Smart Quote of the Day, May 31, 2016

Easy

" . . . Sometimes the members of the Krishna consciousness society are afraid of the impending danger of world war and ask what would happen to them if a war should occur. In all kinds of danger they should be confident of their protection by the Vishnudutas or the Supreme Personality of Godhead, as Krishna Himself confirms in the Bhagavad-gita (9.31): kaunteya pratijanihi na me bhaktah pranasyati. 'O son of Kunti, declare it boldly that My devotee never perishes.' Material danger is not meant for devotees."

Today's Smart Quote is from A Second Chance, Chapter 21, in the section entitled, "Confidential Knowledge."

. . .the Vishnudutas are worshiped with respectful obeisances by the demigods and are always very alert to protect the devotees of the Lord from the hands of enemies, from natural disturbances, and from all dangerous conditions in this material world. Sometimes the members of the Krishna consciousness society are afraid of the impending danger of world war and ask what would happen to them if a war should occur. In all kinds of danger they should be confident of their protection by the Vishnudutas or the Supreme Personality of Godhead, as Krishna Himself confirms in the Bhagavad-gita ( 9.31): kaunteya pratijanihi na me bhaktah pranasyati. "O son of Kunti, declare it boldly that My devotee never perishes."

Material danger is not meant for devotees. This is also confirmed in the Srimad-Bhagavatam ( 10.14.58): padam padam yad vipadam na tesham. In this material world there are dangers at every step, but they are not meant for devotees who have fully surrendered unto the lotus feet of the Lord. The pure devotees of Lord Vishnu may rest assured that the Lord will protect them, and as long as they are in this material world they should fully engage in devotional service by preaching the message of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Lord Krishna, namely chanting Hare Krishna and the other aspects of Krishna consciousness.
