Adverse circumstances

Sree Sree Guru Gaurangau Jayatah!

Nobody is to be blamed for our afflictions and drawbacks. We reap the fruits of our own actions. It was the advice of Sri Narada to Dhruva: ‘Don’t blame others for your own sufferings. We get such kind of suffering which we inflict upon others. As long as we shall have this ignorance of blaming others for our sufferings, we shall not get the Grace of God.’ Dhruva, taking the advice of his Guru Narada, relinquished his ignorance of blaming others and called God’s Name from the core of his heart with one-pointed devotion. All hindrances of Dhruva were removed and those persons who were hostile became favourable automatically without asking for this. God controls and gives the fruits of our actions and not man. We should rectify our Karmas (acts) without blaming others.

God and His absolute counterpart Gurudeva (Real Gurudeva) are impartial. God is equal to all. As He is Absolute (Purna), nobody can give Him bribe and nobody can force Him to do anything which is unjust. But God may test a devotee by putting him in adverse circumstances to qualify him to get the service of His Lotus Feet. We shall be successful in the test – examination.

Sincere souls will never be deceived. So don’t be disheartened. My love to you all.
