The whole world is nothing but the principle of karma.
If there is no bad karma there is no disease, there is no suffering. Malnutrition, infections, abuses, poverty, and illiteracy - it all happens because of the bad karmas coming into effect.

Whatever comes our way is a result of our own doing.
Gnani, the Enlightened One, explains that these effects are actually fruits of the karma bound in one’s previous life. Every experience of pain and pleasure in today’s life is the result of karma that has been charged or collected in the past life. The seeds of karma are sown in the past life and they give their fruits in this life, right from the time one is in the womb of his mother.
Everything that one encounters is one’s own design; nobody else is responsible for it.

The existence of bondage of karma lies entirely on us, we ourselves are responsible for it; to the extent that even someone abusing, physically or mentally, is due to the unfolding effect of our own karma: the other person is simply an instrument, a medium through whom Nature delivers the fruits of our karma to us. Karmas ripen into our experiences when the appropriate conditions happen to come together. Only when we have this right understanding, there is freedom!

What kind of law prevails in Nature?
When the disease is a result of bad karma created unknowingly, then medicine will quickly cure him. And if the karma was intentionally done, it could happen that there is no medicine or cure to be found for the disease. In both the cases, one does not go unpunished for the bad deeds done; but the difference is that the bad karma created unknowingly will receive some quick help, whereas those done deliberately, will not.

Fruits of karma are consequences of our inner intents.
One deliberately binds bad karma because he is not aware of the consequences; if one would, we would not do so. So, it is very important to understand what action of ours shall charge what karma, and consequently, what result we will have to bear in the next life.

God resides in every living being in this world. Therefore, we must not have the slightest inner intent to hurt any living being; or else we will immediately bind bad karmas for the wrong doing. Giving slightest pain to any living being, the pain-giving-karma that gets bound will give its fruit to us in the form of pain in future. Hence, we ought to think twice before we hurt any living being.

On the other hand, if we have the intent to give happiness to others or when we actually give happiness to others, then we are giving happiness to God, for which we bind good karmas. By sowing good seeds today, we will receive good fruits in our next life.
How can we be free of the karmas bound in the previous lives?

There is only one way to deal with karmas bound from the previous life and that is through peace and equanimity. New karmas are created when one reacts to situations of happiness and misery by way of generating attachment and hatred towards them. But if we remain in equanimity in situations of happiness and misery, new causes are not bound.

When suffering comes, one should understand that ‘I have done something bad in my past life, and now Nature is returning it back to me.’ And accordingly pass through the situation calmly and peacefully, not harnessing a single bad intent towards any person or circumstance. But since we cannot remain peaceful, we end up sowing new seeds of karma. If we cannot afford to undergo suffering, we must ensure we do not give suffering to anyone, come what may.

The key reasons for binding new karma are:
·our inner intent behind any action and
·our ignorance of Self.
Owing to ignorance of our real Self, we react with hatred. And if, just even once, we intend to do any harm to a living being, its fruits will surely come. In a way, it is good; because but for unhappiness, one would never seek liberation. Whatever happiness we think we derive in life, is all imaginary and temporary happiness; it is not the bliss of our real Self i.e. the permanent bliss of our Soul.

Akram Vignan is such a spiritual science whereby we effortlessly attain Self-Realization, with the grace of Gnani, in matter of just two hours, and that too for no cost whatsoever. Gnani, with His divine spiritual powers, sets in us a total conviction of the fact that really ‘I am a Pure Soul, and not this body or the name that I identify myself with.’

After attaining the experiential knowledge of Self, and having the inner intent to follow Gnani’s given instructions sincerely, as one develops increased awareness of the Self, then no matter if one pursues his normal activities in worldly life, one can still stay in the blissful state, and not bind any new karma - this is the beauty of Akram Vignan!!

The essential step to get started on the journey to eternal bliss is, to discover the real Self, which is possible only through Gnani. So let’s go to Gnani and get our work done, soon!!! To know more about Gnani and His given Gnan (Self-Realization), you may visit

Author's Bio: 

Ambalal M. Patel was a civil contractor by profession. In June 1958, spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within Ambalal M. Patel. From this point on, Ambalal became a Gnani Purush, and the Lord that manifest within him became known as Dada Bhagwan. A Gnani Purush is One who has realized the Self and is able help others do the same. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan used to go from town to town and country-to-country to give satsang (spiritual discourse) and impart the knowledge of the Self, as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interactions to everyone who came to meet him. This spiritual science, known as Akram Vignan, is the step-less path to Self-realization
