BG Chap 9 - Those who accept Kṛṣṇa as He is

The great souls (mahātmās) who are not deluded are under the protection of the divine nature. They take shelter of Kṛṣṇa’s spiritual svarūpa, and fully serve Him with no distractions. They know that Kṛṣṇa’s human like body is the cause of all things and indestructible and fully spiritual. They know Kṛṣṇa as the Supreme Brahman with human form and they serve the Lord thru associating with other pure devotees. Such persons have no taste for other forms of the Lord such as the one having thousand heads, though those are also forms of the Lord. Such persons accept with conviction that Kṛṣṇa, with human form, is the cause of all living entities, humans as well as Brahmā and Śiva. Their consciousness is deeply absorbed in Kṛṣṇa’s human form alone. Their minds do not dwell on such things as desires for jñāna and karma. They know the Lord as indestructible since His body is sac cid ānanda. This bhakti, which is exclusively centered on the Lord, is the best of all, the king of knowledge and the king of secrets.
