we see Kṛṣṇa behind everything, but externally we have to also take precautions against attacks of demons. Just like here, we’re working so hard against the Council. The politics trying to close the Manor, but we have to do so many things; meetings and public things, we have to go to court. It’s not that we just say, “Kṛṣṇa will take care.” We have to also take care for Kṛṣṇa. We’re trying to protect Kṛṣṇa’s temple. Ultimately we’re depending on Kṛṣṇa’s mercy, but it’s our service to protect Kṛṣṇa’s temple, to keep the preaching going. It’s like that.
