Is the ability to remember past lives the mercy of the Lord?
From Nimai Dasa:
If remembering out past lives can create the mental problem in this life like you said ,we may had came under truck ,or chopped off in our previous lives ,why then bhagavatam ( 5.9.3) describes that remembering our past lives to be the mercy of supreme lord .it says
” bhagavad-anugrahenanusmrta-sva-purva-janmavalir ”
which says ” Due to his being especially gifted with the Lord’s mercy, Bharata Maharaja could remember the incidents of his past life “ .
how maharaja bharata benefited from it ,why bhagavatam considers that to be mercy of supreme lord ? if it is mercy ,then why can’t that apply to us too ?
