Jayapataka Swami:  Yes! If we have to suffer our karma, why is that not also a purification for us to progress in devotional service? If we think that actually the full effect of our karma would be much greater, Krsna gives us a little token. And in that way, we can think that this material world is not a place we want to stay in. And we can render devotional service. So, we do lots of things wrong and certainly we could suffer some karmas for that. At the same time, Krsna reduces the effect and gives us a little bit of taste so that we can have the proper consciousness. If everything is blissful, we will think that material world is alright! I will stay here! And if there is too much suffering then we would be distracted. And we couldn’t focus on devotional service. So a little balance is good for us.
