Ambarish: I had read that some brahmans had been murdered in India. I thought, "Krishna always protects his devotees," so I asked Prabhupada, "If these were brahmans, how come they were murdered?" Prabhupada said, "Not all brahmans are really brahminical. Many times people act in a way that is not brahminical but pass themselves off as 'swamis.' In fact, they are not anything close to what they should be." That was a nice answer.
