(Excerpt from message of Shri Datta Swami)
The topic of deeds and the corresponding fruits is a very complicated cycle involving the three dimensional network of various aspects as said in the Gita (Gahanaa karmano Gatih). You cannot simply give a passing remark based on superficial observation of very limited area of this topic. First, you must understand that God is the most kind and the most generous Father of all the living beings in this world. His concentration is always to uplift every soul either by hook or crook. The procedures may be pleasant or pungent, but the ultimate goal is only one, which is the protection and the development of the soul from one birth to the other birth. The ignorant child may not understand this ultimate goal of God and may put various questions regarding the rationality and justice. The ignorance or little knowledge of the soul results in several confusions regarding the programme of God.
1) The proof for the re-birth is very clear if you observe various reported incidents of re-birth in various countries across the world. A new department called the department of para-psychology is opened in this line to study these incidents with impartial outlook. Hence, you need not ask for the proof of re-birth and mock the scripture, which says about it. The Gita says that the birth is for death and death is for re-birth (Jaatasyahi...).
2) The hell exists in the space far above our earth, which can be seen only by the grace of God. The reason is that the souls embedded in the energetic bodies reaching hell for punishments and the divine administration staff including the entire hell is made of energy, which has frequency far above the reachable frequency of the electro magnetic spectrum. The concept of hell will give some control on the sin, which is very much advantageous to anybody. If the faith on the existence of the hell shades away, your future will be very serious and I assuredly tell all of you about this point.
You may argue that I cannot take you into the space and show the existence of the hell to you. But, at the same time you cannot also take Me into this infinite space up to its boundary and show Me the non-existence of the hell. In such case, the hell may exist or may not exist. Both the options have equal probability. In such case, a wise person will select the probability of lesser risk, which is to believe the existence of hell. If you are careful in not doing the sins, based on your faith in the existence of hell, nothing is lost even if the hell is absent. If you take other option to disbelieve the existence of hell and go on doing the sins, you are lost if the hell exists. Therefore, the first option is always far better than the second one. You need not believe that much only what ever is seen by you. Inference is also an authority of the knowledge in which you believe in the existence of something, which is not seen by you. The miracles exhibited by the devotees in this world prove the existence of unimaginable areas.
The Veda says that the past memory of the hell or previous birth is nipped off with the nails of God (Paraanchi Khaani...). This means that the memory in us is lost by the will of God only. The reason is that if the memory of the hell remains, the individual will be just shivering with fear and will be unable to do any thing or even to read the scripture. This is not desirable to God, who likes the soul to start a fresh life forgetting all the past and achieve not only the worldly goals but also spiritual goals. Similarly, if the memory of the previous births exists in the mind of the human being, such a human being will be utterly confused due to millions of family bonds that appear whenever it goes out of the house. In such a confusion, the human being will become mad and the same situation of inactivity results. Hence, everything, set- up by God has its own meaning and do not criticize God in hasty manner.
A passenger suffering with heat in summer came under a huge Neem tree to rest for some time. He thought that God is foolish because the huge tree is having tiny fruits where as the tender pumpkin creeper is loaded with very big fruits. Thinking like this, he slept for some time. He awoke after some time and found the tiny fruits, which have fallen on him from the tree. Then he realized his mistake thinking that he was foolish where as God is very wise. If the huge tree has proportionally huge fruits, his head should have been broken by the fruits, which are fallen on him! Therefore, patience must be the first quality of the spiritual knowledge as said by Shankara (Shamadamaadi...).
