeva Goswami are attracted by the transcendental pastimes of the Lord. Lord is all attractive and as His own way of attracting living entities towards Him. As soon as Sukdeva Goswami was born, he ran into the forest to do austerities and penance like Dyana yogis. But his father, Vyasadeva wanted him to take up bhakti yoga by learning Bhagavatam. So, he ran behind Sukadeva Goswami asking him to return back, but he couldn't succeed. Later on Sukadeva Goswami happened to hear verses from Srimad Bhagavatam describing the transcendental form and pastimes of Krishna On verifying the author of these verses he found out that it is none other than Srila Vyasadeva, his father. Immediately he ran back to his father and surrendered unto his lotus feet and completely learnt Srimad Bhagavatam from him. He thus became a great exponent of bhakti yoga.

This clearly shows that the transcendental form and pastimes of Lord Krishna attracts even liberated souls as mentioned in this verse. 

We, as conditioned souls, should especially take up the path of bhakti yoga by hearing and chanting the glories of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna.

Your humble servant,
