What is Your advice for the family of a person who recently died due to COVID-19?

[Shri Anil asked: A person known to me died suddenly due to COVID-19. He was doing a small scale hotel business. He had some financial debts and was not settled properly. Now after his sudden death, his family is staring at huge debt burden beyond their capability. The two children do not have any job. Due to COVID, they are also being isolated in self-quarantine for the time being. Swami, Your advice will be valuable at this difficult juncture for that family.]

Swami replied: You pray to God for their protection. Since your heart is good, there is a hope that the kindest Lord will answer. Kindness alone is the main characteristic of God. All other divine qualities are based on this main quality, called kindness. Even if God punishes the sinner, we must see the kindness as the basis of even the punishment because, through the punishment, the soul will be reformed, at least for the time being. He or she will also be protected by God, as early as possible. Every divine quality ends in the ultimate infinite kindness of God alone, just as every river ends in the mighty ocean. You must also know that every river is finally based on the mighty ocean alone because there cannot be any river without rains and rains occur due to the evaporation of the water from the sea to form clouds.
