What does Krishna mean in the Bhagavad-gita when He says, "My devotees are never vanquished"?
I received this yesterday and yesterday evening I read, in Nectar of Devotion, in the chapter titled "The First Stages of Devotion":
"So Sukadeva Gosvami has recommended to Pariksit Maharaja that in order to be fearless of death, one has to hear and chant and remember the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, by all means. He also mentions that the Supreme Personality of Godhead is Sarvatma. Sarvatma means 'the Supersoul of everyone." Krishna is also mentioned as isvara, the supreme controller who is situated in everyone's heart. Therefore, if some way or other we become attached to Krishna, He will make us free from all danger.
"In Bhagavad-gita it is said that anyone who becomes a devotee of the Lord is never vanquished. Others, however, are always vanquished. 'Vanquished' means that after getting this human form of life, a person does not come out of the entanglement of birth and death and thus misses his golden opportunity. Such a person does not know where he is being thrown by the laws of nature."
Hare Krishna! I hope this is helpful.
