We were reading Bhagavad-gita and Bhagavatam to a pregnant woman mother. Just two weeks before her delivery she lost her baby because of strangling of cord. People expect blessings for the baby and read. How to understand such unfortunate incidents?

Guru maharaj: A child hears from the seventh month onwards. So maybe the child by hearing the Bhagavad-gita was already liberated! So why take birth? So much maya after you are born! Maybe the child was allowed to go back to Godhead right away. The child had prasadam in the mother’s stomach and heard Bhagavad-gita. Maybe that this child just went back to Godhead.
