Are we responsible for our destiny
Destiny in hinduism - Is everything predestined
are available on fate and destiny on Internet yet, how many people
world over truly understand meaning of destiny? Every human being
can manifest destiny in totality yet, until we understand meaning
of destiny in totality... everything remains vague and unclear!
Life as a human being becomes worthwhile the moment we manifest
destiny as destined by God Almighty!
Is destiny connected
to spirituality... the true domain of God? What is it manifesting
which human beings finally gained control of destiny... are able
to change destiny at will! The control of destiny always lay in
hands of human beings... never God Almighty still, many people world
over continue blaming God for their woes most of time!
The crux of
destiny lay in karma performed by us. As is our karma... accordingly
shapes our destiny! If we truly desire living life meaningfully...
it is in our interest that we manifest destiny once and for all!
For gaining control of life... for gaining control of destiny...
we have to enact karma accordingly! Unless we learn the art of controlling
karma... nothing fruitful is gained by us!
We also need
to understand meaning of karma... something controlling which control
of destiny lay in our hands! The control of karma and destiny is
not that easily gained yet, not impossible either! By following
path of absolute truthfulness... by remaining truthful all the time,
I finally transcended all barriers of karma and destiny... gained
absolute control of life!
Karma is that
inherent ingredient of cosmic system that acts as accountant general
of entire cosmos! Whatever the actions performed by one... physical
or mental... all get recorded in books of karma every second of
life! Dogged by a bloated ego... wanton desires and greed for materialistic
riches most human beings indulged in negative karma most of time.
In the circumstances
can such people indulging in vice most of time ever gain control
of destiny! No it shall ever be... the control of destiny always
rests with people who enact positive karma most of time! Indulgence
in negative karma leads to destructive tendencies... those with
a sunny disposition and godly thinking reap fruits of positive karma...
finally manifest destiny forever!
Karma is ingrained into living system... entire consciousness that
pervades whole cosmos! No sooner life develops in cosmic system...
the doctrine of karma takes over! Every form of life... every living
form is indirectly controlled by karma. After the death of body
if residual balance of karma of present life demands our soul atman
manifesting form of a laborer in next manifestation... our soul
atman simply cannot manifest form of a Prince... it just cannot
manifest stage in cosmic system... as human beings control of destiny
always lay with us! By controlling our actions truthfully and
systematically... most human beings can enact karma... a chain of
positive karma... good karma that finally leads us in gaining Punya
karma most of time! It is by practicing right karma human beings
manifested destiny forever!
Karma is not
all about physical actions alone... the physical actions constitute
hardly 10% of total job... 90% of karma is enacted mentally! Every
second thousands of thought pass through our brain... thoughts that
were not voluntarily invoked by us but just got invoked based on
our residual balance of karma at that moment!
Not a single thought gets invoked by us that are not related to
us! Every single invocation of thought... karma that precipitates
results from our workings of day-to-day life... the workings of
our past lives! We cannot change our past but can always manifest
our present by indulging in proper karma... good karma... positive
karma most of time!
It is only
by invoking positive thoughts all the time... human beings finally
took control of karma in totality! Becoming a Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ or prophet Mohammed is the ultimate goal of
life for all human beings. Becoming an enlightened one is ultimate
goal of life in cosmic system... it is only then our soul atman
finally liberates forever from cycle of birth and death!
If we desire
reaching stage of an enlightened one... if we desire success in
life... we have to burn our karma in totality! For reaching the
end goal of life burning our karma in totality is an absolute necessity...
for those seeking success in life... enacting good karma... positive
karma all the time is the mantra! We need to accumulate Punya karma
all the time to gain success in life!
It is only by removing the dross impurities within our soul atman
human beings gained success in life! As the dross impurities within
the soul atman reduced... one became more intelligent... wiser in
the journey of life. Jnana (absolute wisdom) is not something that
needs to be gained... we only need to remove dross impurities within
by enacting good karma, positive karma most of time!
