SYNOPSIS: A devotee must always have the feeling that GOD’s kindness has increased his favorable times and GOD’s mercy has decreased his unfavorable times. READ FULL ARTICLE BELOW -

In one village beneath a tree four persons were discussing about GOD. A devotee was sitting nearby who was listening to their discussion. The first person asked that how much GOD’s mercy and kindness does one have in life. The second person showed two fingers and said- this much. Third person showed two hands and said- this much. The fourth person expanded his hand and told –this much. The devotee was seeing all this. Now he was not able to tolerate any further. He stood up and came to them and said that remove your fingers and hand and see as far as you can or visualize as far you can – such immense is the kindness and mercy of GOD.

This is the truth of our life too, but we fail to understand and we measure GOD’s kindness and mercy with our favorable and unfavorable parameters.

Whatever had happened favorable, we presume it to be our good deed’s fruit or our luck. The truth is that it is only and only GOD’s kindness which we have received as our deed’s fruit or our luck. The principle is that GOD increases the favorable times of a devotee. Whatever accumulated good deeds a devotee has performed, GOD increases its reward. GOD does so because of His kindness on a creature. Therefore whatsoever has happened favorable must be considered to be the fruit of GOD’s kindness.

Whatsoever has not happened favorable or have happened fractionally favorable must also be considered so because of GOD’s kindness. We must understand that whatever fractionally favorable occurred was because of GOD’s kindness otherwise it could have been unfavorable.

Whatever had happened unfavorable – our vision must be that it has been so because of GOD’s mercy else it could have been dangerously unfavorable. If GOD has not showered mercy it could have been dangerously unfavorable. The principle is that GOD reduces the unfavorable times of a devotee. Whatsoever accumulated evil deeds a devotee has performed GOD reduces its fruits.

For a devotee there is a clear principle of GOD that GOD increases fruits of favorable times and decrease the fruits of unfavorable times. While giving the fruit of favorable times GOD increases its fruits and while giving the fruits of unfavorable times GOD decreases its fruit. If there would not have been GOD kindness whatever favorable, we are in, it would not have been so and if GOD’s mercy was not there whatever unfavorable we are in, it would have been worst.

Therefore, those fingers and hand that we raise to indicate GOD’s kindness and mercy must never be raised. Because from top to bottom, from left to right and from front to back all what is present is because of GOD’s kindness and mercy.

We must be able to visualize GOD’s mercy and kindness in our life. In every moment, in every action we must be able to see GOD’s mercy and kindness.

It is the quality of devotion that in every favorable time it visualizes GOD’s kindness and in every unfavorable time it visualizes GOD’s mercy. A lively example is that of devotee Sudamaji. He had such unfavorable time which we cannot visualize and then he got such favorable time, which also goes beyond our imagination.

See the unfavorable life of Sudamaji. He did not have food to feed two times. Sometime he did not receive offerings for 2-3 days and both husband and wife along with children drank water only. They wore clothes which were torn in so many places that it was impossible to count. In winter he did not have anything to cover and therefore kept chanting the name of GOD in night as he was not able to sleep because of severe cold. There was no roofing. He withstood thunder, rain and sunshine along with his family without any shelter. It was so said that Sudamaji’s stomach and back was joint because of severe hunger the stomach and back looked liked to be one.In such unfavorable time he was able to visualize the mercy of GOD everyday. By listening to his narration we are not able to visualize GOD’s mercy because by seeing his helplessness and poverty we feel frightened.

Then when he had favorable time it was such amazing that even Devraj Indraji (the head of heaven) would feel jealous. GOD showered such kindness that Sudamapuri (the dwelling of Sudamaji) was even singular to Shri Dwarkapuri (the dwelling of GOD). When devotee Sudamaji reached his home, he was unable to recognize it and started turning back when his wife Bhagwati Sushilaji called him. Bhagwati Sushilaji who never wore a new saree (an Indian dress) who always wore torn saree given to her by others, who never saw any ornaments in her life (wearing them was out of the question) she wore saree made of chiffons and was overloaded with gold ornaments and Sudamaji was astonished to see her. Sudamapuri has such splendor which was beyond narration. In such supreme favorable times Sudamaji only visualized GOD’s kindness. It was GOD’s kindness only that after seeing such splendor Sudamaji did not deviate otherwise any one in his place would have become batty.

GOD’s mercy and kindness are both immense. There is no end to it. Therefore, we should never have the audacity of trying to measure GOD’s kindness and mercy. Whatever favorable time we have in our life we must assume it to be GOD’s kindness and whatever unfavorable time we have in life, we should be able to visualize GOD’s mercy in it. We must always have the feeling that GOD’s kindness has increased our favorable times and GOD’s mercy has decreased our unfavorable times.
