Principles of Karma

Principles of Karma – Firstly we should explain what does it mean the word karma? Karma means action. Here is the question: Where do you think your action starts? If you are aware of that our actions start from our thought, then you are correct. Without any thought, there is no action. That is why yoga put so much attention on training mind, purifying thoughts and controlling our thoughts. Because through controlling our thoughts we control our behavior, our actions.

Another important term is reincarnation. It’s believed that our body is just like a rented apartment. We have limited time during which we stay in our body and once the “contract” is over, our soul goes for a transition which we call death. Actually, our soul only goes to take a rest, contemplate action done in past life and settles intentions for next life. When soul feels ready, it chooses the body where you need it to be born and then other transition can take a place. One of the reasons why Indian people don’t show resistance towards their life is because they believe there is a reason for that. It is the result of their past karma (actions).

We have 3 types of karma that are affecting where we are right now, what situation in life we are facing. First is “sanchita”, this is past life karma. Whatever we have done in our past life has an impact on current life. You will face a certain situation in this life because of your unresolved matters. Second karma “prarabdha” you past life deeds influence your actions in this life so whatever you do or think is somehow connected with your past life. For instance, if you have done positive and good actions, you have less difficulty in this life and another way around. There is no way how we can avoid the consequences from these two Karmas. Yes, you can try to resist, escape or get around but it will always come back to you and remember, it might come back as the tougher lesson as a consequence of your resistance or avoidance. Thus for some situation, there is no point to skip the lessons, anyhow we will have to go through it. It’s our choice when we take and learn the lesson. The third one is “agami” – this is the only karma which is in our hands to change right now. This karma that we are creating at this moment, it’s fresh. I can decide just now what kind of karma I will create for my future lives.

To sum it up, try to focus on the present moment and create the purest karma which you can in the present moment and don’t be afraid to take a lesson from difficult situations in your life. All situations in our life meet us for some reason. Overcoming challenges make us a better person and make our life meaningful. So instead of asking: why me? Focus on what you can get out of the situation for you. See the positive result in it, feel the purification of your karma for future. Flow through your life with hope.  Principles of Karma Principles of Karma Principles of Karma

What can India teach you? Here you have a few reasons why to come to India…

Do you have this picture of India as a poor, overpopulated and dirty country? Are you thinking
why to come to India, aren’t you? What can bring such a journey to you? Well, I will share
with you few reasons why I think India is a place that can really make you grow a lot. The
only condition is to come with your mind open to any kind of transformation.

First challenge: Have no expectations and no plans

It might seem like an easy thing to do but actually, it’s something we in the west are really not
used to. If you come to India with a plan, it’s almost sure, it won’t work out. Then you can
choose to be disappointed and angry with India. Or you may also choose to let India
surprises you. Sometimes we may allow ourselves just discover the magic of the places we
don’t know or we initially didn’t want to see. Let things flow and uncover the beauty of
spontaneous life path.

Second challenge: Go with the flow

According to my experience, I started to question myself and the world: why we should try to
understand India? Let’s just embrace it, accept it as it is and go with the flow here. The
answer: “it’s India”, is many cases the best answer for things you don’t comprehend.

Third challenge: Go out of your comfort zone

Why should we give up our comfortable life for a while? Why go beyond our comfort zone?
The benefit is obvious, you can discover your genuine self. You may experience yourself in
a different mindset, thinking diversely, acting spontaneously or feeling more intensely. To
cross the line of comfort zone means to expand and to uncover hidden part of yourself. When
you feel you are ready to open yourself for such a shift, you will know it and India will call
for you.

You will be inspired

You will definitely be amazed by Indian culture. The kindness of local people is limitless.
Because they believe in karma, they help you asking nothing for it with an astonishing smile
on their face. Such happiness from a good action is incredible.

At least for me, this is really inspiring. The way Indian people accept the present moment,
they don’t judge anyone, living their dharma (life purpose) without question why this and that happened to them. Our western mindset of questioning all the time: Why me? Why did this happen
? Why this didn’t happen? This is our resistance. The universe has a plan for each of
us, Indian people know that. We from western country could take a lesson from it. Trust that
there is a reason for everything and accept that it’s not always necessary to understand
everything all the time.
