The Hindus and the Belief in God

BBC Thoughts for the Day, 4 January 2005

When Hindus weigh up the issues of freewill, karma and the omnipotence of God to make sense of their own particular circumstances, they are guided never to make a judgment of others. In the face of natural disaster, therefore, they may be less likely to condemn God because they tend to see that the world has been created so that we can serve it, rather than for us to be served by it. Although horrific and unwelcome in the extreme, catastrophes in the material world, nonetheless, do inspire selfless service.
