  5. Gurudev, recently I was recording your conversation in which you had spoken about reincarnation and rebirth and the sanskaars of previous births. One thing that intrigues me is it seems that the laws of the world are different to the Divine laws. Those things that are valued here apparently do not find favour with God. Gaandhaari had asked Lord Krishna what her sin was that she lost all one hundred sons in the battle. Lord Krishna asked Gaandhaari to revisit her previous lifetimes. In regressing into her past lifetimes, she discovered that 108 lifetimes ago she had killed 108….., and now 108 lifetimes later she was reaping the consequences of her actions through the loss of her 100 sons. Worldly laws state that justice delayed is justice denied. So, how come the rules are different in God's kingdom versus the world? Secondly, we are preached to practice kindness and compassion towards one and all, whereas when a major calamity befalls someone, it is explained away as the inevitable result of praarabdha karma. If there is no compassion in God's kingdom, why are we expected to practice compassion and forgiveness while others are committing sins/crimes? Why this disparity between divine and worldly dispensation?
