Jayapatākā Swami: You are saying you can understand Draupadī. That is very great. I can hardly understand her! How a person, the assassin who has killed her five children, she is saying, be merciful on them she says. You say that if someone is looking at you and they don’t want your good you get perturbed, but Draupadī, her children were murdered in their sleep! But she tells, be merciful on the assassin. So maybe you can pray to Draupadī so that you can achieve the real mercy. Kṛṣṇa wants your good always, but in this material world there will always be people who do not want your good. So when you face this difficulty remember Kṛṣṇa, remember those who want your good. Those who don’t want your good, they are very unfortunate. Yudhiṣṭhira, was called Ajātaśatru, he knew no enemy. There were many people who wanted his ill, but he was kind to everyone. So we hope that you also be Ajātaśatru that even if there are enemies you don’t see anyone as your enemy. So this is a wonderful state to be in!
