Surrender unto the Supreme Lord Hari vanquishes misery and
charms the heart with the Lord’s divine sweetness –

“O King, what more can I say? The foremost of the Yadu
dynasty, the unassailable great personality who is full of goodwill for
you and always your dear friend – He is none other than the
Supreme Lord Narayana, Sri Hari. Those who devotedly take full
refuge in Him cross over this insurmountable ocean of material
existence.”

[from Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar, Sri Prapanna Jivanamritam 2.12]

“When Akrura came to Vrndavana in search of Krishna, he saw the footprints of the Lord on the dust of Nanda-grama and at once fell on them in ecstasy of transcendental love. This ecstasy is possible for a devotee who is fully absorbed in incessant thoughts of Krishna. Such a pure devotee of the Lord is naturally faultless because he is always associated with the supremely pure Personality of Godhead. Constant thought of the Lord is the antiseptic method for keeping oneself free from the infectious contamination of the material qualities. The pure devotee of the Lord is always in company with the Lord by thinking of Him. Yet, in the particular context of time and place, the transcendental emotions take a different turn, and this breaks the mental equilibrium of the devotee. Lord Caitanya displayed the typical example of transcendental ecstasy, as we can understand from the life of this incarnation of God.”

[Srila Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada Purport S.Bhag, 3:1:32]

Even the lowest of men are liberated by surrender –

“O twice-born, persons who are devoid of all virtuous practices,
who are outcast, rogues, deceitful, audacious, egotistic, addicted to
intoxicants, hotbeds of sin, malicious, cruel-natured, grossly
infatuated with son, wife, wealth, etc. – even such extremely fallen
persons are liberated by surrendering unto the lotus feet of Sri
Govinda.”
Nrsimha Purana

The utter futility of life without surrender –

“After wandering throughout 8,400,000 species, the soul
eventually takes a human birth. But that human birth is rendered
worthless by those miserable fellows who are so proud of their
bodies that they refuse to take shelter of the lotus feet of Lord
Govinda.”

[from Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Maharaja’s Sri Prapanna Jivanamritam, 2.8-9]

The unsurrendered soul is perpetually deceived; thus, the state of
surrender is eternal –

“A birth in the human species is so valuable that it is aspired
for by the demigods. Those who, despite having taken such a birth,
do not take shelter of the lotus feet of Govinda – they deceive
themselves perpetually.”

Brhama Vaivartta Purana

(Srila B. R. Sridhar Maharaja, Sri Prapanna Jivanamritam 2.7)
