About the Author

Shriram Sharma Acharya, a pioneer of spiritual renaissance was born on 20th September 1911, in Anwalkheda, Agra District. He scrupulously carried out the biddings of his Guru, a great Himalayan Yogi, when he was fifteen years of age.

A sage, a visionary and a reformer, the Acharya initiated Yug Nirman Yojna, a mass movement for transformation of Era, lived a disciplined life of devout austerity, visited the Himalayas several times and attained spiritual eminence.

He wrote commentary on entire Vedic Vangmaya and accomplished a feat of writing more than 3200 books on all aspects of life.

The Acharya, Great devotee of Gayatri lived an ideal life for 80 years and voluntarily shed his physical sheath on Gayatri Jayanti, 2nd June 1990. .

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.

Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom

I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
