The Mystery Of Karma

Once a Student who had joined the College a Few days back asked Sathya Sai Baba as to why God does not prevent cruelties in the world and why people should suffer so much.

To which Sri Sathya Sai Baba said wonderfully:

God is only Sakshibhoota (witness) for everything that happens, God never acts. Every single person acts according to what his intellect says to him and he himself suffers the consequences of his actions. Never ever think at anytime that there is anything like good or bad for God. A knife is used differently by a murderer, cook, and a surgeon. But if a magnet is placed near all the knives that all these people use, it attracts them equally, not according to the tasks that each of them perform.

God is exactly like the magnet. Every knife like every person in this world are the same to him, there is no difference between one person and the other, but the hands that operate the knives have to bear the consequences of their actions, dependent on right and wrong.

So also Sathya Sai Baba wonderfully said suffering is not based on God but on our own actions.

Om Sai Ram
