You may experience either happiness or distress. You may know fame or infamy. The lowest persons may insult you, or the saintly devotees praise you. You may know poverty or great wealth. You may obtain all valuable things, or you may not obtain anything. Whatever position your past pious or impious deeds may place you in, just make Vrindavana your life and soul.
(Vrindavana Mahimamrita 1.30.)
There are no heroes nor victims in this world. Everything is a result from previous actions. This is called the “laws of karma”.
This is a part of the upcoming Live Book “Vrindavana Encyclopedia”.
