SB 1.3 - The Lord is unattached

The Lord is the master of the six senses and contacts the six sense objects (sound, touch, form, taste, smell and thought) but is not attached to them. He is fully omnipotent with six opulences and experiences happiness arising from them. He creates, maintains and destroys the universes without being in the least affected. He is within every living being and is always independent. The Lord is called the amogha-līlaḥ (whose glories are spotless), which indicates there is nothing lamentable in His creation. He is full with six opulences namely wealth, power, fame, beauty, knowledge and renunciation. Thus He is the master of the senses. He creates the universes to reclaim the living beings who are within them suffering threefold miseries, maintains them, and in due course annihilates the universes without being affected by such actions. Just as one smells odor without being connected with the odorous article, the Lord is connected with material creation superficially.
