There are different ways of looking at illness.

  • One person will look at an illness as a punishment from above;
  • another person looks at it as a punishment brought about by his own misdeeds;
  • there is another way of looking at illness, and that is that it comes from the past karmas, that one has to pay back by illness the karmas, the actions of the past. I have seen patients go through their illness in the thought that as it is the debt of the past that one has to pay, it is just as well that it should be paid back.
