We should know that any example or analogy of this world cannot fully explain the transcendental world. Some examples can give us an idea, like, “Kṛṣṇa is beautiful and black, like a rain cloud or like a tamāla tree.” It is not possible, however, to totally describe the transcendental world by any mundane worldly examples. Examples are given to express some idea, but there is nothing in this world that can fully compare with Kṛṣṇa.
By doing bhajana, by daily chanting Hare Kṛṣṇa and hearing hari-kathā in the correct process, with very strong belief, then, according to your advancement in bhajana, you can realize all the truths regarding this world and that absolute transcendental world. Logic will not satisfy you. One logical argument will defeat all other arguments, and then another logical argument will come and defeat all the previous arguments. Mundane logic and argument have no existence in the spiritual world.
Kṛṣṇa is very powerful, and He wants that all should come to Him and serve Him in the spiritual world. He never wants anyone to be separated from Him and to be unhappy. He wants the jīvas to desire to be with Him; so He wants to arrange anything favorable and for them to go to Him—as He did in Bṛhad-Bhāgavatāmṛta. Kṛṣṇa knows everything. If He sees that a jīva has some little desire there to serve Him, and he is sincere, He will arrange that he can go to the spiritual world and be with Him there. But each jīva is independent. If he misuses his independence, then he will go down to the material world. If he looks towards the spiritual world from the taṭasthā region, he will go to the spiritual world by the help of Yogamāyā; and if he looks towards the material world, he will come to the material world under the influence of Māyā-devī
