" 'My dear mother, Devahuti! O emblem of peace! My weapon, the disc of time, never vanquishes those for whom I am very dear, for whom I am the Supersoul, the son, friend, spiritual master, well-wisher, worshipable Deity and desired goal. Since the devotees are always attached to Me, they are never vanquished by the agents of time.'
This was spoken by Kapiladeva to His mother Devahuti and is recorded in Srimad-Bhagavatam (3.25.38). Kapiladeva instructed His mother in sankhya-yoga, but the importance of bhakti-yoga is mentioned here. Later sanhkya-yoga was imitated by atheists, whose system was founded by a different Kapiladeva, Rsi Kapiladeva.
