Our position is not safe but when one is in the shelter of the Supreme Lord that is the position of safety: the doubtless and fearless path, in the language of the Bhagavatam, akuto-bhayam (Srimad Bhagavatam, 2.1.11). The chanting of the Holy name, awakening our desire to be situated in Krsna's service, His recognizing our desire to be in His service, His accepting us in His service and giving us more and more opportunities which means: more and more challenges, more and more obstacles, more and more material energy standing in the way. Sometimes things move and sometimes things don't move. Yet continue with enthusiasm and determination to serve in whatever the circumstances in a doubtless and fearless way. Prahlad Maharaja is preparing his friends and he is preparing us for this.
