The word “karma” is increasingly used in people’s speech and literature. This happens largely due to the popularization of oriental philosophy, religion and all types of yoga. What does the word “karma” mean, whether we perceive and interpret it correct?
The law of karma is stated very simply: “As you sow, so shall you reap.” And it is not a simplification and not a speculative reason. The principle of karma, in essence, is just another name for Newton’s third law: “For everyaction, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Thus, this law is inherent in the structure of the Universe.
Almost every minute of life, people create certain karma and the nature will be defined by the character of attempted actions. It is important to keep in mind that inaction could also generate karma. Often obstacles and difficulties are not only caused by results of the activity in present embodiment, but also by the negative karma from past lives.
You should be not afraid of the outcome of bad karma, because there exist ways of karma correction.
Of course, the most important way to avoid negative karma is not create it here and now, having good intentions, keeping heart and mind pure, raising love to the whole world and other virtues.
Other methods of correction of negative karma are: spiritual practices, therapy with precious stones, and participation in Vedic ceremonies. In next publications we will tell more detailed about each of them.
The publication is based on materials of H. Defau’s and Robert Svoboda’s book “Jyotish. The introduction into Indian astrology”.
