Jayapataka: Krishna said, “I am the cause of remembrance and forgetfulness.”
Prabhupada: Yes. Generally devotee dies remembering Krishna, generally. But even if for material condition he cannot, then Krishna is taken charge.
Panca-dravida: What was the arrangement with Bharata Maharaja?
Prabhupada: And there is no question of hopelessness, no. We have to do our duty very seriously. Then everything is all right.
Panca-dravida: So with Bharata Maharaja, that was special arrangement?
Prabhupada: No. It was…. It was punishment. He became so much, I mean, attached with the animal that he forgot his duty in devotional service. That is stated. Forgot. He neglected. Therefore he was punished, but he remembered that “I did it.” You cannot neglect your duty. Then Krishna is always with you. [break] …way, a soldier is dying in duty, immediately the government takes charge of the whole family. So that is…. Why not Krishna? [break] …Krishna visvasa palana. Bhaktivinoda Thakura has said. You know this song? Avasya rakñibe Krishna visvasa palana.
Jayapataka: “If one maintains his faith, then Krishna…”
Prabhupada: Ah! Yes. One should maintain his faith that “Krishna will give me protection. And my duty is to serve Him.” That’s it.Morning Walk
