Why do we consider bhagavata-dharma eternal while considering all other dharmas temporary?
Devotional service to Hari is known as suddha-vaisnava- dharma, nitya-dharma, jaiva-dharma, bhagavata-dharma, paramdtma-dharma, and paradharma.
All religious principles that have arisen from the predisposition toward Brahman and Paramatma are temporary [because they are materially motivated].
There is a material motive behind searching for the impersonal Brahman.
Therefore, such searching is causal and therefore temporary.
A conditioned soul trying to free himself from material bondage takes shelter of temporary religious principles in the form of searching for the impersonal Brahman.
Therefore, the predisposition toward Brahman is not eternal.
A living entity who meditates on the Supersoul to achieve happiness derived from samadhi is also following temporary religious principles, keeping subtle material enjoyment within his mind.
Therefore the predisposition toward Paramatma is also not eternal. Only pure bhdgavata- dharma is eternal.
