one who has the complete shelter of Kṛṣṇa, his life is already a success. While he’s living he is under Kṛṣṇa’s shelter, and he’s in the ecstasy of the sankirtan movement, relishing the devotional service to Kṛṣṇa. And when he leaves this material body, then he goes back to Kṛṣṇa and serves Kṛṣṇa eternally. So, living or dying, everything is perfect.
