Why good people are suffering?


Some people say that even good people are unnecessarily harmed. They criticize God. You cannot decide any person as a good person. Did you observe him every minute from his birth? You also think yourself as a good person. Are you aware of your sins done in your childhood? You might have harmed an innocent insect in your childhood. Do you remember that? Even mental feelings are sins, which may not be expressed in words and actions. The feelings of the mind are the source of words and actions. Therefore the feeling may not hurt others today. But tomorrow it will hurt others which will come out in words and actions. In fact, intention is given more importance in the crime according to law. The judge gives more importance to the intention in giving the punishment. You are walking on the road and the ant is killed by your foot, without any intention. There is no punishment for such sins. But when you kill the same ant with intention, you are punished by God. Therefore mind is the source of action.

If somebody harmed really a good person, then also leave it to God. You should not revenge. Why? The reason is that you cannot judge the exact nature and line of the case. You do not remember your own sins. Some times you do the sin thinking that it is good. You cannot be the standard in judging your own sins. Only the Lord can decide. Therefore, if somebody harmed really a good person, in the view of the Lord also, then the Lord himself will punish him.

You cannot take the law and order in to your hand. You have to refer the case to the court. Let the Judge decide, and punish the criminal. Therefore the Lord said, “Revenge is Mine”. If the revenge is justified, the Lord will certainly punish. The Lord will not revenge if you pray Him to do so. The Lord, will not excuse even if you recommend the unjust case.

Neither you have the power to punish nor to excuse anybody. The reason for this is that you are not omniscient. If a sinner realizes the sin and repents, the punishment is reduced. After repentance if you do not repeat the sins, the punishment is cancelled. If the sinner does not repent, he will repeat the sin again and again. Such sinner can be controlled only by punishment. If this is not true the police department has no use. There are some sinners who can be controlled only by third degree treatment. If such punishment and revenge are not required, and if everybody can be transformed by preaching, then what is the necessity of the existence of’ Hell and Liquid Fire’.

If such possibility of transformation by love and knowledge is there, then why the Lord mentioned the word ‘revenge’ at all? Therefore this means that there are some sinners who cannot be transformed by love and knowledge. Some clever people criticize Lord Rama and Lord Krishna, who have resorted to punish the sinners. Such clever people should answer about the word ‘revenge’ uttered by the Lord and also should explain the mention of the liquid fire in the scriptures. If all the human beings can be transformed through love and knowledge such words should not have been mentioned in their scriptures.

The power of sacred water to cure disease and relieving the sins


Gita says ‘Nadatte Kasyachit Papam’ which means that the Lord will not take the sins of any soul. The verse recited by the priests while serving Teertham, says that all the sins will be removed. This contradicts the verse of Gita. The verse of Gita is a stronger authority. Another verse says that one has to undergo the results of all his deeds whether good or bad (Avasya manu bhokthavyam). Therefore at the time of taking the sacred water a person might have completed the result of his sin, which is in the form of disease. Others may have to continue with the disease because the sin was not completed.

Therefore the theory of the verse of the priests is wrong. We do not doubt the power of the Lord. But we say that the power of the Lord is not in the Theertham. The power of the Lord cannot fail in any case. Even in the cases of Sun and Fire, which are controlled by God, are not failing in their powers. Sun always removes darkness. Fire always removes cold. Of course the incarnations of Lord Datta clearly show the transfer of sins of His devotees on Him and Lord Datta suffers the sins of His real deserving devotees. Therefore neither your worship nor the sacred water is powerful without the will of the Lord. The will of the Lord to undergo the punishment of your sins comes only when you are a real devotee by serving Him practically without aspiring any fruit in return.

The Lord gave the judgement and He only gives the results of your deeds. He will not contradict His own judgement. The Dharma deva (Judge) is only His external dress. He is the internal person in all the forms of deities. Therefore He cannot contradict His own judgement in another form of deity. Once in a college a head of the department resigned His headship and the letter was sent to the principal. But the same head was also the principal. The head went to the principal’s office and rejected his own letter!! This incident actually happened in an engineering college in which I was also serving as a professor. The Lord will not cut such a joke. The present tradition is making the Lord as such a joker.
