Query: Karma... There
may be nothing else for you to learn further but I am far from that stage. So if you could throw a little bit
of light on my life situation, my past, karma, my personal obstacles etc, I would be very obliged. I
understand everyone needs to work out their karma but knowing where I stand presently first would be of great
I have made things quite clear... still you do not want to understand! I
have reached the level of self realization for I did not fall in the traps of various siddhies offered by God
on the spiritual path. Had I succumbed, I may have accumulated billions of dollars on the spiritual path...
but never reached God Almighty!
Whatever you ask... regarding your life situation, your karma, your
past... is best known to you! As you perform... so is your destiny! Having born (not of our own)... we very
well know there is no escape! Who can know better about a person than the incumbent self! None can know you
better than you yourself!
As long as we keep brooding over the past... we lose not only the present
but also the future! If we want to manifest our destiny... take charge of our destiny... we must put a full
stop to looking back into the past! However best we try... none can travel back to the past! Whatever
happened in the past has passed... why brood and spoil the present!
Still, if you desire peeping into your past... you need to consult either
an astrologer, a palmist... in a nutshell... a religious master and not a spiritual guru! Spirituality has
nothing to do with the past lives... the karma of an individual! Having realized self I can only define the
meaning of karma... past lives... how one can live life at its best!
One of my articles is read by thousands and thousands of people! As many
readings... as many meanings people derive! It is only when the queries within one dissolve forever... one
steps higher on the spiritual platform. Indulgence in religious matters helps live the physical manifest life
but spirituality leads us to the cosmic goal of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... when one gains
enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)!
The truth about every human being is best known to the individual self. How? By hearing the sweet small inner voice
of our soul atman... we can not only know about our real self... we shall know everything about the cosmic system!
The only condition being... we need traveling the path of absolute truthfulness to hear the sweet small inner voice
of our soul atman... coming from within our heart!
If you truly desire knowing your real self... travel the path of absolute
truthfulness! The voice of your soul atman would become your guide in life! If so-and-so pundit tells me
about my past life... do I believe it! Thousands... rather millions spoil their life by indulgence in matters
that can never be changed... our past life!
In whatever stage of life we may be... suppose I am based at karma index
of 46... My all efforts should be to reach the karma level of 47! None in the world knows at what karma index
we exist... yet, by indulgence in Punya karma (positive karma) all the time... one can definitely improve the
present and the future!
Human being... the highest manifest stage in the cosmic life cycle need not seek advice of astrologers, palmists
and religious masters! We must not get guided by whatever they say! It is the power of discrimination that
distinguishes us from animals which must be exercised at all times. Relying on purely hearsay... might lead towards
I had in my life at times shown my hand to palmists! It was not that I
went to the palmist. It so happened that the Jain monks who used to come to our house for collecting food...
amongst them was an expert palmist! When I showed my hand... whatever he said... was found to be absolute
truth! I was already traveling the path!
Based on the palmists reading... I never changed my decisions in life!
Neither the statements of the palmist had any bearing on my life! I always felt happy on one point... the art
of palmistry... astrology... do indicate the truth of life! I can only say... wow!
I would again advise... whatever the circumstances in life... indulgence in positive karma would always bear fruit
in the coming future! Why not indulge in positive karma all the time.
