In the Brahma Vaivarta Purana another Loka is mentioned as the residence of Krishna
. This Loka is far above the three worlds, and has, at five hundred Millions of yojanas below it, the separate Lokas of Vishnu
, Vaikunta and Kailas. This region is imperishable, while all else is subject to annihilation, and in the centre of it abides Krishna.

He is exempt from Maya and all qualities, eternal, alone, and the Paramatma, or supreme soul of the world.
