Lord Krsna said to King Yudhisthira, “My devotee is not deterred by any
adverse conditions of life; he always remains firm and steady. Therefore I
give Myself to him, and I favor him so that he can achieve the highest
success of life.” The mercy bestowed upon the tried devotee by the Supreme
Personality is described as brahma, which indicates that the greatness of
that mercy can be compared only to the all-pervasive greatness. Brahma means
unlimitedly great and unlimitedly expanding. That mercy is also described as
paramam, for it has no comparison within this material world, and it is also
called suksmam, very fine. Not only is the Lord’s mercy upon the tried
devotee great and unlimitedly expansive, but it is of the finest quality of
transcendental love between the devotee and the Lord. Such mercy is further
described as cin-matram, completely spiritual. The use of the word matram
indicates absolute spirituality, with no tinge of material qualities. That
mercy is also called sat (eternal) and anantakam (unlimited). Since the
devotee of the Lord is awarded such unlimited spiritual benefit, why should
he worship the demigods? A devotee of Krsna does not worship Lord Siva or
Brahma or any other, subordinate demigod. He completely devotes himself to
the transcendental loving service of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
