Jayapatākā Swami: Good question! Why don’t you? You see, we are put in these situations so that we can learn that Kṛṣṇa is our only protector. So we should learn from these situations how we should take shelter of Lord Kṛṣṇa. Like they say, fair weather friend. There is a saying in English, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going!” So we should actually take shelter of Kṛṣṇa when the situation is actually difficult. It is very easy when everything goes good. I just got a letter that after taking initiation some disciple stopped following the principles. Now the doctor has diagnosed that they have fourth stage cancer so now they are following the rules and they want me to pray for them.
