Why Do I Have to Suffer?
I always help others and do good to others but I get nothing in return. Why do I have to suffer in life despite doing all good? Why is life so unfair to me? Why people don’t treat me nicely?
In life, there are times when you get punished for something that you have not done, while the real culprit roams free. When this happens, you question, “Why did this happen?”, “Why has it happened to me?”, “I have not made a mistake, so why do I have to suffer?” And when you do not find the answers to these questions you become puzzled and upset.
Do you think Nature’s Law is such that if we are not at fault we still have to suffer? No, right? Then, why are we still here just to suffer?
In the winter, when it is extremely cold and you get sick, at that time if you asked the winter, “Why did you make me sick?” The winter would reply, “If you did not take care of yourself, then what should I do?” So in reality who is at fault? The one who is suffering.
Param Pujya Dadashri says, “Once the faults are gone, no one in this world, no event in this world, will have the power to give us any suffering.”
In the book “Fault is of the Sufferer”, Param Pujya Dadashri beautifully explains the mysteries behind the suffering caused due to faults. This will help solve the readers' puzzle and help put a permanent end to the question, 'Why do we suffer?'
