"Krsna is the property of His pure devotee, and if we take shelter of a pure devotee, he can deliver Krsna very easily. Prahlada wants to engage in the service of a devotee, and therefore he prays to Krsna, 'My dear Lord, kindly give me the shelter of Your very dear devotee so that I may engage in his service and You may then be pleased.' Mad-bhakta-pujabhyadhika (Bhag. 11.9.21). The Lord says, 'Engaging in the service of My devotee is better than trying to engage in My devotional service.'"
