Surrender means that "I am surrendering to Kṛṣṇa with full faith that He is quite competent and able to give me protection." This is called surrender. Not that hesitation: "Oh, I will surrender to Kṛṣṇa, and in case of danger, He may not be able to give me protection." That is not surrender.
- Bhagavad-gītā 1.2-3 -- London, July 9, 1973
 
Surrender means to accept favorable things, how I can make progress towards Kṛṣṇa, and prātikūlya, pratikūla means rejecting unfavorable things which are not very congenial for my progress to Kṛṣṇa consciousness.
- Bhagavad-gītā 18.67 -- Ahmedabad, December 10, 1972
 
The śaraṇāgati means, surrender means that "Kṛṣṇa will save me. I, I'll not do anything against the devotional service. Even there is torture..." Just like Prahlāda Mahārāja. He was tortured by his father. He had... Kṛṣṇa's mother was tortured by his brother. Not outsider. So the demons are so rascal, they don't care for son, sister, mother. No. "As soon as it is against my personal sense gratification, I must finish this." But be sure that Kṛṣṇa will save.
- Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 1.3.28 -- Los Angeles, October 3, 1972
 
Surrender, means... Kṛṣṇa says that "You surrender unto Me," sarva-dharmān parityajya [Bg. 18.66]. Let us believe this, that "Kṛṣṇa is asking to surrender. Let me surrender. He must protect me in danger." That is called surrender.
- Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 1.16.26-30 -- Hawaii, January 23, 1974
 
Surrender means he has finished his all material business. No more.
- Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 5.5.16 -- Vṛndāvana, November 4, 1976
 
Surrender means you surrender and work as Kṛṣṇa says. That is surrender.
- Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 6.1.3 -- Melbourne, May 22, 1975
 
Surrender means I must be prepared to execute the will of Kṛṣṇa; not my whims, but Kṛṣṇa's will.
- The Nectar of Devotion -- Vṛndāvana, November 6, 1972
