(Excerpt from message of Shri Datta Swami)
The deity of justice is very very near and dear to God (Dharmasya prabhuracyutaḥ). If any soul tries to harm justice, God becomes very very furious (Vinaśāyaca duṣkṛtām). If a soul tries to support justice, God becomes very very happy. God is always active in the protection of justice and the destruction of injustice. If a soul tries to assist God in this work, the soul is fully blessed by God with His eternal grace.
The sole aim of the entire spiritual knowledge and the entire human life is only to please God and get His grace by the end of one’s human life. Hence, if the soul sincerely tries to oppose injustice and support justice in day to day life, that is the best practical implementation of spirituality in life. This is practical spiritual life. It is pravṛtti divinised by nivṛtti and it greatly pleases God.
Although pleasing God by supporting justice is an indirect means of pleasing God, it is very very important. However much one may try to please God directly through devotion, if one goes against justice in day to day life, it is of no use because God always gets furious with such a soul. Rāvaṇa was the greatest devotee of God and he even cut off his many heads and offered them to God, as if they were red lotus flowers. But in practical life, he was constantly doing injustice and harming justice.
Even his unimaginable devotion could not save him from the divine punishment given to him for his sins. If the soul follows justice in practical life and also becomes a direct devotee of God, God is pleased with the soul indirectly as well as directly. Justice in pravṛtti (worldly life) and devotion in nivṛtti (spiritual life) are the two feet of God. If you worship one foot with flowers and pierce the other foot with thorns, the final result is only pain since both will not neutralise each other.
