SB 1.8 - The reason for Kṛṣṇa's descent

Kṛṣṇa descends to propagate pure bhakti unto the hearts of paramahaṁsas and munis. Even the greatest mental speculators cannot understand the Lord, who is beyond their thinking power. He is knowable only by one who has His mercy. Women like Kuntī may not be able to speculate like philosophers, but they are blessed by the Lord because they easily accept the almightiness of the Lord and offer obeisances without reservation. This simplicity of acceptance of the Lord’s authority is more effective than showy insincere religious fervor. Kṛṣṇa comes to this world so that embodied souls may learn to fix their thoughts on His lotus feet and devotees may taste the happiness of devotional service.
