Jayapataka Swami: These are different kinds of teachings and tests in school. We have to come out successful in these. When we complete all the examinations then only we can rise to the next class. In that way there is always tests in ISKCON. There are material and spiritual tests. We have to concentrate more on our devotional service in this situation. Once I asked Srila Prabhupada, why are there so many strange devotees? Srila Prabhupada said that the temple is like a hospital. There are always going to be a lot of sick people and there are also doctors and nurses in the hospital, and we should not be very surprised to see sick people. They are going to be having medicines and will get healthy.
