SB 10.81.40
evam sa vipro bhagavat-suhrt tada
 drstva sva-bhrtyair ajitam parajitam
tad-dhyana-vegodgrathitatma-bandhanas
 tad-dhama lebhe ’ciratah satam gatim


Translation: 
Thus seeing how the unconquerable Supreme Lord is nonetheless conquered by His own servants, the Lord’s dear brahmana friend felt the remaining knots of material attachment within his heart being cut by the force of his constant meditation on the Lord. In a short time he attained Lord Krsna’s supreme abode, the destination of great saints.

Purport: 
Sudama’s earthly fortune has been described, and now Sukadeva Gosvami describes the treasure the brahmana enjoyed in the next world. Sri Jiva Gosvami mentions that Sudama’s last trace of illusion lay in the subtle pride of being a renounced brahmana. This trace was also destroyed by his contemplating the Supreme Lord’s submission to His devotees.
