THINK OF KRSNA TO PURIFY THE SENSES

8.19: Again and again the day comes, and this host of beings is active; and again the night falls, O Partha, and this host is helplessly dissolved.
20: There is another, eternal Nature, which is transcendental to this manifested and non-manifested matter. It is supreme and is never annihilated. When all in this world is annihilated, that part remains as it is.
21: That supreme status is called unmanifested and infallible, and is the highest Destination. Going, no one ever returns from that, My Supreme Abode.
PURPORT
THE SUPREME ABODE of the Personality of Godhead, Krishna, is described in The Brahma Samhita as the Chintamoni dham: That Abode of Lord Krishna, known as Goloka Vrindaban, is full of palaces made of touchstone. There the trees are called desire-trees, and the cows are called Surabhi. And the Lord is being served by hundreds and thousands of Goddesses of Fortune; He Whose Name is Govinda, the Primal Lord and the Cause of all causes. There the Lord plays His flute, His eyes like lotus petals, and the color of His Body like a beautiful cloud; on His Head a peacock feather. So attractive is He that He excels thousands of cupids. Lord Krishna gives only a little hint in The Gita about His Personal Abode, which is the supermost planet in the spiritual kingdom.
