A devotee is so forbearing. Cheated, cursed, neglected, insulted, insulted, disturbed or even killed! But will never avenge himself. Why? Why? Because he is so forbearing, he is so tolerant! This type of devotional service, this type of mood in the chanting of the Holy Name of the Lord as Lord Caitanya Himself states, this behavior solidly maintains devotional service for the devotee. It gives him the means by which he can actually be situated in devotional service, because he is so tolerant that the Lord cannot neglect! Others may neglect, but the Lord will not neglect. How can the Lord neglect such a devotee? He cannot neglect. He cannot turn away.
