Turning Wheel of Karma on Your side

The law of karma is that powerful that it even takes into account things that are spoken, spiteful things, nice things, rude things, etc. If a person says something hateful towards another, then they will get something similar said back to them at a later date.

It is said that every word we utter is a spiritual strength and that it resonates in the dimensional atmosphere. There is no need to worry about karma, it is an ally as well as an enemy, it is not partial or biased. There is a way to get karma on our side and to get it to work for us, the methodology is simple. Do unto others as you would do unto yourself, treat others as you desire to be treated yourself. If you want to be treated with distain, then act with distain, if you want to be treated with kindness, then act with kindness. Continue reading “Turning Wheel of Karma on Your side”

KARMA – The Yin and Yang of it

The Chinese philosophical symbol of Yin and Yang illustrates the one great Truth of the Universe that all things are held in balance, even this great globe upon which we minutely sit rests in space in a majestic circular state of finely balanced tension. Upset that tension and it will either readjust, or fall apart ! The same applies to such abstracts as good and evil, sound and silence, health and sickness, life and death they are all relative to each other, all depend upon each other, all the finely balanced the one with the other.

The Yin and Yang of Good and Evil

The whole concept of yin yang focuses on duality and how two parts must come together to form a whole, therefore, good and bad must exist in unity in the formation of one’s soul. If you ask there is none who is hundred percent moral, those who have never made any wrongs or mistakes. One simply cannot exist without straddling between good and evil. Continue reading “Yin and Yang – Balance in Daily Life”

Karma III- The creator of your present and future

“Everything that happens to you is outcome of your karma”Buddha

When I read this statement for the first time I did not understand its deep and hidden meaning. I wanted to understand what karma means and how it determine what happens to me. The journey of discovering the meaning of karma over the years made me refine my thoughts and actions.

Karma is an inventory of deeds you collect during your journey of life. Karma means “intentional action” and refers to the universal law of cause and effect. Karma is created not only by physical action, but also by thoughts and words.Just as action causes reaction, karma causes effects that come back to the original actor. Karma also tends to generate more karma that reaches out in all directions. We bear the consequences of the karma we create, but everyone around us is affected by our intentional acts as well, just as we are affected by theirs. Every birth is conditioned by a past good or bad karma, which predominated at the moment of death.

Karma II – Understanding the true meaning of Karma

The journey which started with childhood curiosity of understanding God / Religion / Caste, took me to different milestones in my life. One important milestone was understanding the true meaning of Karma.

What is Karma?

“The Pali term Karma literally means action or doing. Any kind of intentional action, whether mental, verbal, or physical, is regarded as Karma. It covers all that is included in the phrase “thought, word and deed”. Generally speaking, all good and bad action constitutes Karma. In its ultimate sense Karma means all moral and immoral volition. Involuntary, unintentional or unconscious actions, though technically deeds, do not constitute Karma, because volition, the most important factor in determining Karma, is absent.” Continue reading “Karma II – Understanding the true meaning of Karma”

Karma I – Journey to understand Karma

“I have no special talent, I am only passionately curious”Albert Einstein

From childhood I have been very curious by nature. Always questioning beliefs- why my parents worship God? Why,they ask us to seek blessing before the exam? Why we ask God to give us this / that?

After few years of going through same question again and again, but no satisfactory answers, I tried to understand What/Who is God myself. The journey was not easy as it seems, trying to find answers of which no one had a concrete clue. In this journey I Tried to know and understand the reason why people worship. Why they follow any particular religion or belief in certain entity personified as God? Continue reading “Karma I – Journey to understand Karma”

The 12 Laws Of Karma

What is Karma? Karma is the Sanskrit word for action. It is equivalent to Newton’s law of ‘every action must have a reaction’. When we think, speak or act we initiate a force that will react accordingly. This returning force maybe modified, changed or suspended, but most people will not be able eradicate it. This law of cause and effect is not punishment, but is wholly for the sake of education or learning. A person may not escape the consequences of his actions, but he will suffer only if he himself has made the conditions ripe for his suffering. If he were to continue acting in such a way that the retribution cannot come about, because the conditions are not appropriate, then he may postpone the fruition of his karma. If he can suspend it until he is in the spirit world, then he may work at this particular karma in this intermission between death and next life. Or he may wait until another life in which he is more developed so that he can gleaned the educational value of this retribution. Conversely, his life could be so derelict that the blessings due to him cannot fructify until a later date or a subsequent life. All these fall into the category of suspension of karma to a more propitious period or life. Continue reading “The 12 Laws Of Karma”

The Top 10 Inspirational Buddha Quotes

Buddha means “Awakened One”, someone who has awakened and sees things as they really are. Buddha is a person who is completely free from all faults and mental obstructions. Because he has awakened from the sleep of ignorance and has removed all obstructions from his mind, he knows everything of the past, present, and future, directly and simultaneously. Moreover, Buddha has great compassion which is completely impartial, embracing all living beings without discrimination.

Buddhism is like a map….

The teachings of the Buddha that we find in printed books or magazines can serve only as a road map does for an automobile driver. One has to study the map, digest the information therein, and above all, start the engine and go.

One will never reach the destination if one just looks at the map, enjoys its fine printing, but never determines the direction that leads to the destination; or after finding out which direction to go, never lets the car start moving. Buddha is a teacher. He uses His finger to point out the moon to us. But if one just looks at Buddha’s finger, one cannot see the moon. The finger serves simply to point us in the right direction. Once one follows that direction and sees the moon, the finger should be forgotten.!
