What is karma? Karma, as a word, has been used very loosely. If you are reading this page, it’s likely that you are one amongst thousands who is truly seeking the right understanding of this misunderstood word – "Karma".

You are possibly here to understand how our intentions, motives, desires and the emotional drive with which we conduct our actions have an effect on our lives and how they are related to the term “Karma”.

The karma meaning in Sanskrit is to perform a deed or action. It includes actions that we do, not only through our body, but also through speech and mind.

Some have referred to karma meaning an echo of the past and also say it creates the future.Common acts like going to work, good deeds, charity, etc. also define karma in general.

However, Revered Dadashri, who has attained the knowledge of Self, gives a deeper insight on what is karma and explains that those acts are actually fruits of karma bound in one’s previous life. Thus, whatever you see externally in the current life are all the fruits of one’s inner intents of one’s past life.

Would you be surprised if you learned that…?
The reason for continuing in the cycle of birth and death is Karma.

The experiences of pain and pleasure are the results of Karma that has been charged or collected in the past life.
One negative deed does NOT get offset by another positive deed; both will deliver their results individually.
After attaining the knowledge of Self, you can be engaged in normal activities, stay in a blissful state, not bind any karma meaning, you will attain full enlightenment eventually.

One attains final liberation (moksha) only when all Karmas are destroyed.

Revered Dadashri, through very simple language, gives us the following key understandings on the theory of Karma:
Fruits of Karma are not punishment or retribution, but simply, consequences of our inner intents.

The seeds of Karma are sown in the past life and give their fruits in this life. Who gives the fruits of these Karmas? God? No. Karma meaning that it ripens into our experiences when the appropriate conditions come together. It is given by nature, which Dadashri refers to as ‘Scientific Circumstantial Evidences’ (Vyavasthit Shakti).
The key reasons for charging of Karma are the inner intent behind the action and ignorance of the Self.

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
