Lord Krsna revealed the indestructible spiritual effulgence, which is unlimited, conscious and eternal. Sages see that spiritual existence in trance, when their consciousness is free of the modes of material nature.

In text 14 Lord Krsna revealed to the residents of Vrndavana His own abode, the spiritual planet of Krsnaloka. This and innumerable other Vaikuntha planets float in an infinite ocean of spiritual light called the brahmajyoti. That spiritual light is in fact the spiritual sky, which Krsna also, quite naturally, revealed to the residents of Vrndavana. For example, if we want to show the moon to a child, we say, “Look up in the sky. See the moon over there in the sky.” Similarly, Lord Krsna revealed the vast spiritual sky to the residents of Vrndavana, but as emphasized in text 14 and in the following text, 16, the actual destination of the Lord’s associates was His own spiritual planet.
