Answering an essential question.

By Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur

Question: Are karmic reactions the Lord’s grace?

Answer: Intelligent persons consider karmic reactions the Lord’s grace. They endure them and live on, having surrendered themselves to the Lord in thought, word, and deed. They accept whatever great adversities occur to be the reactions to their own actions and do not fault the Lord. Rather, they accept all adversity on their heads as grace and become more enamoured with the Lord. This the Bhagavat’s teaching.
