“In Krishna’s eyes, every devotee is judged according to his surrender and sincerity on how much he is taking commitment to do his service. If he takes more responsibility, he is given more mercy, because he needs it to cross over all the trials that come with his responsibility. You don’t want mercy, you don’t want trials, so you won’t get mercy. As we get more help, that means that we have increased in our devotional service.”
