Quotes-by-Srila-Prabhupada-on-What-is-The-Material-World-Meant-For (1)Just like one is a prisoner. So if he pleases the superintendent of prison, he can get some little facilities. Now I have seen, practically, that one young boy, he was imprisoned for some criminal act. So he was typing in the office of the jail superintendent. So that means he was educated, but he was put into ordinary prison term. He was breaking some stone. But he satisfied the jail superintendent that “I am not accustomed to this. However, I can serve you in some other way.” So, he saw that “He is educated. He knows. All right. You come to my office. Just help me, in typing.”

So this facility one can have. But not released from the prison house. That is not in the power of the superintendent. Similarly, all the demigods, they can give you a temporary facility, but they cannot give you relief from this prison house.

Similarly, if we want to get relief from this prison house of material existence, we must take to Krsna consciousness. No other method will relieve us.
