the impersonlist, they think that we can only have, om shanti if there is no Jhamela, but the Krishna bhakti is such that in the midst of the huge of jhamela you can still be happy and peaceful. Since life is always from one Jhamela to the next, this is actually the more practical method, unless you want to go to Himalaya and live in the cave, then you can practice the other form of yoga. But for the people who are facing the world, that mean one problem to the next is always there. So by practicing Krishna bhakti, then one can actually achieve peace even in the midst….. if Arjuna can have peace, mental peace while fighting Kuruksetra war, then we can have peace even while dealing with our daily problems, that is the purport, but if one Krishna withdraws His mercy, then even Arjuna who was the winner of the world war at that time, he couldn’t have peace. So connected like that, is a devotional service. Then one feels that the business itself is a devotional service. So when one is doing business with that type of dedication, then whether the business is successful or unsuccessful, ultimately we take it as Krishna’s mercy because we have dedicated it with that Krishna consciousness objective.
