Vijay Kumar:
You are simply being ignorant of the affairs of life. You have not been singled out by God Almighty to suffer. On the path of evolution... every single human being suffers and at times experiences happiness. Both sufferings and happiness pave way for human beings to reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).

If we think man gods like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or prophet Mohammed did not suffer in life... we are simply being ignorant! Every single human being has ones part of sufferings in life... this is how God Almighty ordained the journey of life! If there were only happiness in the world... the cosmic system would not sustain itself... in a monotonous world things would decay and die.

Only when we suffer we realize the importance of happiness. Only in our happiness do we sometimes fear the downpour of sufferings! For a true karma Yogi... a serious seeker of spirituality... the fruits of our karma always belong to the soul atman within and never the human form... still, we worry about the fruits of karma all the time?

It is this expectation of the fruits of karma that is the cause for all sufferings in the world. JRD Tata... a true karma Yogi Par excellence in his lifetime lived as a true trustee of God... never believing in the fact that he owned anything in life. He always believed that human beings were meant to carry out their karma... live as a true trustee of God!

The moment we realize... it is our soul atman that has manifested the human form... the human body... to cleanse itself of the dross impurities within... to carry out its karma... the journey of life becomes simple! A negative residual balance of karma from the previous manifestations adds to our woe... can we really help in the circumstances!

Whatever is our residual balance of karma from previous manifestations... positive or negative... it is in our interest that in present life we continue indulgence in positive karma all the time. This is the only way... the path to neutralize the bad effects of the negative karma in present life! No negative residual balance of karma... lesser the sufferings!

You say... you have immense faith in God! Is what faith is all about! Understand the meaning of faith in God Almighty... before talking of the subject! One who has absolute faith in God... neither thinks of sufferings nor the bad fate that sometimes befalls us. At no stage of life must we ever criticize God Almighty... nor our inner self... our soul atman within!

As per the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... those indulging in thoughts of committing suicide blunder! The human body has been manifested by our soul atman within. Our soul atman living within our heart is the master and controller of the body... in the circumstances, how can human beings... the body think of committing suicide!

The results of all karma performed by human beings always belong to our soul atman and never the human form... the human body! Every single human being nay every living being is simply an instrument in the hands of God Almighty. By following the path of absolute truthfulness... by hearing the sweet small inner voice of our soul atman... every human being can reach the desired goal... complete the journey of life as it was meant to be!

If fasting, japa, meditation and praying were that simple... the whole world would simply indulge and clear their journey! The journey of human life... the goal of life is not that simple. Reaching the 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last in the cosmic life cycle... when human beings gain enlightenment and salvation is not that easy to reach within one's lifetime!

The Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... that contains the precious pearls of wisdom knowing which any human being on Mother Earth can gain enlightenment and salvation... is available for Rs 20/= ($.40) from Gita press, Gorakhpur, India or at any of the major railway stations of India. Yet, how many people truly fathom the depth of wisdom contained in Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!

The wisdom of the Sacred Scriptures can never be gained literally... the uncharted path of spirituality is always traveled alone! This is how God Almighty ordained the journey of life. For an enlightened one... the contents of Sacred Bhagavad Gita become like ABCD... one finally becomes the knower of all... gains omniscience forever!

You simply travel the path of negativity all along. Failures in life do not mean we are a permanent failure in life... it simply indicates we need to improve our efforts to reach the desired goal of life! Every single successful person in life had ones quota of failures and sufferings... no matter what!

Running away from our responsibilities... running away from our karma... wanting to commit suicide is not a solution! God Almighty ordained a journey of 12.4 million earthly years in the human form to reach the stage of enlightenment and salvation! What value of 70 to 80 years of life... how much can we really expect to gain out of life!

In the human form... the soul atman manifests a total of 1.1 million manifestations (an earthly life cycle of 12.4 million years) before it finally liberates itself from the cycle of birth and death forever. It is only in the human form... the soul atman reaches the last leg of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation!

The human form is the highest manifest stage in the life cycle of the soul atman... still, we human beings self-pity! It is only in the human form the soul atman regains its original pure pristine form... reaches the abode of God... kingdom of God (aka Vaikunth in Hinduism) after human beings gain enlightenment and salvation.

I may not have been better than you in the initial stages of my life. Born in a village... I considered myself lucky having learnt ABCD... the basic knowledge of English! To think of gaining success in life... reaching the goal of my life was beyond all comprehensions! I thought if I ever reached the level of a school teacher in my village... it would be a boon of God!

What more could a village lad think of! Starting in search of God at 13 years of age was something unthinkable! Whatever stage of manifestation I may have been (amongst 1.1 million manifestations in the human form)... I finally realized God in my lifetime... reached the end of cosmic journey... the 8.4 millionth manifestation!

The faith I have in God is unparalleled! Nothing comparable with the faith people have in God. All human beings on Mother Earth aside... still, none cannot equal the faith I have in God Almighty and his ways! My faith in God is one-sided. Whatever I may have suffered in life... I never blamed God Almighty for the same! I simply could not... he was the Creator of all human beings... all life in the whole cosmos!

The way I pray... most human beings do not pray that way! I always ask God Almighty to show ways and means so that I can serve the community at its best! Most human beings on Mother Earth pray to God only in times of need. How many people pray to God when not in distress? Most pray to God out of fear or ask for materialistic riches and happiness throughout!

Prayers are not a one-way communication! If we desire something from God... we need offering something to God in return! That is how the system of prayer works. Most successful human beings... the successful corporations have this philosophy behind them. They always serve the community in return for the materialistic riches bestowed on them by God Almighty.

If you sincerely want to get out of the rut of life... try developing a positive attitude! By invoking positive thoughts all the time... thinking good of all... one can not only develop a sunny disposition but help the mankind at large! In return... the grace of God would bestow upon us! We are not to wait for anything... the fruits of karma!

The fruits of karma always belong to our soul atman... never the human body! By indulging in good karma all the time... we can not only improve our future ahead... we can manifest destiny as we want it to be! Having a goal in life is a must. In absence of a goal... our life is like a rudderless boat going round and round in the ocean.

With a definite goal in life... with all eggs in one basket and the bulldog determination of Winston Churchill... one can pursue any cherished journey of life!

Always remember... you have to help yourself. You have to play your part of karma! Unless you're willing to help self... even God Almighty may not help you! Prayers truly do not mean anything in life... except when we desire the grace of God! By indulgence in positive karma all the time... every human being can achieve anything in life... come whatever may!

I an ordinary mortal... if can reach the end goal of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... every other human being can duplicate the same! Never underestimate the power of a human being... the highest manifest being in the whole of Cosmos!

May God Almighty help you in understanding the true crux of life!
