    Hare Krishna

    Vaikuntha loka is explained in Sri Brihat Bhagavatamrta by Srila Sanatana Gosvami.
    In this epic, there is a Gopa boy called Gopa Kumar. When Gopa Kumar entered into Vaikuntha where Lord Narayana (4 armed Krishna) is the predominating deity. He saw that everyone was worshipping Lord Narayana in awe and reverence. The residents of Vaikuntha were a bit startled when Gopa Kumar addressed Lord Narayana as Gopal and Krishna. Those are very close terms to refer to the Lord. However Lord Narayana understood what Gopa Kumar meant and understood his mood of worship. Therefore Lord Narayana advised Goloka Vrindavan.

    Goloka is the highest spiritual planet. There you may have all the devotional rasa's. Friendship, Servitor, Parenthood, Lover, etc.

    Vaikuntha is a great spiritual planet but worship is only in one particular rasa. This is awe and reverence.

    I hope this helps

    • hare krishna David prabhuji . All glories to srila prabhupada this is very nice explanation prabhuji. but i wish to know more about that prabhuji. 

      • Hare Krishna Pradeep Prabhuji.

        Yes this is a very deep topic. My response barely scratches the surface of this topic. Perhaps some of these wonderful advanced devotees may shed some light on this subject and give both me and you more clarification on this subject.

        Thanks for asking this question Prabhuji.
