Moksha-laghutakrita: By nature bhakti renders the conception of mukti insignificant.

It is said in the Narada-pancaratra (and Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu 1.1.34):

hari-bhakti mahadevyah sarva muktyadi siddhayah

bhuktayash cadbhutas tasyash cetikavad anuvratah

“The various kinds of perfections headed by mukti and the entirety of mundane pleasures follow behind the goddess of hari-bhakti, Bhakti-devi, as her maidservants.”

Srila Rupa Goswami has also said this very beautifully (Bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu 1.1.33):

manag eva prarudhayam hridaye bhagavad ratau

purusharthas tu catvaras trinayante samantatah

“Only when one understands the fourfold achievements of economic development, religiosity, sense gratification and liberation to be very insignificant can it be accepted that shuddha-bhakti is appearing within him.”(from Part 3 – "An Analysis of the Natural Attributes of Bhakti")

Natural Brotherhood (Bhaktivinoda Thakura):

BhaktiVinoda Thakura

"Gradually, when the offensive portions of the established religions are destroyed, there will be no more differences in the bhajana performed by the various Sampradayas nor any quarrel between them.

Then as brothers, the people of all castes and countries will spontaneously chant the Holy Names of the Supreme Lord together.

At that time, no one will hate anyone or consider others dogeaters; nor will anyone be overwhelmed by the pride of high birth.

The living entities will not forget the principle of natural brotherhood."
