Who is at fault? Why do I suffer?

Whenever we have to endure suffering when there is no apparent fault on our part, we feel hurt and we repeatedly question where am I wrong

Who is at fault? Is it the robber or the one who was robbed? Is it the fault of the robber or the one who was robbed?

If you want to know who is at fault in this world, find the one who suffers

What are the causes behind your suffering? 

Param Pujya Dadashri gives the essence of all the scriptures and tells you exactly how nature's justice works : 'The fault is of the sufferer'.

Read on to explore the hidden truth.

 

Spiritual Quotes on "Who is at fault? Why do I suffer?"

  1. The law of nature is completely just, but because one does not understand it, he does not accept it. When one's understanding becomes pure, he will be able to accept nature's justice. As long as one has a selfish outlook, justice cannot be seen.
  2. If your finger gets stuck in the gears of a machine, is the machine at fault? You will realize that the fault is your own. Similarly everyone around you is like a machine.
  3. The person who throws the stone is not at fault, but the person who is injured is at fault. No matter how unruly and misbehaved children around you are, no matter what pranks they play, if it does not bother you, then you are not a fault. If it affects you, then you must understand that it is your fault.
  4. If two people get into a disagreement and one accuses the other of cheating him, then the one being accused will not be able to sleep at night. The other person will sleep soundly. If the person being accused remembers Dada's sentence, 'The fault is of the sufferer,' then he will be able to sleep peacefully. Otherwise he will spend sleepless nights cursing the other person.
  5. Once you understand that the fault is of the sufferer, there will be no quarrels at home.
  6. In God's language : 'The fault is of the sufferer,' but according to the world and man's laws, the person who commits the crime is at fault. Do not conduct yourself in a way that will render you guilty in the eyes of God. This means do not see the fault in others.
  7. The one who has more faults is the one who suffers more in the world. You merely have to see who is suffering to know who is at fault.
  8. You can determine how much you were at fault by the amount of suffering you have to endure.
  9. People blame others when they are suffering, and by doing this they double their faults and their problems in life keep increasing.
  10. If a man remembers this sentence throughout his life and applies it to his life's circumstances with the correct understanding, he would not need a guru. These words alone will take him to moksha (final Liberation).

Science behind "Who is at fault? Why do I suffer?"

  1. If a person suffers, it is because of his own mistakes. If a person enjoys happiness, it is the reward of his good deeds. But the law of the world is such that it accuses the nimit (the apparent 'doer' - person who inflicts the suffering). God's law, the Real Law, catches the real culprit. This law is exact and no one can ever change it. There is no law in this world that can inflict suffering upon anyone, not even the law of the government.
  2. If someone blames you for something, surely you must be at fault somewhere ? Why not destroy that mistake ? In reality, no person in this world can cause hurt to another. This is how independent every living being is. If there is any suffering, it is because of one's own past mistakes. Once these mistakes are destroyed nothing is left pending.
  3. The fault is of the sufferer is the law that will liberate you. If someone were to ask me how he could recognize his mistakes, I would tell him to make a note of all the circumstances where he experiences suffering. Those are his mistakes. He has to find the mistakes that lie behind his suffering. People suffer all the time; they must find their mistakes
  4. Your inner enemies : krodh (anger), maan (pride), lobh (greed) and maaya (attachment), makes you see faults in others. The vision of the Self (atma), does not see any faults in others. It is these inner enemies that makes one see faults in others. The one who has no inner enemies, has no one to show him fault in others and in fact he sees no fault in others. In reality, no one is at fault. These inner enemies are your weaknesses that possess you because of your wrong belief of, 'I am Chandulal (replace your name here)'. If this wrong belief leaves you, these weaknesses would disappear. However, it will take them some time to vacate the 'house' they have occupied for so long.

Thousands of households in Bombay  have incorporated this sentence "Fault is of the Sufferer" into their daily life. You can see this statement written in bold letters on the walls in their homes. When something breaks in the house the children will immediately remind their mother that the fault is hers because of the look on her face. If there is too much salt in the vegetable curry, one just has look at the grimaces on the faces to know who is at fault. If all the soup spills by accident, whoever has the look of disgust on his face, is at fault. The fault is of the sufferer.

Now that I have explained this statement, immediately apply it to your own situations. If you are suffering because some one is harassing you, having heard the statement, 'The fault is of the sufferer', you should  immediately understand and accept that I am the one at fault that is why I am being treated in this manner. This understanding will free you from the shackles of this worldly life. Otherwise your vengeance will continue to proliferate.

'The fault is of the sufferer,' is a great sentence. It occurred to me spontaneously when the time was right. It is so powerful and has so much meaning, that one can write a book on it.

This sentence solves half the puzzle and Vyavasthit shakti, (Scientific Circumstantial Evidence - the natural law that runs this world), solves the other half. If you are suffering, it is because of your own fault. No one else is to blame. From the worldly perspective, the perpetrator is at fault, but God's law says that the fault is of the sufferer. The perpetrator will be considered at fault the day he suffers, but today your fault has caught up with you and that is why you are suffering.
