“When there is suffering given by Krishna, a devotee does not take seriously suffering. A devotee thinks, “It is the favor of Krishna that he has put me into suffering.” They never see suffering as suffering. It is favor of Krishna. That is devotee’s vision. It is exactly like a son who knows his father well. If the father slaps, the son never protests. He knows that “It is good for me.” Similarly, a devotee is never disturbed when there is suffering given by Krishna.” — Bombay, May 2, 1974
