In the Bhagavad Gita, the Lord has given the assurance, "I shall bear the burden of your welfare, here and hereafter" (yoga kshemam vahaamyaham). He has undertaken this task voluntarily. But mortals have to live as ordained, adhering to the lines laid down. When they complain that they are not helped by God in bearing their burdens, they have only to examine their lives and discover how far they have kept the commands of God regarding the regulation of their lives. They do not examine their past nor plan for the future; they lament on the grief of the moment. They do not realise that the grief is due to neglect; in the past and that it is a warning and a lesson for the future.
