TEXT 112
"mukta api lilaya vigraham
krtva bhagavantam bhajante"
muktah—liberated; api—although; lilaya—by pastimes; vigraham—the form of the Lord; krtva—having installed; bhagavantam—the Supreme Personality of Godhead; bhajante—worship.
" 'Even a liberated soul merged in the impersonal Brahman effulgence is attracted to the pastimes of Krsna. He thus installs a Deity and renders the Lord service.'
Highly elevated Mayavadi sannyasis sometimes worship the Radha-Krsna Deity and discuss the pastimes of the Lord, but their purpose is not elevation to Goloka Vrndavana. They want to merge into the Lord's effulgence. This statement is quoted from Sankaracarya's commentary on the Upanisad known as Nrsimha-tapani.
