Question: I was reading about king Yayati in Guru Maharaj’s book, Secrets of Service. It is bewildering that even though king Yayati was successful in establishing Krsna consciousness, worldwide, he was still attacked by Indra. So, are devotees a threat to Indra? As goal of devotee is to go back to Godhead? 2. Krsna says those who are preaching are very dear to Him. But then, how king Yayati was not protected? And what lesson to learn from this?

Jayapataka Swami:  So sometimes Indra, he doesn’t understand that a devotee wants actually to go back to Krsna. And a devotee gets so much good karma, that Indra feels threatened. So he sometimes attacks devotees. That is why we should chant Hare Krsna and we are very straightforward. We do not want heavenly planets, we don’t want anything that Indra has, we want to go home, back to Godhead! Haribol!
