|Query: Structure of Soul...
The soul atman of a human being is pure cosmic energy. It is
indestructible... it can neither be created nor destroyed. It simply manifests a body depending upon the
residual balance of karma. In itself soul does not carry anything. It is the doctrine of karma that is
governing. From one manifestation to another... the residual balance of karma moves
The balance sheet of life moves in a manner similar to the balance sheet
prepared by a chartered accountant. Whatever is the closing balance... becomes the opening balance of the
next year. Whatever be the residual balance of karma of the present manifestation... our soul atman gets the
next manifestation accordingly. If the balance of karma demands that one be born in the house of a laborer...
it just cannot be that one takes birth in the house of a king.
Everything in encoded form gets transferred to the next manifestation
through the complex structure of chromosomes and DNA.
The complex theory of karma has some pitfalls. Even though the residual
balance of karma transfers to the next manifestation... some types of sins and virtues do not fructify
immediately. This result in one winning a lottery in one of next manifestations provided one has a balance of
virtues in-store. A negative balance may result in certain doom in one of the next manifestations. It is this
doom or being lucky that disturbs many.
