BG Chap 12 - How the devotee crosses the ocean of saṁsāra

There is no question about the method by which a devotee crosses saṁsāra because Kṛṣṇa personally delivers him, not after a long time but very quickly. Since Kṛṣṇa cannot bear the delay in meeting the devotees, He puts them on the shoulders of Garuḍa and takes them to His dhāma, without the need of them having to go along the path of light and waxing fortnight like the yogīs. Implied here is the Lord’s affection for His devotees, but not for the jñānīs, who speculate on impersonal Brahman and eventually attain Kṛṣṇa. A devotee simply has to cultivate devotion and eagerness to serve Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa then accepts full responsibility for rescuing His devotee from māyā.
