God Almighty Has Given Us The Freedom To Rise Above, Or Go Back Into The Ocean Of Life

SAINTS HAVE SPOKEN A LOT about karmas and the principle of karmas. There are three types of karmas.

The first is the Kriyaman karma. From the time of birth till the time of death, this is the karma that we are doing and incurring in our body.

The second is the Sanchit karma. These are a store of our karmas, which we have incurred in this human birth, and in all our previous human births. These are karmas, which have, till now, not been redeemed. These karmas are stored in Brahm by Kal. And, periodically, some part of these karmas is given to the being to be redeemed in this life.

The third is the Pralabdh karmas. These are the current fate deeds. These fate deeds determine the life, and these are taken from Sanchit karmas from previous lives.

A mix of these karmas is given to the human being to be redeemed during the current life form. It is as per these Pralabdh karmas that we enjoy, or we suffer. These determine whether we are happy, or unhappy, whether we achieve recognition in the society, or otherwise, whether we have gain or loss. And all of these things are determined by these Pralabdh karmas, which are given to the being.

So, God Almighty has given the freedom to the human being to use this period of his life and, either rise above all of this, or go back into the ocean of life, or into hell. So, sometimes, despite living a very good life and doing good things in our current life, we find that we have suffering, we have some losses, we have some diseases and other things. So, these are all because of the Pralabdh karmas that have been given to us.

Saints can redeem the Kriyaman karmas, that is, the karmas we are incurring on a daily basis, and the store of karmas or Sanchit karmas that we have in Brahm. So, both these types of karmas can be redeemed by the Mercy and Grace of the Masters.

However, the Masters do not touch nor redeem the Pralabdh karmas, because it is on these Pralabdh karmas that the life form has been set.

Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj was an engineer and he used to go to work riding on a horse. He had this habit of holding the hair of the horse and climbing the horse, mounting the horse, and then going for work.

Once it so happened that his servant had cut the hair of the horse and had trimmed the mane. So, when Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj came to mount the horse, he could not get a good grip on the hair and, as a result, while he was mounting, he fell down on the other side. And, as a result, he had a fracture in his hipbone.

So, he had to spend quite some time in a hospital for recuperating. The doctors advised that he should eat eggs so that the bone could mend faster. So, Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj wrote a letter to Jaimal Singh Ji Maharaj and told Him about this. And he expressed his anxiety having to eat these eggs and asked Jaimal Singh Ji Maharaj whether he should follow the instructions of the doctor.

But Jaimal Singh Ji Maharaj replied to him, “What I have told you at the time of initiation, that you should not eat all of these things, I repeat that today also. So, you should not eat these eggs.” And He instructed Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj instead to consume about two hundred milliliters of ghee, or oil made out of milk, and consume that because that would also help in mending the bone faster.

So, as a result, Sawan Singh Ji Maharaj stayed in the hospital for six months. And, finally, he recuperated and he left after six months.

Jaimal Singh Ji Maharaj then told him, “What you had to suffer was for more than twelve years, but you have actually redeemed that karma by staying in this hospital for six months.”

Pralabdh karmas determine our fate. And, whether it is an ordinary person, or it is a Mahatma, so long as they are in this body, they have to redeem Pralabdh karmas. They have to settle or redeem those karmas that have been allocated to this life form.

So, when we do our Simran, a lot of our Kriyaman karmas, which we are incurring in this current life form, these keep getting redeemed and, as a result, we do not have to suffer the outcome of these karmas on our body in this lifetime. If we do not redeem these Kriyaman karmas also then, in this lifetime, we have to redeem those by either a disease, or suffering, or some losses that we incur, or other downsides. And if we do not redeem these by doing our Simran, or doing Simran adequately, we have to suffer these on our body.

So, therefore, we should do Simran and Bhajan as much as possible and, with this, we reduce our karmas, and we help ourselves from not having to suffer these on our body.

So, the time is good and the atmosphere is quiet. We should use this time. Let’s close our eyes and sit for our Dhyan Bhajan.
