We should be afraid of sin, and not difficulties. We have to develop Daiva preeti, papa bheeti and Sangha neeti (fear of sin, love of God and morality in society). Instead of developing fear of sin, we are enslaved by sin. Instead of seeking refuge in God, we are submitting ourselves to difficulties. Morality in society will lead to love of God which will in turn lead to fear of sin. Hence, we should uphold morality in society and dedicate ourselves to God. Saint Thyagaraja once prayed, “Oh Lord, I am deeply concerned about the fear of sin. I am unable to surrender to Your love. Please grant me the strength of conviction to bow down before Your divine love and bless me with strength to overcome difficulties”. Every true devotee of God must abstain from sinful acts and overcome sorrows and difficulties. Strive to attain the treasure of pure devotion!
