  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    When you're surrounded by deepest darkness, it's hard to even think about a ray of Sunshine. Likewise it's difficult to think of justice, when you see the triumph of evil and deceit, and the defeat of truth and honesty all around us. Nonetheless, just as the first ray of Sun penetrates the dark and illuminates our world, the justice of Supreme Power prevails to uproot and smash the evil. The promise is that you will always get double of what was taken away from you; see e.g. the following lines from Holy Book: "Because you got a double dose of trouble and more than your share of contempt, your inheritance in the land will be doubled and your joy go on forever." The justice from Supreme Power shall thus prevail - always! Never lose the Hope and keep your Faith strong!
