Nature of sufferings and sin load reduction –
If one suffers, his load of paapams will reduce.
If one suffers little, little, out of some negligence like not eating on time, in a way he is suffering and in such a scenario, will his load of paapams also gets reduced a bit or not?
So, in essence, question is what kind of sufferings (self-imposed like delayed eating etc, say due to kind of vrakti / sufferings to be experienced due to Karma-Fate) will lead to reduction in paapam load? – in case of vrathams also, some kind of suffering is self imposed, isn’t? hoping it will reduce paapam load.
Shri Kunti Devi prayed for continued sufferings so that She can stay fixated at Shri Lord Krishna. However, this samsara is designed to give sufferings and joyfulness alternatively. Will Bhagawan give continued sufferings, if we pray for it, thinking that one can can finish off paapam load quicker, that way?
(Aspiring Rishis going to forest to live is all self imposed sufferings, in a way! Foregoing luxury-so will their paapam load also gets reduced due to this?)
