Prarabdha karma is
that facet of cosmic life that does not manifest in human life as a predetermined
cause. The residual balance of karma in every life manifests itself in the next
life for it is the balance of karma of the earlier manifestations that decides
what our next manifestation would be. However Prarabdha karma does not manifest
itself in the regular routine.
one knows what our future in present life would
be. Part of our future is governed by the karma
performed by us in the present manifestation...
however a chunk of the present life gets dictated
by the Prarabdha karma inherited by us from the
The total sanchit karma (accumulated karma) of all
the previous lives is brought forward to the new
manifestation... the new life but the Prarabdha
karma does not get transferred in this manner. As
we bring forward the closing balance of the year
as the opening balance of the New Year... in the
cosmic system this principle does not hold well
in its entirety. One never knows when our Prarabdha
karma may fructify and in which manifestation.
is as if a bad debt of the previous years that had been written off the records
is all of a sudden paid back in this life. It is almost like gaining a lottery.
The prime reason why some people are lucky in the present manifestation!
Every lottery... every gain in life that that owes its existence to the karma
performed by us in the earlier manifestations is the result of our positive Prarabdha
karma manifesting gloriously before us. The opposite is also truthful. If we have
negative Prarabdha karma following us... it is possible that we may incur heavy
unprecedented losses in present life. We sometimes find people unlucky!
When our Prarabdha karma
would manifest and in which manifestation always remain a mystery. It is Prarabdha
karma and only Prarabdha karma which remains hidden from mankind in every manifest
phase of life. It is only while gaining enlightenment that the karma gets burnt
We may be performing perfectly in present life yet, due to the negative Prarabdha
karma following us we may land in trouble. It is in the best interests of human
beings to perform positive karma (good karma) in present life so that all the
ill effects of the negative Prarabdha karma following us get neutralized slowly
again repeat that to neutralize the negative effects of the Prarabdha karma it
is essential that we perform only positive karma (good karma) in our present life.
A difficult task indeed... yet unavoidable if we are to get out of the clutches
of negative effects of Prarabdha karma.
Prarabdha karma seems to have been created by God Almighty so that the intelligent
breed of human beings does not interpolate their future or the past. In such circumstances,
all cosmic theories would have failed and collapsed.
By controlling their present karma... it would have been possible for human beings
to control their future and that would have been the least God Almighty desired.
Our present manifest life is not the culmination of our total balance of karma
of the previous lives. Our present life in fact is the culmination of total balance
of karma of the previous lives less the effects of Prarabdha karma in vogue.
To maintain the continuity of the cosmic system, God Almighty introduced the concept
of Prarabdha karma... a hidden factor which could never be guessed by a living
human being. This indeterminate factor... the Prarabdha karma plays a crucial
role in our manifest life. To compensate for the negative balance of Prarabdha
karma... human beings continue to perform positive karma (good karma) in the present
lives... the prime reason why good always prevails on bad in the end.
is the hidden factor of Prarabdha karma that becomes the governing factor in the
destiny of life. Every living being is controlled indirectly by Prarabdha karma...
the hidden indeterminate factor! It is Prarabdha karma and Prarabdha karma alone
which prompts us to perform positive karma (good karma) in our present life. Only
then we can negate the negative effects of the Prarabdha karma.
Out of about 6
billion people living on Mother Earth... none knows the mantra of getting out
of the clutches of negative Prarabdha karma. While proceeding on the path of pure
spirituality... one comes across this mantra almost at the highest level of spiritual
I came across this mantra... I tried it many times to no avail. All of a sudden
the negative Prarabdha karma began dissolving. Wow... I had reached the glorious
end of my cosmic life. The experiences were unbelievable. The efficacy of this
mantra which cuts across the negative Prarabdha karma that follows every human
being is foolproof. Difficult to exercise... but takes you straight to the highest
levels of spirituality.
