(Kadamba Kanana Swami, September 2013, Cape Town, South Africa, Srimad Bhagavatam 8.20.13)
It is stated in the Bhagavad-gita, ‘One who does good will never be overcome by evil.’ That is a very important point because it sometimes seems that one who does good gets overcome by evil.
But it actually means is that if a person has done devotional service then it cannot be lost – it is not lost! Even when devotees die, even when devotees are killed, as we have sometimes seen, then Krsna will take are of that soul. Krsna takes care of the soul and never neglects the soul. That soul always continues on a glorious journey.
We cannot see that and therefore we sit here gloomy, have a terrible funeral and feel totally depressed. Actually, that soul continues on a glorious destination. We should never lose our faith in Krsna’s goodness and never lose our dedication.
