Nayaswami Hriman

Question from Diana: I wanted to ask about curses (or black magic of any kind). Do curses interfere with one’s karma and the way the that person’s life should have naturally progressed, or are curses actually a part of one’s karma (meaning, if one has been a victim of a curse, can we assume that it was “meant” to happen because of their…

For example, in general dancing, going out too much or participating in social gatherings isn’t an attraction and there would be resistance for me to do that. Just the fact that I have resistance to it means it’s an attachment? Or would it mean that desire for…
