Happiness is our nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside - Ramana Maharshi

 FW: Kanchi Priest, Foreign visitor and Karma story

I love stories and this is nice one about Karma...please forgive me for my comments. When I read something compelling I can't resist from commenting. (one of my bad habits.)

There are few simple rules of Law of Karma

1) God is not Random, Blind or Biased

2) God has set an Absolutely Perfect System in motion called Law of Karma. It never fails...never goes wrong! Don't blame God if you don't understand the system.

3) Law of Gravity never fails! Law of Karma never fails! You are free to break the laws. Jump from 15th floor and you will be able to test both. DISCLAIMER: There WILL be consequences! :)

4) God is only a delivery man (post office) He never tampers with your package....yes, he delivers on weekends too...24/7 No holidays! :)

5) You are free to send anything to anyone, Post office will always deliver one copy back to you...in the future. Never complain "Why did I get this?" the answer is "You wrote it" Period!...Don't write nasty things next time...it is as simple as that.

6) Exceptions to the rule: Delivery can never be cancelled but in rare instances it can be postponed...ONLY if you are in personal contact with your local branch (Guru)....or the head office directly (Divine.)

Everything about Law of Karma

Kanchi Priest, Foreign visitor and Karma - Source: Unknown

Once a foreigner interested in the philosophy of Hinduism was waiting for darshan of Mahaperiyaval at Kanchi to clarify his doubt. Shortly,he got his appointment and without wasting time, he put forth his question.

“Swamiji, I understand all your concepts, value them but for one particular faith (i.e) same soul taking various births, papa, punya being carried forward to the next births etc…Can you please make me comfortable on this aspect?”. Because, in all our religions, we get the reward for what we do in this birth only. (i.e) if we are honest,
God is pleased and blesses us with benefits and we are dishonest, we get punished by Him.

At this point, Periyaval asked him, whether he owns a car and if he could do a favour of collecting some statistical information within Kancheepuram using his vehicle. The guest readily agreed, at the same time wondering why his question was not answered spontaneously.

Please, swamiji, go ahead, “What is the service you expect me to do now?”.

Periyaval said, ‘Please go around 10 maternity centres within Kancheepuram and collect the data of children born within the last 2 days – Child’ s gender, health condition, parents name, status, educational qualification, time of birth.

The man said “Fine, this is nothing, immediately rushed in his car like Lord Muruga goes in Thiruvilayadal and within a day he was back in the matam with exact statistics in front of Mahaperiyaval. He went through the statistics, about 15 children were born in 10 hospitals, 8 female and 7 male infants, out of which 3 children had malnutrition
defects, 2 children were the first child of highly rich parents, born in luxury hospitals while 4 were children of coolie labourers who already had few children.

Mahaperiyaval now looked at the gentleman and started asking few questions:

Do you think any of these children have been honest / dishonest within 2 days of their birth? Probably they could not even recognize their own mother. So, they have neither earned papa or punya in this birth.

According to your concepts, all these children should be living exactly identical to each other, but not so practically – some are ill, some are healthy, some are born to rich parents, some are born to poor parents –

Remember all children born in the same day, same longtitude, latitude, you can’t blame their horoscope which is going to be almost identical….

The gentleman was dumb folded!

It is here the concept of previous birth erupts! All these children have taken their present birth according to their deeds(karma) and the resultant papa, punya which they have assimilated in their previous births.

Sanatana Dharma was smiling at the gentleman through Maha periyava

Yoga is an exact science. It aims at the harmonious development of body, mind and soul. Everyone should follow one Yoga as their primary Yoga (based on their character). Then we must combine Karma Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Gyan Yoga. This “Yoga Synthesis” will lead one to the God.
