What happens when a new devotee is met by an opponent who tries to test him?

Hari bol - nice article.

Please correct me if I am wrong but I feel that this particular example should not be taken too literally in terms of the results of empowerment. I think its just a word of caution more than anything so that devotees don’t attribute what might seem as mini miracle with taking risks. My understanding is that I think Prabhupada always pushed his disciples to take risks but the key point was to ensure that they were calculated risks. This way we can keep ourselves conscious of Krsna in that the Sweet Lord will provide to the extent we serve and apply our intelligence for his cause. Someone please feel free to correct me as I am trying to learn too. :)

Our Heart in Vrindavana…and our intelligence and hands and pocketbook, too!

I like this frame of thinking, especially the idea of questioning our own actions with relation to its impact on the enviroment. As a westener, it is so easy to leave fans/VDU’s switched on or leave lights on in rooms when they are not being used. This type of behaviour can probably act as a good guage as to whether we are taking Krishna’s material nature for granted. I think many of us have much spiritual benefit to gain by simply appreciating and respecting the environment the same way we take care of the temples. By moving away from plastics and caring for cows and land, I reckon we can do wonders for the purity of our consciousness. Hopefully this will also go someway in trying to please the great vaisnava acaryas by showing are commitment to implementing a worldly view of love and compassion for all creatures great and small regardless of caste, creed, colour or religion.
