Swami Arupananda:





Udbodhan, 7 July, 1912:





"Mother, can the results of karma be wiped away?" I inquired. "The scriptures declare that these become infructuous when knowledge dawns. And yet one has to suffer the results of karma that have started working themselves out in the present body."





"All happiness and misery are the result of karma," said Mother. "Even the Master had to suffer such results. His elder brother was drinking water when in a delirium; but the Master snatched away the glass  when he had drunk a little. This irritated the brother and he said, 'You did not allow me to drink; you too will have to suffer like this; you too will have a pain in the throat.' 'Brother', pleaded the Master, 'I have done no harm to you. You are ill, and too much water will aggravate the ailment. That's why I did so. Why then do you curse me?' 'I don't know, my brother, why these words slipped out of my mouth', said the elder with tears in his eyes. 'Now these can never be false.'





"When the Master fell ill, he told me, 'It's his curse that has created this sore in my throat. In any case this will save you all from much suffering, which I have courted thus.' 'If such be your lot,' I argued, 'how can ordinary people carry on in life?' "He was a saintly man;' the Master explained, 'so his words were all true. Not that all people's words are so effective."
