In this week’s INNER VIEW, Brother Madhusudan Naidu shares an interesting moment between the Lord and his devotees at a satsang in Ottawa.

It was during the Questions and Answers session at a Satsang in Ottawa that followed the discourse, a devotee asked Swami, “Earlier when You were in the Physical Body, You used to take upon Yourself the Karma of the other devotees, for their sake. But now when You are not in the body, what do You do when devotees pray for relief from their Karmic problems?”

Swami said, “No one can escape the consequences of their Karmas, for this is the Law of the Universe that reigns supreme. Therefore, if not the devotee, then I had to experience the consequence by transferring it to upon Myself, just like a mother who feels so much for her sick child, that she prays, ‘Let my child be healthy and I may be sick instead’. But now, when there is no body which is bound by the space, time and causation in this physical world, I cannot take it upon Myself. So, I have to either let the devotee go through it or I can transfer it to another birth of the devotee. However, if someone prays selflessly for others, then I can destroy that Karma, just like seeds that get destroyed in the fire, and lose their potency to germinate. Therefore, God is called ‘Karma Dhwamsine Namaha – Salutations to the destroyer of Karma’.  So I always tell everyone to pray for all, ‘Samastha Loka Sukhino Bhavantu – May all beings in all the worlds be happy’. 

When you pray for all thus, since you are also a part of that ‘universal all’, you are saved too!”
