Punishments Are Due to Sins Done in Ignorance ... (Excerpt from message of Shri Datta Swami)
Devotee: "You said in the previous message that God has given the best fruit. In such case, there is no need of any change of it in the life time. Please clarify this point".
Shri Swami replied:
The best fruit means the best way of treatment of the soul. The variation of the intensities of the fruit as per the change in the requirement is the very salient feature of the treatment. Best fruit doesn"t mean a lot of gold, which need not be varied. Here, the best fruit means the best way of treatment of disease, which involves variation of the dosage of antibiotic with simultaneous supply of vitamins to reduce the weakness.
The aim of this treatment is destruction of illness and attainment of good health and the procedure involves the usage of both destructive antibiotics and constructive tonics. The right direction given by the correct advices makes the patient to cooperate with the treatment. The condition of health is monitored by the regularly visiting junior doctors, who are under the constant supervision and control of the chief doctor. The place of treatment is the hospital. The treatment always varies as per the positive and negative signs exhibited by the body in practical way. So far, I have described the simile in various aspects. Now, I should apply the concept to simile in every aspect, which correlates the astrology with philosophy.
The antibiotics are the punishments of sins and the vitamin-tonics are the awards of good deeds. Both these are used with variation correlating the condition of disease, which is ignorance. When the punishments are applied, the soul suffers with weakness or depression. In such case, the awards of good deeds are given, which act as tonics giving some strength. The aim is reformation of the soul by which it is relieved from all the further punishments given by sins done due to ignorance. The divine knowledge given to this soul under treatment gives the right direction and proper understanding to the soul by which it cooperates with the treatment. The regular monitoring of the treatment of the soul is done by the nine planets, which are under constant supervision and control of the God. The place of this treatment is only this world, called as karma loka.
The upper worlds (bhoga loka) are not the place of treatment. This treatment administering the good and bad fruits varies in accordance to the practical signs of change in the soul reflecting the total and complete transformation of the soul, which is the ultimate goal like perfect health. The constant variation of the signs reflecting the variable qualities in the practical behavior of the soul becomes the basis of the administration of punishments and awards with variable intensities. This point is indicated by the constantly rotating cycle of very minute periods of the nine planets (like Mahadasha, Antardasha, Vidasha, Pranadasha etc.) in even a minute. We can understand this from the fact that our mind gets a very good thought in a fraction of minute and in the other fraction, the worst thought appears. Therefore, the way of the treatment changing in accordance to the intensity of the illness itself is the best fruit, which is not an entity like a fixed package of wealth.
