WHEN ONE GOES TO THE SUPREME ABODE HE NEVER COMES BACK

6.6: That Abode of Mine is not illumined by the sun or moon, nor by electricity. And anyone who reaches It never comes back to this material world.
PURPORT
THE DESCRIPTION OF the spiritual world and of the Abode of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna-which is known as Krishnaloka, Goloka Vrindaban-is described here. In the spiritual sky there is no need of sunshine, moonshine, or electricity, because all the planets there are self-illuminated. We have only one planet in this universe, the sun, which is self-illuminated. But all the planets in the spiritual sky are self-illuminated; and the shining effulgence of all those self-illuminated planets (called Vaikunthas) is the shining sky, which is known as the Brahmajyoti. Actually, the effulgence is emanating from the planet of Krishna, Goloka Vrindaban. Part of that shining effulgence is covered by this Mahat Tatva, the material world. Other than this, the major portion of that shining sky is full of spiritual planets, which are called Vaikunthas, and there is also Goloka Vrindaban. So long as a living entity is in this dark material world, he is in conditional life. And as soon as he reaches the spiritual sky, by cutting through the false, perverted tree of this world, he becomes liberated, and there is no chance of his coming back here.
