Query: What is Karma
Theory as per
Karma theory as per Gita is one without a parallel! It is
karma that propels life on mother earth to exist and evolve further! In absence of karma... the whole cosmos
simply could not exist! Why? It is presence of dross impurities within a soul atman that necessitates
existence of karma in cosmic
To cleanse self of dross impurities within... every soul atman manifests karma through a
body... a living being... a life form! Of itself... every soul atman is inert! Only when a soul atman manifests
itself through a body... life comes into existence! In a nutshell, to cleanse self of dross impurities within...
every soul atman needs working out its karma through a chain of bodies!
It is through complex process of karma and evolution life moved
ahead in cosmic life cycle! Indulgence in karma by human beings... by all living beings is an inherent trait of
character... one could not do without! No matter how best we tried... one cannot do away with bindings of karma!
Those who committed suicide to free self of all woes of present life failed to understand crux of karma
As detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism we are primarily a cosmic being... a soul
atman... the spirit within on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations... an earthly life cycle of 96.4
million years! We are not a mortal human being with a soul atman encased within us! We are cosmic consciousness
that needs gaining absolute purity at the earliest!
The manifest human stage is the last in cosmic life cycle! It is only in human form our soul
atman finally liberated self from cycle of birth and death forever... reached 8.4 millionth manifestation... the
last in cosmic life cycle! Travel in human form is the most pleasant experience for every soul atman! In human form
alone we have 1.1 million types of manifestations!
Does it mean every soul atman needs manifesting a maximum of 1.1 million manifestations to work
out its karma... remove dross impurities within... yes, as per sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism the absolute fact
of life is so! For human beings travelling spiritual path is a necessity of our soul atman... not the bodily human
As long as we considered self as a mortal frame... a human body we never reached anywhere on
spiritual path! One needs transcending all bondages of ephemeral life... the manifest physical life for reaching
inner domains of our soul atman... the spirit within! It is only by undertaking spiritual journey human beings
finally unveiled the absolute cosmic truths of life!
The sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is one such scripture... knowing which human beings
finally emancipated forever from cycle of birth and death... reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and
finally salvation (moksha)! In present times need not refer to Hindu revelations... the sacred Vedas!
Karma acts as accountant general of cosmic system... keeping record of minutest action indulged
by all living beings! Every single thought positive or negative precipitates into an act of karma! The doctrine of
thoughts is termed bhava karma in Jainism! We may not indulge physically... still; the doctrine of bhava karma
takes care of every single act of karma performed by us!
For establishing absolute control over karma... one needs indulgence in absolute purity of
thoughts all the time! Those with a sunny disposition and godly thinking always invoked positive thoughts... good
thoughts all the time! For a serious seeker of spirituality invoking positive thoughts... maintaining absolute
purity of thoughts all the time is a dire necessity!
As per the doctrine of karma... whatever the residual balance of karma at the time of death
of physical body... the same becomes the opening balance for next manifestation! If our residual balance of karma
at the time of death of body demands our manifesting a new form in the house of a laborer... one just could not be
born a Prince!
Our whole life is directly governed by laws of karma! No matter what we think or indulged in...
It is the residual balance of karma of that moment that finally decides our future journey of life! As per doctrine
of karma... the destiny of mankind always lay in our hands! Human beings never were born a slave of
Any human being world over can manifest destiny by taking charge of karma as detailed in
sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism! The definition of karma is best given in sacred Bhagavad Geeta of Hinduism... the
foremost of all sacred scriptures existing on mother earth. In the entire history of mankind there is nothing more
sacred than Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in the battle of
