Is it justified to give boons to demons who spoil society?

[Ms. Thrylokya asked: While answering the question of Smt. Jhansi, You told that the demons after getting the boons spoil their lives and then realize the truth. But, they spoil the lives of society also. How is this justified?]

Swami replied: The demons cannot spoil the lives of strongly reformed devotees. Only weak devotees get spoiled. In this way, the action of demons can be taken as the test to distinguish strong and weak devotees. Without knowing this basic truth, demons help God in conducting such tests. Every good or bad angle that results is used by God for some administration purpose. I already told that the test conducted by God uses some past bad action of the soul and hence, some bad actions available in the deed-cycle of any soul can be used for the test. If a strong devotee having no bad action in his deed-cycle exists for whom the test need not be conducted by God, he will always remain unaffected by the grace of God.
