Reply to the poem 'Swami-The Sweetest Scolder' of Smt. Chhanda

Posted on: 27/05/2024

Swami replied:-

1)  God in human form will help the real devotees by altering the punishment, which is very convenient to the devotee so that the devotee feels that he is not punished at all while undergoing the alternative punishment that is accepted in the divine constitution. The example for this is a rich business man pulling the railway chain is punished by a fine of 1000 rupees and a poor beggar doing the same is punished...
