  2. Gurudev, I have been very regular with my sadhana, seva and satsang for many years now. Despite this, I have been going through financial difficulties for the past three years and am very disturbed. Please advise.

If that is so, then we should not be made responsible for our good and bad actions. I have been confused about all this for a very long time. Please help me understand this.
