Devotees are beyond the wheel of time (SB 3.21.8), at least the perfect devotees. And what about us? Are there no rewards for the sadhaka? But bhakti at any stage of our development is beyond the gunas.
Even faith the first step is spiritual, not material. The only problem is that we do not practice it continuously. Between our acts of devotion (most of the time) we submit to the wheel of time.
