Devotional Service Transcends liberation

There’s a famous Srimad Bhagavatam verse about this that Srila Prabhupada was fond of. It’s found in the Sixth Canto, and is the twentieth-eighth text of the seventeenth chapter. It reads: “Devotees solely engaged in the devotional service of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Narayana, never fear any condition of life. For them the heavenly planets, liberation and the hellish planets are all the same, for such devotees are interested only in the service of the Lord.”
