Actions or Intentions ? (A question for all ?)

Yesterday, I read a book referring to the conversation between Ishwar Chand Vidyasagar and Sri Ramakrishna paramhans where Vidyasagar questioned the sage about the existence of the thing called god with a opinion to deny it’s existence. In the same book but the other chapter, Swami Vivekananda (the disciple of Ramkrishna) said that if people get killed while going to holy places, they are killed for a purpose and intention which can only be understood by God. I say that Swami Vivekananda should answer a not-so complex answer which he really did in the book

He said Changez Khan acted sin but his intentions were good like lord Krishna. 

Sometimes we do things with “niyyat” (the purity of intentions) but the actions done for fulfilling these intentions goes wrong. So does that make us a villain or visionary ?

I just wanna know your thoughts about this. Which is more important. Our actions or our intentions behind the actions ? If you say equally then I think you got it wrong because humans does not and never will possess equal everything

  1. Well I am reading My Gita nowadays (by Devdatta patnaik) where I read and learned something that has a reason for this thing you expressed above:
    That whatever you do whether with good or bad intention you can never ever predict the final result of that action. for example you offered a person water intending to help him quench his thirst but the person actually was a criminal and when you went closer to him he stabbed you. So, the end can never be predicted.

    What I think is that our intentions should be right and strong because even if when our actions fail we’ll at least have the satisfaction.
