Oh gyanis! Don't say that brahm is only formless and without qualities. Listen very carefully. If brahm were formless, then He wouldn't have become like the anjan (kajal or collyrium) in the eyes of the Gopis of Braj and followed them like an eager beloved.
That supreme personality of God, Krishna, doesn't enter the impersonal meditation ( samadhi) of great paramhansas like Shukdev and the Sankadik, even though they try their hardest. Yet the same supreme brahm as Shri Krishna rushes to the houses of the Gopis, even though uninvited. How extremely surprising!

Oh gyanis! Don't say that brahm is only formless and without qualities. Listen very carefully. If brahm were formless, then He wouldn't havebecome like the anjan (kajal or collyrium) in the eyes of the Gopis of Braj and followed them like an eager beloved. Even great yogis and gyanis dance to the tune (remain under the control of) Krishna's external power, Maya. The same Krishna Himself (becomes so helpless before the selfless bhakti (love) of the Gopis) that He happilydances in the lanes of Braj to the tune of the Gopis' clapping hands.Oh, gyanis! Why are you searching in vain to find brahm in the versesof the Vedas? You can find supreme brahm tied to an ukhal (pot for  pounding rice) in the courtyard of Mother Yashoda. If you doubt mywords, go to Braj and see for yourself.
The Gita.
Krishn Himself summarizes the teachings of the Gita in one verse and says,
 
“O Arjun! You are very dear to Me. So, for your own good, I am telling you the greatestsecret of the Divine world. Listen carefully. If you or any soul of the world desires tocome to Me and be with Me forever, the easiest path is that he should worship Me, loveMe, remember Me all the time and dedicate his life for Me. Then surely he will come toMe. It’s My promise.”
The Bhagwatam.
Although the Bhagwatam also teaches selfless
bhakti
to God, but the Divine Bliss that itdescribes is something very special and has no compare. It amazed the foremost
 gyani-bhakt 
Saint of his time, Uddhao, who was a friend of Krishn in Mathura and had closelyexperienced the Blissfulness of Krishn’s almighty glory which is especially seen inVaikunth abode. Now see what happens to Uddhao.Uddhao comes to Braj, sees the
Gopis
, and receives their greetings as he had come fromtheir beloved Krishn. During the conversation he recognizes the Divine warmth of Krishnlove in the behavior of the
Gopis
which he had never felt before, although he had lovedhis friend Krishn very dearly. In a while, Uddhao is seen drowned in the excitedness of such a Krishn love which is overflowing from the heart of everyone around him. In sucha state, he deeply desires for a favor from the
Gopis
so that he could also taste the realsweetness of Krishn love; and, with the Grace of 
Gopis
, Uddhao begins to perceive theunsurpassing blessedness of Braj in which the
leela
Bliss of Krishn love is permeatedeverywhere. Uddhao begins to sing the glory and the greatness of 
Gopis’ 
love and says,“The Bliss of Krishn’s intimate Divine love, which
Gopis
received during
maharas
, wasso special and limitlessly sweet and charming that even Maha Lakc◊hmi, the eternalconsort of Maha Vishnu and the goddesses of the celestial abodes, could not receive that;then what to talk of the others.” Uddhao further says, “I adore the footdust of the
Gopis
and put it on my forehead. They are so Divinely great that the songs of the Krishn
leelas
and the Krishn love which they have sung purify the whole world.”This is the Bliss of the Bhagwatam which is the essence of all the Divine Blissfulnesses.The Bhagwatam contains the substance of all the philosophies, Divine and devotional,along with the description of Krishn love whose lusciousness surpasses all the Divineexperiences. This is the reason that after tasting the sweetness of the charming
leelas
of Krishn love as described in the Bhagwatam, the dry philosophies and other Divinedescriptions become tasteless.
yogis
and 
 
gyanis
 .
 
They fail.
But Krishn, the supremely charming and loving personality of God,says, “A devotee who is not trying to find Me with his intellect, but rather he is trying todedicate himself, the one that knows that his soul and I are not just closely related, butthat we are eternally closely related, that our relationship is not a formed relation, but it isan internal and eternal relation that can never die, he experiences Me as his DivineBeloved and tries to find Me, not with any demand or request. He only wants Me to love,that is all. Such a devotee or such a disciple or such a
bhakt 
, I take care of Him evenduring his devotional period, and I don’t let him fall in the worldly mire. I protect him.Slowly as his
increases, he feels Me closer and closer, and inthe end he finds Me.”
Thus Gyanis by gyan yog experience Brahm-anand - of the advait- the nondual , but that is just nirvana or mukti from all the sufferings but not theultimate bliss, So yogis – mystics are better then them who experience somebliss by their mystical practices experience Ishwar-Paramatman himself – who dwells in all – in every atom or living being but both of them fail tosustain or even reach these stage without the grace – Bhagwad Krupa of Bhagwan Shri Krishna, and so the best among them are BHAKT – selflessdevotee of Shree RAADHE -KRISHNA who don’t care for nirvana or mukti ,by their devotion for Bhagwan – PARA BRAHMA himself , by his GRACE – Bhagwad Krupa – get the eternal bliss of Bhakti RASA – which is the fruit of their devotion in itself.
