Thank you for your insightful comments, Akruranatha prabhu.
My initial remarks were made in response to the question as to how devotees field difficult questions, such as the one raised in post seven: how does the child in the womb, having prayed to Krishna, come to forget Him, particularly after experiencing a presumably less traumatic cesarean birth? Srila Jiva Goswami points out that such remembrance of Krishna in the womb applies only to rare individuals. In fact, most living entities do not experience such “prenatal” recollection.
However, I do appreciate your thoughtful points. Regardless of the circumstances under which one enters this world, we should not lose sight of the instrumental role that devotees play in helping others reestablish their relationship with the Lord. That is paramount.

Please accept my obeisance. Jaya Srila Prabhupada.
Perhaps this is not entirely germane to the conversation, but nevertheless it might be worth considering that Srila Jiva Goswami states in Bhakti-sandarbha (Anuccheda 151) that it is in fact very rare that an unborn child remembers the Lord while in the womb. Accounts given in scripture to this effect constitute a generalization of the plight of the conditioned living entity. In this case, the description of the praying fetus is meant to glorify the independent nature of bhakti, which is not hampered under any circumstances and can be performed even in the womb. While this may be true, it is still uncommon that a person actually does so.
