Fate can be changed by Krsna consciousness. Krsna says, “I shall give you protection from all the resultant action of your sinful life.” That is fate changed. If you don’t surrender to Krsna, then you have to suffer or enjoy the actions of your fruitive activities. But when you surrender to Krsna, He takes charge of squaring up all your sinful activities and their reaction. Surrender to Krsna; then your fate is changed.
