Why do bad things happen to good people?

Hare Krsna.

I have been continously trying to understand on the 'why' of 'Why do bad things happen to good people?

Sincerely awaiting to understand the mystery.

With Love, Haribol.

This is the basic thing

This is the basic thing explained in Bhagavadgita and our other books. In short, karma continues as long as our material conditioning lasts and sometimes it's not spend in one lifetime but over several lifetimes.
In cases of advanced devotees the 'bad thing' is actually Krsna's arrangement to make the devotee more surrendered to Him.
