Karma philosophy in Hinduism

I was reading some article about Hindu philosophy on karma cycle. There were so many questions that came in my mind, hence I'm sharing here what I gathered. Of course I believe in births and rebirths. I have examples before me in my own family. So I, by no chance can question the fact. So I do believe in karma.

Karma means an act or a deed. Hindu philosophy of karma clearly speaks what we sow is what we reap. We will get benefited from our good karma and will have to pay for our bad karma. Karma can be performed through actions, thoughts or speech.

Karma in Hindu philosophy are classified in three forms viz. Sanchita Karma, Prarabdha and kriyamana or Agami karma.

Sanchita karma are accumulated from our past lives. Since we cannot endure or enjoy all karma in one life, hence we reap the effects, sweet or sour in the following lives, depending upon how much we have accumulated. These are considered consumed only when the person has enjoyed the fruit because of good deeds or suffered due to bad deeds and not otherwise.

Prarabdha is the present fruit bearing karma, which is a portion of accumulated karma that a person has to suffer in any case in present life.

Kriyamana karma are the ones for which we are working in our present life and which will shape our future later.

Only in human life we can change our future destiny. After death we loose our ability to act and perform until we take another birth again in a human body. And when we reap all the fruits of our deeds from our past and present lives, we get free from the cycle of births and rebirths and attain Moksha or salvation.

Once asked from a saint, "what will decide if we will get a better life or worse life in the next birth, how will we get to know about it", his reply was "every person knows what karma he has done and hence knows how next birth will be for him..."

Fourth March

If you are an early reader of this blog you must be well aware of the madness and the reason behind fourth march. With the passing years i have been experiencing a contentment in me, more and more peace and love for the things around me. I no more ask for gifts (Exceptions: clothes, shoes, handbags, cosmetics, cash, some jewelry) hush.. :D :P I still have wants and greed, I am not that old yet.

On the auspicious occasion of my birthday i want to thank God for blessing me such destiny, for providing me with everything I could ever asked for, for giving me such a nice and loving family, a protective and loving mother, an understanding supportive and very loving father, and loving and adorable sister and a brother. I want to thank my protective, and supporting cousins and trustworthy and pampering friends. I want to tell God how glad I’m with this life and for all his gifts, which he gifted me when I was born. Be always with me to guide me to the right path and to help me in becoming a better human being. On this senti note I wish my self a happy b’day. :)

Things I enjoyed on b'day :
Never ending phone calls and loads of wishes from midnight till 2 am. And from 7.30 in the morning continuing whole day. Cake and flowers, surprise gifts by Puneet bhaiya and Saumya. Whole day shopping and hopping with Rochana and sugat, sizzlers at Golas tasted awesome, a wonderful B'day song in chorus by Pari and Shine, i enjoyed it Shine.. :) and South Indian food in dinner with Montu and rest of the family was wonderful.. Cake was delicious bhaiya and Saumya.. i enjoyed it a lot, and that's why saying it again n again. :) And last Photo session and unlimited photos with with Apurva, was hilarious and lovely :)
The world around me made my day. It was a Happy B'day.

Nothing is forever
neither a hill that stands still
nor river that seemed flowing forever
the winds and pretty weather
the roses and carnations
neither this beautiful time
Nor even you and i
who make it so
But the moments will be here
till the eternity
till we live them again n again
until the ages
until our births n rebirths
until they are forgotten
but left touched forever...