Wisdom is gained
by nullifying karma in totality! The moment karma of human beings
reduced to zero... one became an enlightened one... gained omniscience
for all practical purposes! Wisdom is something that can never
be inherited... it is gained step-by-step by indulgence in positive
karma, good karma, Punya karma all the time!
Some human beings
state that one was destined to failure in life. Yes, one remains
a failure in life if we remain bogged by wanton desires and greed
for materialistic riches! We have to come out of rut of life...
we have to see beyond the ordinary... we have to reduce dross impurities...
the ignorance within (the prime reason why a soul atman manifests
a body) to become wiser in life!
It is only by practicing right karma one step at a time one finally
reached the top of Empire state building when one can have a full
view off New York City. Standing on the first floor of Empire state
building only limited view of New York can be experienced. However
best one may try... however best our connections in life yet; full
view of New York becomes possible only by reaching the top!
In the journey
of life meaning of destiny is simple and clear... step-by-step by
curtailing our ignorance... by indulgence in positive karma... good
karma all the time we need going up the journey of life! One
day we shall reach the top of spiritual path... the seat of enlightenment
when one becomes enlightened once and for all!
good karma, positive karma all the time all successful entrepreneurs
made it a point to keep the welfare of community above personal
self! It is only then success is willfully experienced in life.
By thinking good of all... working honestly and sincerely for the
welfare of community... human beings gained absolute success in
Those individuals... entrepreneurs who ran after materialistic riches
alone in life never tasted success truthfully and permanently! True
success can only be gained by one who practices karma in a most
unselfish way! We simply cannot have a vested interest if we desire
welfare of the community ahead of us.
fruits of karma performed to God Almighty all the time... by working
as a true trustee of God... most human beings finally transcended
life... manifested their destiny in totality! By indulgence
in karma, Nishakama karma way... no human being ever failed in life!
By working as a true karma Yogi... champions of world like Andrew
Carnegie and JRD Tata finally became household names!
way of life means offering fruits of karma performed to God Almighty...
never attaching self to fruits of karma performed ever! This is
very easy to state but difficult to practice. In a world full of
material riches and beauty galore... to escape clutches of negative
karma, bad karma becomes almost impossible!
Yet, those who desire manifesting destiny finally proceeds ahead
in life Nishakama karma way... never attaching self to fruits of
karma performed! This results in our working as a true trustee
of God! This result in one experiencing success abound. The essence
of Nishakama karma way is explained in detail in the sacred Bhagavad-Gita
The sacred Bhagavad-Gita
of Hinduism is one such document knowing which one finally became
an enlightened... reached end of cosmic journey... 8.4 millionth
manifestation... when human beings gained enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana) and finally salvation (moksha). The doctrine of Bhagavad-Gita
was given to mankind by Lord Krishna, an avatar of his era (God
manifest in human form).
The entity of
Lord Krishna is beyond parallel in mankind. Even man gods like Mahavira,
Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed can never compare
with him! Lord Krishna was above all... an embodiment of an enlightened
one coupled with powers of Chanakya (the most able administrator)
in the history of mankind!
To save lives of tens of thousands of soldiers and countrymen, Chanakya
got killed about hundred Kings in a single night. His actions
never precipitated sin as the final end result of his karma was
for benefit of mankind and never the individual self! Lord Krishna
precipitated into the world scene when ugly forces of Adharma (lawlessness)
To uphold Dharma
(righteousness) in the face of Adharma (lawlessness) the coming
of Lord Krishna was necessitated! In present times... in the present
Kali Yuga (dark age... the metal age)... people await with fervor
coming of Bhagavan Kalki... an avatar of present era... one who
shall dismantle adharma (lawlessness) forever and reestablish Dharma
The cycle of
life happens once in 3500 to 5000 years! Lord Krishna came about
3600 years before now... almost 1000 years before Mahavira... the
24th Tirthankara of Jainism (preceptor)! Followed Mahavira Gautama
Buddha who came about 77 years later! Jesus Christ followed Gautama
Buddha about 423 years later! Few centuries later followed Prophet
All man gods gained enlightenment by manifesting destiny... by
negating karma... by nullifying karma in totality! For reaching
the highest portals of cosmic life... the stage of enlightenment...
establishing control over five senses and mind is necessitated.
