I am writing this article after studying lots of vedic books and many other articles of great personalities. This article is all about my thoughts on questions about Karma, Astrology and Destiny.
The collection of karmas which we have done knowingly or unknowingly in our past life. These Sanchit Karmas is responsible for the effect of time on us in future lives means effects of planets and stars.
These are those present life Karmas which are fixed due to the effects of Sanchit Karma. These karma are our destiny also because they are result of Sanchit Karma. They can’t be changed, we have to experience the result of it.
Kriyamaan Karma are those karmas which we do in our present life and we can change it, but it also depends on our past Karmas because our nature is decided by our surroundings and these surroundings are destined means our looks, parents, siblings, home etc.
But now here free-will will come into existence.
We are driven by two energies. First one, is of time or planets which decides everything, and second one, is our own energy which is our free will.
Free will is very powerful because it decides the upcoming effects of time.
For ex. An individual is of angry nature, because of its situation and the effects of planets on it, may do wrong things when get angry but if that individual have the high amount of free will, then it can control over their anger by doing meditation or any other remedies.
God always give us a chance to improve things in that destined situation and people who have the high amount of free will they change things. Sometimes, we have very low amount of energies or free will because of very bad past karmas. So, they have to experience the result of that bad Karmas, but they also gets a chance to change things and it totally depends on that less amount of free will.
These are the collection all of those actions which will we do in future, agami karma depends on mixer of Prarabdha Karma and Kriyamaan Karma.
Time is the most powerful thing in the world or you can say that it is equally strong to free will. Because initially effect of time was decided by free will, but time is unstoppable because if time stops everything will be finished. Time stops for body, but not for the soul.
Astrology is a divine science which allows us to know the effect of time on us, because time is driven by the motion of planets and stars. Planets and stars have effects on the earth because this whole universe is unity body which is composed of five elements which is earth (soil), water, air, fire and space. Stars and planets are made up of these elements. For ex. Sun is of fiery element and similarly others, that’s why these planets and stars affect human lives and other activities on earth, planets and stars have certain vibrations, gravitational forces, electromagnetism and they affect us by these energies.
We all know that, moon affects the sea water on full moon and no moon. Human body have 75% of water, it has been seen that on full moon human beings are more mentally affected than normal day. In a survey, it has been found that on full moon more suicides and crime cases are occurred and more mad people are admitted into mental hospital.
Astrology guides us for the better life, it helps us to understand the right Karmas of us for which we are born here, it helps us to cutoff the problems of our life and change the destiny up to some limit only because there are also some fixed karmas which we can’t change.
There are three types of Karmas in astrology:
Fixed Karmas are those karmas which can’t be changed. It is identified in the birth chart of an individual, when any yoga is happening in all charts like lagna, moon, sun and all other divisional charts. It confirms the occurrence of that yoga result.
Non-Fixed Karmas are those karmas which can be changed with minimum efforts. These can change because if a yoga or affliction is in an individual birth chart and not 100% sure, it may be 20%, 40%, 60% etc. For ex. It is happening in lagna but not happening in other lagnas or a planet is debilitated in a particular house but the ruler of that house is exalted. This can happen when there are actions done in the past which neutralize or compensate each other.
So the problem may still have to be experienced and will manifest in certain time of the life, but it can be overcome easily.
Mixed Karmas are those Karmas which can be changed by doing intense and prolonged effort. For ex. Jupiter is a benefic planet for a chart and is aspecting an afflicted planet or house, it may indicate that the remedy will be related with Jupiter will very helpful to cutoff the affliction of that chart.
Similarly, remedies like meditation, mantras chanting, donations and gemstones of that planets will be helpful to cutoff the affliction of individual.
Destiny is the combined result of all those karmas and time. Destiny is fixed for Karmas which are fixed means Prarabdha Karma, but destiny can be changed for Kriyamaan Karma.
Good Sanchit Karma results good destiny, similarly bad karma results bad destiny.
For ex. If a person have very bad deeds in his past life which results to bad destiny in present life. Since, person will born with bad planetary combination, which results having bad effect of time on him, but due to some other conditions, karmas and free will, he does good karmas but he won’t get good results due to that bad time, but the result of that good karma will be effective whenever he goes through the good time. If he dies and won’t get the result of good karmas then he will get it into future life and born with good planetary positions.
Some people say that why there is the concept of past lives and effect of past Karmas on the present life and present Karmas, these are the reasons because our present partially depend on our past and suppose we do some very work today but due to tiredness and stress, we sleep and get the result of that karmas on the next day, similarly we died and get the results in next life. But this is not for those actions which gives instant results, only for those actions which won’t give instant result.
