Adhidaivika

 

Suffering caused by supernatural forces is called Adhidaivika.

Tapatraya - Three types of suffering

  1. Adhyatmika - self-caused such as cancer due to smoking.
  2. Adhibhautika - caused by other beings, both living and non-living such as getting bitten by a dog.
  3. Adhidaivika - caused by supernatural forces.

Types of Adhidaivika suffering

  • Affecting masses
  • Affecting individuals

When a whole community or society becomes unrighteous, it becomes the target of divine wrath.

The divine punishment comes in the form of floods, droughts, epidemics, famine, etc.

At an individual level, suffering can occur due to one’s own past bad deeds, even from earlier births.

Adhidaivika suffering can also be due to curses or black magic.
