KARMA AND ITS EFFECTS

The word Karma means action.  It comes from the Sanskrit root 'KRI'.which means to act. It refers to the result of past actions, present actions and actions we will perform  in the future. The karmas of the past, present and future are called Sanchita, Prarabdha and Agaami respectively.
SANCHITHA:  These are the result of actions that  have been gathered in this birth  and all other previous births.
PRARABDHA: These are the present actions what we are doing now in this life time and its results.
AGAMI:            These are future actions that result from our present actions.
Lord Srikishna in Bhagavat Githa  said that every one is   forced to act helplessly according to the qualities he has acquired from the modes of material nature and  therefore no one can refrain from doing something, not even for a moment. Even for the most highly educated person on the mundane plane, it is impossible to get out of the entanglements of Maya, simply by theoretical knowledge. . When a living e…

WHO WILL CRY WHEN WE DIE?

It is natural that if a person dies in a family, all the  blood relations and other members  will cry for the beautiful, meaningful and colorful  memories the deceased has make them witnessed and enjoyed  in their  life and the lessions and life changing values they learnt from him. The people very close feel great pain for the loss of their well wisher.  But there may be some members  also in the family of the deceased,who cry more than the blood relations, for the sake of Society.

Since times immemorial we have been hearing  the story of Lord Rama from Ramayana, an Indian Epic.  He was loved by all, and even by His enemies.  He was the embodiment of a perfect human  being.  He was given the title of "Maryada Purushothama" considering him as a Supreme being for His unbroken principles  as an ideal son, a wise brother, a caring husband, a good friend, a best disciple etc., but most importantly a notable and admiring king in the clan of Ishvaku.

SELFISHNESS

We hate others who are selfish, but justify ourselves when the same feature(selfishness)is within us.  Lack of sympathy has been seen as one of the roots of selfishness. This trait  puts an ugly mark on the soul of an individual. Some selfish people treat others as an option when ever they require some favour from them. After their work is over they treat them  like  strangers. In Mahabharat an Indian epic, Duryodana, son of Dhritharastra, the king of Kourava Dynasty, supported Karna, who was son of low caste person ie., Sutha  in a tournament with his selfish motive. Karna an Archer was not allowed to show case his skills on the basis of his caste.  Duryodana with his selfish motive crowned Karna as king of a small country called Anga, to take revenge against pandavas who are sons of King Pandu, as he desperately wanted a good Archer on his side to match Arjuna. Likewise in Ramayana an Indian epic, there is an instance of selfishness which showed drastic effect on the  family  of k…

FOOD CONSUMPTION

Food has major role in human existence. It influences not just our physical health, but also our consciousness. There is a saying "You are what you eat". So we must eat food that helps us in making spiritual advancement in our lives. Lord Srikrishna in Bhagavat Githa, said that food determines the gunas (satvic, rajasic and thamasic) of  human beings in Chapter 17 verses 8 to 10. Here is the brief description about them: Satvic foods are those that lead to clarity of mind and physical health. These foods are very dear to those of goodness. They promote longevity, virtues, health,strength, happiness,joy etc., Fruits, vegetables,milk, milk products, sugar, rice,wheat, honey, juices etc., come under this category.
Rajasic foods are those that have a stimulating effect on the mind and body. Those foods lead to aggressiveness and irritability. They are very bitter, sour,salty,hot, pungent etc. These foods cause pain, grief,disease, etc., and liked by persons in the mode of pas…

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BELIEF AND FAITH.

Generally we know that faith is a confidence or trust in a person.It is very essential between wife and husband to lead their marital life happily. In the religion's view faith and confidence are both required for spiritual growth. If we come to the point of realisation of God, it is the real foundation of the entire structure of spirituality. Faith in reality and faith in the right course are ment for realisation. It is a lively link between mortal and immortal and is one of the six sampathis  of the third sadhana of yoga.
Regarding faith , we know the story of bakth Prahlad son of Hiranyakasyap, an evil daitya king. Prahlad is a devoti of Lord Vishnu. Hiranya Kashyap did not like his son to be the bhaktha of his enemy Lord Vishnu. Despite several warnings from his father, Prahlad continues to worship Lord Vishnu.  Then Hiranyakashyap decided to kill Prahlad. He adapted  each and every method to kill his son. He even tried to trample his son with elephants also. But Prahlad fac…

Who is Sadguru?

Generally everyone knows about teacher/Lecturer, who educates  the pupils. He teaches the knowledge of the subjects like English, Science, Social, Maths, etc., but it is far away from the knowledge of God. He teaches about the activities in this realistic world, viz., the style of living and how to behave in the society. He teaches us how to make our self a perfect human being to live in the society. 
Whereas Guru gives us Gyan (knowledge) about God, and about spirituality. He teaches us the process to attain God or Almighty by his devine speech or advices. Guru teaches us not only how to live the life in this world but also the life after death. A person who has healthy body, wealth, fame, good family and abundant knowledge of Scripters, epics, vedas and Upanishads and he himself a great writer of scripters but he has not surrendered himself at the feet of a Guru, then he has achieved nothing. 
Sri Ramchandra Maharaj, founder of Sahaj Marg, who himself is a Sadguru …

Subtlest Means

The time has come that the man is awakened to the need of Spirituality.  The force of Creation has created  outward tendencies in man.  That is why in course of time, he has created several worlds which has resulted in making him complex. The present imperfect state of mind is the result of his own doings. Unfortunately, the basic fact that God is simple and can be achieved by simple means is lost sight of.  It has been preached from almost all platforms that realisation  of the Absolute(God) is beyond the capacity of the common man.  This mistaken notion, prompted by self styled gurus, has settled down in almost everybody's heart, and today they have even lost the craving for higher aspirations.
