Many grieve: “It is said that having the vision of a holy person (darshanam) destroys our sin (papanasam). Well, I have had darshan not once but many times, and yet, my evil fate has not left me and I am suffering even more than before.” True, you may have come and had not one, but several darshans, and you may have sowed fresh seeds secured from the Divine — seeds of love, faith, devotion, good company, Godly thoughts, remembering God’s name, etc. So you have learnt the art of intensive cultivation and soil preparation. You have just now sown the seeds in well-prepared fields of cleansed hearts. The troubles and anxieties you experience presently are the crop collected from your previous harvests, so do not grieve and lose heart. Everyone must consume the grain they’ve already stored from their previous harvests. Bear with it patiently, until the new harvest comes in!
