Tolerance equals Strength

We often equate strength with muscle power or physical prowess. Yet sometimes we find that Srila Prabhupada and his teachings expressed strength in terms of tolerance. For example: “The Lord is so kind to His devotee that when severely testing him the Lord gives him the necessary strength to be tolerant and continue to remain a glorious devotee”. (Srimad Bhagavatam 8.22.29-30)
