Giriraj Swami: As in other places, we would go into Srila Prabhupada’s room early in the morning and sing the prayers to the spiritual master. So one morning after the prayers, Prabhupada gave a little talk and then he asked, “Why does Krishna come into the material world?” So different devotees gave different answers, but Dinanath prabhu gave the answer that He comes to give pleasure to the devotees.

And Srila Prabhupada said yes, that was the right answer, because the other purposes could be fulfilled by other agents but only Krishna could come and satisfy His pure devotees. So after Dinanath gave the answer, Srila Prabhupada said, “Now you are liberated because the Bhagavad-gita says janma karma ca me divyam evam yo vetti tattvatah, that one who knows about the appearance and activities of Krishna in truth, tyaktva deham punar janma naiti mam eti so’rjuna, never has to take birth again but he goes back home, back to Krishna.”
