In 2016 one of the
held in the divine presence at Japan. A devotee asked about reincarnation and the laws of Karma.
And here is what Swami said:
You can teach only those who are ready to receive. If they are not ready, whatever you teach will fall on deaf ears. However, those who believe in heaven must also believe in hell, is it not? So you can always tell them that, if they do good, they will definitely go to heaven, but how can they be so sure about it? What if they have done wrong and because of that, they end up in hell? Therefore, it’s always better to do good, good, good. Then, reincarnation or whatever happens, you will always be happy – it does not matter. Whether you teach about reincarnation or heaven and hell, it does not matter. What matters is that you teach them that one needs to be on the path of goodness, the path of morality. That is more than enough.
