As we have discussed many times, the Personality of Godhead, Viá¹£á¹u, resides within each and every universe in two capacities, namely as the GarbhodakaÅÄyÄ« Viá¹£á¹u and the Ká¹£Ä«rodakaÅÄyÄ« Viá¹£á¹u. The Ká¹£Ä«rodakaÅÄyÄ« Viá¹£á¹u has His own planet on the northern top of the universe, and there is a great ocean of milk where the Lord resides on the bed of the Ananta incarnation of Baladeva. Thus MahÄrÄja Yudhiá¹£á¹hira has compared the Yadu dynasty to the Ocean of Milk and ÅrÄ« BalarÄma to the Ananta where Lord Ká¹á¹£á¹a resides. He has compared the citizens of DvÄrakÄ to the liberated inhabitants of the Vaikuá¹á¹halokas. Beyond the material sky, further than we can see with our eyes and beyond the sevenfold coverings of the universe, there is the Causal Ocean in which all the universes are floating like footballs, and beyond the Causal Ocean there is an unlimited span of spiritual sky generally known as the effulgence of Brahman. Within this effulgence there are innumerable spiritual planets, and they are known as the Vaikuá¹á¹ha planets. Each and every Vaikuá¹á¹ha planet is many, many times bigger than the biggest universe within the material world, and in each of them there are innumerable inhabitants who look exactly like Lord Viá¹£á¹u. These inhabitants are known as the MahÄ-pauruá¹£ikas, or persons directly engaged in the service of the Lord. They are happy in those planets and are without any kind of misery, and they live perpetually in full youthfulness, enjoying life in full bliss and knowledge without fear of birth, death, old age or disease, and without the influence of kÄla, eternal time. MahÄrÄja Yudhiá¹£á¹hira has compared the inhabitants of DvÄrakÄ to the MahÄ-pauruá¹£ikas of Vaikuá¹á¹haloka because they are so happy with the Lord. In the Bhagavad-gÄ«tÄ there are many references to the Vaikuá¹á¹halokas, and they are mentioned there as mad-dhÄma, or the kingdom of the Lord.
