Those who are against devotees must be against Kṛṣṇa, because Kṛṣṇa has given His heart to the devotees, and the devotees have given their hearts to Kṛṣṇa and Gurudeva. So, they are also against Bhagavān or Kṛṣṇa. Hence, Droṇācārya refused to teach Ekalavya. He said, “You only want to learn archery for your sense gratification and you are against the bhaktas. So, I will not teach you.” But Ekalavya could not understand the consideration of Droṇācārya.
