Do you know that all the black money transactions in this world happens on Faith? One person transacts such money & gives such money to the other person just on Good Faith without any legal documentation. Just see how this "Satta Bazaar" (Illegal Betting market) works. In India during Cricket matches & Elections this "Satta Bazaar" becomes very active & people put huge bets on the outcome of such events. Now just see how the money transaction takes place in such illegal bets. As no legal documented receipts can be given or taken in such a transaction so all such illegal business takes place on FAITH. One person gives the bet money to such an operator & if the outcome of the event happens in that person's favor then Satta operator gives the multiplied money to the winner as per the agreement. But all this transaction happens just on FAITH.

Similar one is the "Havala" market in which black money is transferred from one party to the other one (mostly in the other country) just on Good Faith & no documented legal transaction takes place. In such a case, a person gives money to the operator just on Faith to be given abroad & the operator sends the money abroad in turn. Interestingly all such illegal business happens on Faith in such a perfection that all the transactions are honored honestly & no defaults are there. Satta Bazaar too operates in all honesty that all such transactions on Faith are honored very immaculately as otherwise next time no one shall come to the operator & whole such business shall stop. In normal business also all black money transactions happen only such way, just on Good Faith.

Now just see that we humans can put Faith on all such types of people (of good & bad character) in business or people who deal in all such illegal transactions like Satta & Havala. But if a saint tells you that God is just sitting in your heart, you may not have that complete Faith in his words. If a saint tells you that God is almighty & is present everywhere in this world & even all around you, then you may not have that complete Faith in his words. If scriptures tell you that God has created all this world then you may not have that complete Faith in it. How is it that people can put Faith in people of such repute who does illegal business but not in the words of a saint?

Faith is the one which makes our perceptions & beliefs. If you have Faith in & believe in religious scriptures, words of a saint, then you shall be able to turn toward the God. It's Faith only which determines how you can mould your life. It shall be Good if you have Faith in the words of a saint or in religious books than you have Faith in people who indulge in gambling, betting etc. Choice is yours!!!!!

Below are few verses of Bhagwat Gita on Faith:
