A person actually becomes immunized. The fangs of this material nature are depoisoned. In any situation a person realizes that, “I can be Krishna conscious, and simply that’s my only duty, to be Krishna conscious. Whether my service is ultimately successful or not is not the reason why I’m doing devotional service. I’m simply doing it to please you, my dear Nitai Gaur, my dear Srila Prabhupada, my dear spiritual master. It’s simply… I’m offering my service unto you for your pleasure. Success and failure are yours. I am simply a… your eternal servant. I surrender at your lotus feet. May my service be pleasing unto you. I have no other purpose for my energy than to serve you.”, and by gradually assuming this attitude, then one becomes so steady that nothing can shake, even death, which is a very big test, does not shake such a devotee.
