Dadashri: Everyday you read about theft and various other crimes in the newspapers, but you should not become alarmed or anxious. Thoughts and worries about whether or not the same will happen to you are negative and these are the mistakes that bind you. Instead, why not just live positively and naturally? You will only be robbed if it is in your karmic account. If it is not in your karma, then no one in this world can touch you, so be fearless. The newspapers will print anything but you should not be afraid of the news. It should not worry you even if thousands of people were being robbed.
No one has any control over you. If you happen to get robbed, all you need to do is ask yourself who is really suffering and then move on.
The world is not meant for suffering, it is meant for enjoying. People receive that which is due to them according to their karmic account. Why are some people happy while others are suffering? It is because they have brought such accounts with them.
Many people have written the statement : 'The Fault is of the Sufferer' in large print, on their walls at home, so that they are reminded of who is at fault whenever they experience any suffering.
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).
1) There are worldly judges everywhere in this world, but there is only one judge of karma (deeds), the 'fault is of the sufferer'! This is the only justice, on which the whole world is running, and the worldly life continues to stand on the illusory justice.
2) The Secret Knowledge (absolute knowledge) is not in the attention of this world. But everyone is aware of the knowledge of ignorance which causes them to wander life after life. Your pocket got picked then who's fault it is? His pocket did not get picked up & why only your pocket got picked? Which of the two (You or the Pick Pocketer) is suffering now? 'The Fault is of the Sufferer'.
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.
