What is Karma


Karma is not related to any religion, dogma or creed nor is it limited to an individual. In the cosmic system every single living being is governed by the doctrine of karma... as we sow so shall we reap nothing less or more! We cannot expect mangoes to grow on a guava tree. As is our karma in present life... accordingly shapes our future... the next life!

Broadly the workings of karma are similar to that of an accountant. The closing balance of this life becomes the opening balance of next manifestation. After the death of the body based on the residual balance of karma of present life... the next manifestation is taken by our soul atman! If our soul atman was to don garb of a cobbler's son... it simply cannot manifest the form of a Prince!

Christians predominantly believe in karma but not in a manner Hindus do. The workings of law of karma are best detailed in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the foremost of all sacred scriptures existing on Mother Earth. Hindus firmly believe in the law of karma. Whatever we do unto others... the same would bounce back unto us at some stage of life.

One important thing about karma is... the entire karma does not precipitate at any given moment of time. A portion of it termed Prarabdha karma in Hinduism can fructify any given moment of time. The intelligent human beings are... to stop manipulating the doctrine of karma... God Almighty framed the system of karma accordingly.

In daily routine we find many people even though indulging in good karma all their life suffer. If the negative residual balance of Prarabdha karma from the previous manifestations exists in our favor we are bound to suffer at the hands of fate. To get out of the clutches of negative karma of past lives... it is best we indulge in positive karma, good karma, Punya karma all the time!

That is how we negate the bad effects of negative residual balance of Prarabdha karma from previous manifestations. There is no other alternative. Our soul atman is the absolute master and controller of the body... it is our soul atman that has manifested the human form to work out its karma... cleanse itself of the dross impurities within!

Our soul atman being the controller of life in the cosmic system... human beings are bound by the laws of karma always and ever! Whether we are Christians or Hindus does not matter... what matters is for every act of karma, the individual concerned is responsible and not God Almighty as some people think! For how long shall we continue blaming God Almighty for our woes!
