Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

May 6, 2011 |

Question: My question is why do bad things happen with good people or innocent people?… Expand>

Question:

My question is why do bad things happen with good people or innocent people?

Answer by HH Bhakti Vikāśa Swami:

An often asked question. The problem of evil. If God is good, then why do bad things happen to good people?

Well, the answer is that no one is good in this material world. The so-called good person who is suffering, is suffering because of reactions to sinful activities performed in previous lives.

Maybe someone who is bad is getting good luck — lots of money, but that means they did some pious activities in previous lives. Now they’ve got opportunity they are taking advantage and exploiting others. That cycle goes on. The good people are good as a result of their pious activities, they get the opportunity to enjoy this world, and they exploit others and then get sinful reactions, and it goes on like this.

There is an article about this called ’’Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People“ by Ravīndra-svarūpa Prabhu. It was featured in Back to Godhead magazine many years ago. That is accessible from The Bhaktivedanta Vedabase. If you don’t have access to that, you can ask someone. It examines this in detail.

http://www.krishna.com/do-bad-things-happen-good-people

But in the modern age someone may be polite and well behaved, but people are eating meat and watching TV — which is all sinful.

Who is good? What is the meaning of good? We think someone is good because they stroke their pet dog, they look after their pet dog very nicely. Good means to surrender to Kṛṣṇa.

Question:

All that has happened in the world during the financial crisis has made me feel a kind of hopelessness that I have never experienced before. I talk to many people during the day, and so many seem to feel lost as I do, because of the recent (3 years) kaos of seemingly collapsing economies around the world.

I have always had some kind of hopefulness depite all that the world churns out. But this time, its as if all the goodnesss that people have tried to do has been stamped on and negated by the tremendous greed and lawlessness of the various ruling elites including governments and corporations and political so called leaders.

I feel I have been aimless since this series of "events." and its hard to make sense of how to live in the world. I am not prone to depression and I have had a lot of "success" in life, but somehow, its hard to ignore what is happening in the world today–it feels a lot more kaotic than in the past. I feel that
somehow I need to be involved in organizing a response to what is happening and help to be part of making it better. What can I do to get grounded again and help somehow?
