How should one handle things like black magic etc.?

[Ms. Suganya Raman asked: Padanamaskarm Dear Swamiji. You say miracles are just jewels of God and not an identity of God, which can even be given away to demons by God. So, what are the demonic actions in this era?  Does black magic, evil eye etc come under that?

I was in a notion that how could a jealousy of an ordinary human be so powerful to cause some real damage to the people on whom he/she casts his/her evil eye?  My understanding is that Evil eye and Black magic are theoretical and practical jealousy of a person respectively and the one who is a victim of this is just getting some punishments as a fruit delivered for his/her own deeds done earlier.

If black magic is the bad faces of the miracles (unimaginable powers) which are used by demonic persons, how can an ordinary human withstand it? So are they again some means to deliver punishments to a soul for its previously done deed meanwhile developing worship towards God?

Using this fear of the public, there are so many exploitations and different notions and fears induced continuously. How should one react/handle such things? Please correct my understanding and help me Swamiji. At Your Divine Lotus feet, Your servant, Suganya Raman.]

Swami Replied:- You are correct in concluding that the bad angles through which unimaginable powers are used by demons and devilish people are only becoming effective due to the past bad deeds of the souls. We need not blame such performers of black magic unnecessarily since it is the divine plan of God for punishing the sinners so that they will be proned to reformation. The thought of harming a person raises in the mind of the black magician only due to the unimaginable power of God in the case of punishing the sin of such person. It is not the misuse of the powers in the hands of demons. However, if it is a fresh case (which means that it is not a retorting case where the harmed person in the present birth harmed the other person in the previous birth), God will certainly prevent it and will punish the demon severely. When an incident happens, we don’t have the capacity to recognise it as a fresh case or a retorting case. If it is a retorting case, there will be no punishment for the sin of the devilish person because in the previous birth, the devilish person was the victim of the present harmed person. Seeing this, people misunderstand that there is no right administration of God and hence, the root reason is that God Himself does not exist. Hence, God Krishna told that the analysis of an action is very very deep and complicated (Gahanā karmaṇo gatiḥ - Gītā). Whatever may be the case, the suffering will certainly indicate the previous bad action only (Avaśyam anubhoktavyam).
