Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
When cattle devour a newly planted mango sapling, it struggles to live and grow more leaves. But surpassing these struggles, when the plant grows into a tree, then the cattle are no more a threat it. Likewise, when one's devotion is in the initial stages, the ills of the world affect him to a large extent. When he continues to chant, with patience and perseverance, eventually his devotion becomes strong enough that the ills of the world don't affect him any more.
