Preface

The law of divine justice follows a mysterious course. In the world we come across many instances of virtuous persons undergoing endless suffering and pain; sinners perpetually enjoying pleasurable lives; indolents achieving success; hard- working persons meeting repeated failures; the wise suffering adversity; fools living in prosperity; egoists held in high esteem; and the righteous held in contempt. We find some persons born with silver spoon in their mouths and others facing one misfortune after another throughout life. The well-known human norms for achieving happiness and success do not always appear to hold good in practical terms. Such phenomena raise many questions and doubts about the role of fate in life, the will of God and the relationship of virtuous and evil deeds with happiness and unhappiness in life. The rationale given in the ancient literature in this respect does not adequately satisfy the inquisitiveness of modern minds. Consequently, the new generation is becoming more inclined to accept the atheistic ideologies of the West, which regard God and the religion as phantoms creations of sick and fearful minds; the human body merely a chemical combination of inert elements; and denies the very existence of an immortal soul. The new generation is made to believe that there is no Supreme Being or God; that destiny has no role to play in life; and that only arbitrary man-made state machinery has the powers to dispense punishments and rewards.

In the present book an attempt has been made to give rational and logical explanations of relationship between human deeds and destiny. It explains how events of good fortune and misfortune, happiness and suffering in human life are results of one's own deeds. It is hoped that this booklet will provide satisfactory answers to the queries relating to the role played by the consequences of an individual's deeds in the making of his destiny.
