dvah-sthau—to the doorkeepers; adisya—just directing them; bhagavan—the Supreme Personality of Godhead; vimana-sreni-bhusanam—always decorated with first-class airplanes; sarva-atisayaya—in every respect extensively opulent; laksmya—opulences; justam—bedecked with; svam—His own; dhisnyam—abode; avisat—went back.
After thus speaking at the door of Vaikuntha, the Lord returned to His abode, where there are many celestial airplanes and all-surpassing wealth and splendor.
It is clear from this verse that all the incidents took place at the entrance of Vaikunthaloka. In other words, the sages were not actually within Vaikunthaloka, but were at the gate. It could be asked, “How could they return to the material world if they entered Vaikunthaloka?” But factually they did not enter, and therefore they returned. There are many similar incidents where great yogis and brahmanas, by dint of their yoga practice, have gone from this material world to Vaikunthaloka—but they were not meant to stay there. They came back. It is also confirmed here that the Lord was surrounded by many Vaikuntha airplanes. Vaikunthaloka is described here as having splendid opulence, far surpassing the splendor of this material world.
All other living creatures, including the demigods, are born of Brahma, and Brahma is born of Lord Visnu. Krsna states in Bhagavad-gita, in the Tenth Chapter, aham sarvasya prabhavah: Lord Visnu is the origin of all manifestations in the material world. Those who know that Lord Visnu is the origin of everything, who are conversant with the process of creation and who understand that Visnu, or Krsna, is the most worshipable object of all living entities, engage themselves in Visnu worship as Vaisnavas. The Vedic hymns also confirm this: om tad visnoh paramam padam. The goal of life is to understand Visnu. The Bhagavatam also confirms this elsewhere. Foolish people, not knowing that Visnu is the supreme worshipable object, create so many worshipable objects in this material world, and therefore they fall down.
