Can charity save you from suffering?

Q. I have always been a pious man, given in charity and donated to the temple. Then why am I made to suffer?

A. Our present suffering is due to past sinful reactions from this or previous lives. Ultimately, our suffering will continue as long as we continue in this cycle of repeated birth and death. Therefore, it is very important for each of us in addition to performing our charity work and donating to the temple, to carefully cultivate our dormant spirit of unalloyed devotion for Krishna. The most effective means for this is to daily and regularly chant the Holy Name of the Lord. When we attain the stage of chanting without offenses, we will no longer experience any suffering in this world because we will be mercifully transferred to the abode of Lord Krishna!
