Waheguru Ji, Why do I see all the good people suffering and the bad ones enjoying their lives?

Throughout my life, I have seen the good people who are firm believers of god suffering due to other's behaviour. And the shrewd and people with bad intentions get to enjoy their life without feeling guilty. Why does Waheguru ji not punish them for their deeds and why is it that the good ones not get the fruit of their deeds?

You are seeing only a small portion of the whole picture. It is souls that carry karma and bear the burden of it, not people. When you see only short term, you cannot understand it. One cannot exploit or hurt others through word or deed without accumulating more karma. That karma must be paid. When and how is not always visible to us as it crosses lifetimes.

Hi my parents are very religious. My mother is gurusikh. She has a Amrit Paan. I am very religious. I do path everyday. I gave a birth to girl She born premature. And she is 2 years old and didn't start sitting and standing yet. She has a CERBAL PALSY. I feel so depressed. I cry lot. I know my sister in law she never went to gurudwara sahib and she do talk behind you. But she is so happy. Her kids are so happy. Why it's happen to me. I never even think bad about others.

As Guruka Singh Ji mentioned, all the sufferings are because of the bad Karmas of our past lives. All i can say is start doing Simran of Dhan Guru Nanak, the Akal Purakh. In this age of Kaliyug, Simran is the best way to relieve oneself from the bad Karmas.

When I read your post, I thought of the Sakhi about the Gursikh who injured his foot and his friend (who was doing bad deeds) found a gold coin.

You can read the Sakhi on the link below:

As mentioned in the comments above, everything we go through in life is a direct result of our own good or bad karma.

But Guru Maharaj reminds us that our past is not important, what matters most is what we are doing today and where we are heading in the future.

We are so fortunate to have Guru Maharaj's guidance and Bani. Bani is so powerful it literally burns our sins and bad deeds.

Some quotes from Baba Nand Singh Ji Kaleran and Baba Narinder Singh Ji Kaleran on suffering also explain the importance and blessings behind suffering as well as divine love (prema bhakti) below;

Hope this answers your questions, and again remember do not be afraid of pain, even our Guru Sahibs went through a lot of hard times, they set an important example for all of their Sikhs, that no matter what happens, we musn't turn our back on Guru Sahib and continue to love, have faith and be in chardi kala, even during the hard times.

Take care,

Fateh Ji
