The Im­por­tance Of Prayer While Suf­fer­ing Karma

India Business Journal - - KNOWLEDGE ZONE -

Ques­tioner: Dada, what I want to know is if the ef­fect of karma can be changed through prayer?

Dadashri: The ef­fect of karma is com­posed of parts. One as­pect is such that it can be elim­i­nated with prayer. A sec­ond type can be elim­i­nated with a lit­tle spir­i­tual ef­fort. The third type is the one that no mat­ter how strong the spir­i­tual ef­fort, there is no es­cape from the suf­fer­ing. It is too sticky.

Ques­tioner: But even if the kar­mas are very sticky, doesn't prayer make a dif­fer­ence?

Dadashri: It makes no dif­fer­ence. Al­though at the time of pray­ing, there may be some peace.

Ques­tioner: Does one get the strength to ex­pe­ri­ence the fruits of the kar­mas by pray­ing?

Dadashri: No. The mis­ery is the ef­fect on you. With prayer, you can ex­pe­ri­ence a por­tion of hap­pi­ness in mis­ery. But it is dif­fi­cult for the prayer to re­main con­tin­u­ously. When sit­u­a­tions are bad, and the mind is spoiled, it is hard to keep pray­ing. If it is pos­si­ble to keep pray­ing, it would be the ideal thing, and one should do it by re­call­ing and re­mem­ber­ing 'Dada', who him­self is free from his body. If you re­call the one who is not at­tached to his body and then say the prayers, the prayer will stay, oth­er­wise it will not.
