When the environment comes to attack us

Divine Words of His Divine grace Srila Bhakti Rakshaka Sridhar Dev Goswami

Devotee: When the environment comes to attack us, how can we see that as Krsna?

Srila Guru Maharaj: When the environment is unfavorable?

Devotee: Yes.

Srila Guru Maharaj: We shall try to find out the Supreme Will there. We should feel, “I have done something wrong, so this is coming to control me and to exact the reaction for my offenses. Tat te ‘nukampam susamiksamano. In the perfect vision, we are not to quarrel with the environment. “Not even a straw can move without the Supreme Will, without the order of the Supreme Will. So, whatever is coming to attack me is my necessity. Just that is necessary for me, to correct me.” Just as when the mother is punishing the child, she does so only with the good will to correct the child. Similarly, the Absolute has got no vindictive nature to punish me, but His dealings are only for my correction. We shall have to see and approach in that way.

Tat te ‘nukampam susmiksamano bhunjana evatma-krtam vipakam:

“Whatever undesirable I find here is the result of my previous karma, and by the good will of the Supreme, that previous karma is going to be
finished. I will be relieved. I will be made fit for higher; service to Him, so this has come.” That is the advice in Bhagavatam. Don’t quarrel with the environment.

Try to be adjusted with it; correct your own ego.
