BG Chap 8 - The state the devotees attain

Superior to the unmanifest state of Brahmā’s night is another unmanifest state which is eternal and which is not destroyed when everything else is destroyed. This state is invisible because its very form is spiritual. However, by mercy it can be perceived. This object is without beginning and is not destroyed when all bodies are destroyed at the end of Brahmā’s day. The followers of Vedānta call the eternal and unmanifest state as the supreme goal. Attaining that supreme abode, one never returns. This is the state for which we always hanker but unfortunately we search for it within the realm of time and matter. When we attain Kṛṣṇa’s abode, we along with other devotees, will continuously exult in our relationship with Kṛṣṇa. This supreme abode is described by Viśvanātha Cakravarti and Baladeva Vidyābhūṣaṇa as the form of the Lord. The jñānīs and yogīs who also perform a small amount of bhakti without offense attain the form of light which is the impersonal Brahman.
