Does devotion differ when done in a group versus when done alone?

Answer: Devotion is devotion.  It  makes no difference if done in a group or alone.  If your mind is involved in remembrance of Krishn, it makes no difference if you are doing alone or if you are with other devotees, because devotion is very personal. In our scriptures, meditation is described  as done in isolation. 
Whatever way of devotion is convenient and possible for you is fine.  However, when there are devotees doing meditation together, they all have their own vibration of devotion in the atmosphere and sometime this can help to uplift another devotee.  So both  ways are equally good, either doing alone or doing in group.

What is surrender?

Answer: Surrender means coming to a state of doing nothing... when you can give up your own ability to do things  and remain in complete acceptance of whatever outcome that may yield. For example - As long as a newborn baby does nothing, the mother does everything for it. When the child starts doing a few things, the mother lessens her responsibilities to the same extent. When the child begins to do everything, then the mother does nothing. This example fully explains what surrender is.
We must be like a day-old child..., and surrender our mind to God and Guru.
