If you remain a pure devotee, always surrendered to Krsna, you should know it very well that Krsna will give you protection in any calamity. Don't be worried. Simply we must have the faith. That is surrender. Surrender means avasya raksibe krsna, visvasa palana [Saranagati]. You must be faithful that "I am engaged in Krsna's service. I may go to hell or heaven, it doesn't matter. I am going to serve Him. It is sure that Krsna will give me protection." So there should be no hesitation. If somebody is ordered, "Go to hell and preach Krsna consciousness," he should remain faithful to Krsna, and Krsna will give all protection.
