“Srila Prabhupada said in Krishna consciousness we need to emulate the Coconut or Palm trees which can bend under the stormy weather, but after the wind stops they bounce back upright. Stiff big trees often get blown over.
So please tolerate all kinds of difficulties and remain fixed in your Krishna Consciousness no matter what kinds of tests come. Always try to serve Guru & Gauranga under all circumstances.”HH Jayapataka Swami
