Acquire the competence to understand the kind of love and tenderness that God showers on His devotees. Pleasure arises from pain and pain results in pleasure. Because the Pandavas were in the jungle for twelve years and hid themselves unrecognised for the thirteenth year, people now appreciate their noble qualities. Because of the many obstacles and troubles that Prahlada encountered, and the punishments meted out to him, the rest of the world now knows how great his devotion was. Prahlada never had tears in his eyes and never exhibited any pain when the demons were harming him. He was simply uttering the name of the Lord and requested the Lord’s presence. His devotion and equanimity in pain and pleasure is a living example even today of what real faith and devotion can do. On the other hand, had Prahlada lived with his father in luxury with care and tenderness, how would his faith be known?
