Bhakti is not about power and control or about money and sensegratification or manipulation or politics

Bhakti is not about power and control or about money and sensegratification or manipulation or politics
This is why Srila Vyasadeva wrote the Mahabharata for all the fools that think it is about their manipulation , the only thing that matters is devotion to Sri Krsna Chapter 18: Conclusion-The Perfection of Renunciation

TRANSLATION
O King, when I remember the wonderful form of Lord Krsna, I am struck with even greater wonder, and I rejoice again and again.
PURPORT
It appears that Sanjaya also, by the grace of Vyasa, could see the universal form of Krsna exhibited to Arjuna. It is, of course, said that Lord Krsna never exhibited such a form before. It was exhibited to Arjuna only, yet some great devotees could also see the universal form of Krsna when it was shown to Arjuna, and Vyasa was one of them. He is one of the great devotees of the Lord, and he is considered to be a powerful incarnation of Krsna. Vyasa disclosed this to his disciple, Sanjaya, who remembered that wonderful form of Krsna exhibited to Arjuna and enjoyed it repeatedly.

Ramanuja
Ramanuja's Commentary
The phrase rupam atyadbhutam refers to the phenomenal visvarupa or universal form exhibited by Lord Krishna on the battlefield that was described in chapter 11 which Sanjaya had observed in astonishment by the power of his celestial vision. The more he remembered this amazing and astonishing visvarupa the more rapturous and ecstatic he became by its transcendental magnificence. Marvelling in wondrous ecstasy he is incessantly inundated by waves of rapture.
