Yogeśvara: Śrīla Prabhupāda? How are we to determine how much of our endeavor should be for our own personal progress?
Prabhupāda: There is no personal endeavor. There is no personal endeavor. Just like these animals, they have no personal endeavor. They are depending on you. If you cut his throat, you can cut. And if you give him protection, you can give him. But they, the animals has no personal endeavor. That is full surrender. That is our position. Remain fully surrendered to Kṛṣṇa and He'll give you protection. That you are thinking, how the animal will live, how these children will live. It is not the children's business, not the animal's business. He is fully surrendered, that's all. Man-manā bhava mad-bhaktaḥ. Other things will be done. Kṛṣṇa says yoga-kṣemaṁ vahāmy aham (BG 9.22). "I shall do that." Why your personal endeavor?
Yogeśvara: Sometimes if we are faced with a service we think is beyond our means.
Prabhupāda: Huh? Where is that? Man-manā bhava mad-bhaktaḥ is beyond your means? That we have already discussed. It is not beyond your means. If you think of Kṛṣṇa who can check it? Why do you say beyond your means?
Bhagavān: Ahaituky apratihatā. It cannot be checked.
Prabhupāda: It cannot be checked. Ahaituky apratihatā. There is no question of checking.