The moment one gained absolute control over five senses and mind...
cessation of karma in totality is achieved!
celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation one finally
reached the stage of enlightenment... the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi...
when one can have a dialogue with God on permanent basis every second
of life! The ultimate meaning of life is manifesting destiny once
and for all. Reaching the portals of God Almighty is the crux of
one be in the physical manifest world... all is left behind the
moment death arrives! To manifest death... to manifest destiny one
needs traveling spiritual path! The spiritual path is best traveled
Nishakama karma way of life... offering fruits of karma performed
to God Almighty all the time! Remaining attached to bodily achievements
in cosmic system means nothing!
At some point of time in life all human beings realize shallowness
of gaining material riches abound! To get out of clutches of
materialistic life... to realize meaning of life as was meant to
be by God Almighty... one must follow path of spirituality... path
of our soul atman that directly takes us to our inner domain, our
inner self... the spirit within that pervades whole human form nay
true self... reaching the stage of enlightenment is ultimate goal
of life! The meaning of destiny... the meaning of karma is best
understood when we follow the journey of life as was meant by God
Almighty! Following the riches of material world... living life
full of vice and dogma... nothing worthwhile is achieved by human
who think humans are pawn in the hands of destiny are wrong! At
no stage of life control of human form rests with destiny! The control
of destiny always laid in hands of mankind... the individual human
being! By enacting proper karma any human being can gain control
of destiny always and ever!
Ordinary mortals... the commoners... masses who find it difficult
to control karma always remain a pawn in hands of time... thinking
God to be doer of all! After the formation of cosmos God Almighty
always acts as a Dhrista (onlooker) never interfering with creation
of his. The special power of discrimination human beings have been
endowed with is the true crux of life.
our will power... by remaining truthful in our conduct against all
human beings... one finally learns that control of destiny always
lay with human beings and not God Almighty! Simply leaving things
to God indicates lack of willpower. Remaining ignorant willfully
means pursuing path dictated by our ego... the wanton desires and
greed for materialistic riches!
We never know
what we shall be in the next manifestation... why not travel the
Now by manifesting destiny truthfully and sincerely! Gaining control
of life by enacting good and positive karma is what life is all
When about six years of age I did not ever think of such things
as manifesting destiny or what karma meant! Absolutely ignorant
of basic factors of life... a child six years of age always felt
happy while remaining truthful! Ever since six years of age I have
followed the path of absolute truthfulness honestly and sincerely!
By 13 years
of age my simple desire of seeing and meeting God in this very life
turned to firm conviction... come whatever may in this very life
I shall see and meet God! I was always prepared to meet any eventualities
in life. Even if I had to leave the confines of home, I was prepared
for that but my mother prohibited me from doing so!
the path of absolute truthfulness I slowly established absolute
control over five senses and mind! By practicing absolute celibacy
for a period of 14 years in continuation I finally reached stage
of Nirvikalpa Samadhi... the stage of nothingness after which I
could commune with God Almighty on a permanent basis every second
Not knowing what karma or destiny meant in life... not understanding
meaning of destiny or karma... I finally transcended both karma
and destiny in totality! Having burnt my karma to absolute zero...
I reached stage of self realization in 1993 at 37 years of age.
This is my last life... the last manifestation on mother Earth!
absolute purity; become pure soul atman... I have nothing more to
achieve in this life. After reaching stage of self realization I
am following the path of Mahavira... the 24th Tirthankara of Jainism
(preceptor). Mahavira gained enlightenment at 42 years of age and
then imparted the wisdom so gained for another 30 years before leaving
the mortal frame!
I have few miles
to go before I leave the mortal frame. If a village boy understanding
nothing of the cosmic world can reach stage of self realization
at 37 years of age... so can others! By understanding meaning
of destiny and karma... human beings truthfully can manifest destiny
