Jayapatākā Swami: He was not a devotee or worshiper of the impersonal brahman that is why when he was merging into the impersonal effulgence brahman out of fear he called out Govinda! So when he came to Vṛindāvana on earth, Vṛindāvana is like an extension of the spiritual world. So, it is easier to reach Goloka from Vṛindāvana than Vaikuṇṭha. In Vaikuṇṭha people worship Nārāyaṇa with awe and reverence, but in Vṛindāvana Kṛṣṇa is worshiped in a very simple manner in different relationships with Him.
