Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Without devotion to the Supreme Lord Krishna, transcendental knowledge about Him is impossible to assimilate, understand or intuit. Amongst innumerable living beings specifically means humans as all other beings have neither the inclination or the qualification for moksa or liberation from the material existence. Yet among hundreds of thousands of humans only one due to great merit ever endeavours for moksa and among the hundreds of thousands who endeavour for moksa perchance one will actually achieve it due to extraordinary activities from a previous birth and of the hundreds of thousands who actually achieve moksa and reach perfection perchance only one by the mercy of the Supreme Lord will know Him in reality. Yet even though this transcendental knowledge is very confidential Lord Krishna will reveal it to His devotee. This is the purport.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Extremely rare is transcendental knowledge regarding the Supreme Lord Krishna received. Now begins the summation. Hari OM! The paramount nature of the Supreme Lord is specially emphasised in this verse. Of innumerable living entities existing in creation less then one-tenth of 1% attempt to endeavour for perfection. Of the minuscule amount of living entities who do endeavour less then one-tenth of 1% percent actually achieve perfection. The Padma Purana states that even among those perfected only a few such as Brahma and Shiva actually really know the Supreme Lord is Krishna. As far as others are concerned knowledge alone of Lord Krishna is sufficient enough to grant them moksa or liberation from the cycle of birth and death in the material existence. In the Bhagavat Purana it states that even among 100,000 liberated beings only less then one-tenth of 1% factually comprehend that Lord Krishna is the ultimate creator of all. Every being who has achieved moksa in the past and those who are achieving moksa in the present all without exception have been and are devotees of the Supreme Lord Krishna and His Vedically authorised incarnations. This also applies as well to all beings who will achieve moksa in the future. Amongst all these eternal devotees Brahma the architect of all beings in the material creation is the foremost and thus it has been stated in the Sat Tattva text that the devotees of Lord Krishna are the very best of all living entities.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Humans are designated to act in accordance with the injunctions of the Vedic scriptures. Thousands may be found that adhere to the injunctions of the Vedas but hard to find is one who adheres and perseveres until the goal is reached and perfection is achieved. Of thousands who may be found that fortunately have sustained their efforts and are persevering until the goal is reached and perfection is achieved there is scarcely one discovered among them who knows the Supreme position of Lord Krishna and offers all their activities to Him. And of thousands who may know His supreme position it is extremely rare to find one who knows Lord Krishna as He really is and offers themselves in loving devotion to Him.
