Srimate Ramanujaye Namaha!
Namaskaraam swami. It was a pleasure to hearing the interesting topic in today’s enpani, where the so called inconsistencies between horoscope, past karma and God’s grace and our efforts was explained in a such a way that there is no contradiction in all the four.
I fully accept and agree the explanation. But would like to add some observations which i have seen which may be true or may be not.. But would like swami to confirm if this understanding is correct.
When one is not devoted and not taking steps/effort as per sastra then things happen as per one’s past karma as indicated in horoscope and it is a straight forward case.
But in case of one having bad karma/horoscope, and one tries to rectify himself as per saastras and becomes devoted to God, it appears that the malefic effects are not nullified but reduced to a bearable amount, but rather Lord engages the soul in other spiritual engagements and gives him the mental stability, patience and tolerance to pull through the events..so it appears the change is in spiritual realm and not in material realm.
Is this understanding correct?
