Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People –  Part 3 | Swami Mukundananda Yale University Talk | JKYog


in our stay in this material realm in
this so-called jailhouse of God things good and mad are not just happening to
us randomly they are not happening to us just by God’s will they are happening to
us as a consequence of our actions plus God’s will so there is a law of action
and reaction that exists in the world in the Vedic culture and scriptures we call
it the law of karma the same exists in the other religious traditions and hence
the Bible says they wear your sin shall find you out the Vedic scriptures the
Maharaj states Hashem a were booked of young Cretan Karma Shoob harsh
hum you will have to reap the results of good and bad Karma’s now the word karma
has been accepted in the English language as well so I don’t need to
explain karma is the reactions of our actions now when your time frame is of one
lifetime a lot of questions remain unanswered and very often one is induced
to conclude that this world is truly unjust for example if a child is born
blind and that blind child says what did I do to be born blind
what answer can be gift to that child if you tell the child it is a result of
your Karma’s the child says I never did anything this is from childhood I’m
blind if you say it was the will of God the
child becomes confused God is compassionate why is he doing such
things but this Karma’s are coming from innumerable lifetimes the Vedic
scriptures state there are three kinds of Karma’s son chip card product car and
cream on karma son shit curve is the stockpile of our Karma’s of innumerable
past lifetimes in the journey of the soul in this material realm we have
forgotten God remembers he keeps an account it is stored in the causal body
within us that is the sonship garm of past lifetimes when we are born God
takes one section of that sonship Karm and gives it to us this portion of your
Karma’s you will have to reap in this lifetime this has become your destiny
for this lifetime that destiny decided upon birth is called product hence each
soul is born with their own flower of the Karma as people say somebody is born
with the golden spoon in the mouth somebody is born in the poor slums this
time to illiteracy and drunk parents this is a difference of the proud of the
Karma’s and the third is cream on garlic cream on karma is the actions we perform
in the present out of our own free will so at any moment no matter what our
destiny given to us we still have a certain amount of freedom to decide and
act according to our free will so reactions in the present we perform from
our free will are called priam and Carl and the results that we get in
our life is a combination of our cream on our product the will of God and other
factors so our destiny our product is decided but the cream on is not decided
that is in our hands and that is why it is said while acting don’t bring destiny
to your mind if let us say a person falls sick the sickness could be for two
reasons it could be because of destiny it could be because of wrong actions or
wrong habits or wrong thought patterns now the person doesn’t know why I am
sick why did I get diabetes if the person assumes I have fallen sick
because of destiny that person will not endeavour to treat
the disease it’s possible if the disease was treated it could have been cured
so our Veda defines two kinds of diseases dosage and karma karma jar
diseases coming from your destiny it was decided you had to get it you have to
bear it when it’s finished you will get cured and there is dosage that is coming
from our own actions now those can be changed so the waiter said never been
lazy while acting don’t bring destiny to your mind but when the results come
remember the results are not in your hands there were so many other
factors responsible for results so we contended prayatna me subhan careful and
effort calm a son touched contented in results when we do this we
are never disturbed whatever happens to us

  1. There is sanchit karma of past lifetimes, prarabdh karma destiny that we need to bear in this lifetime and kriyaman karma the actions we do out of free will. Though how bad the destiny is, still we are free to choose our attitude. Be careful in your efforts, but be contented in results as they are dependent on many factors our effort, destiny, will of God, situations etc. Thanks Swamiji

  2. Swamiji beautifully explains that good and bad circumstances are a consequence of our actions (karma) and to some extent God’s will. When we experience adverse situations, we wonder what we did to deserve such consequences because our understanding of the law of karma is limited to one lifetime. However, our life is the function of three kinds of karmas – sanchit, prarabdh, and kriyaman. Thank you, Swamiji!

  3. Swamiji teaches us that the Sanchit Karma is accumulation of actions across endless lifetimes. Prarabdh karma constitutes a portion of Sanchit Karma, which becomes our current destiny. Both these karmas are fixed. However, Kriyaman Karma is what we perform out of our independent will and not fixed. Swamiji advises us to take responsibility for our actions, pursue spiritual growth, and ask God for grace to break the cycle of life and death. Thank you, Swamiji!

  4. Thank you Swamiji for sharing this beautiful message – Yes, a certain portion of one’s life is pre-determined, at the same time one has the freedom and the free will to perform actions that shape his/her destiny.

  20. Why bad things happen to good people — Part 3

    — Law of Karma
    — Reaction of our Actions
    — Actions of Innumerable Lifetimes

  21. Out of our past lifes sanchit karma, some called prarabdh is given to us in this life as destiny. Actions done out of free will is called kriyaman karma. By carefully choosing our free will we can change our future. So we should carefully put in our efforts but be contented with results as it is not in our hands. Thanks Swamiji

  22. Aryuveda has describes two kind of disease. Karamaj disease is coming from our Destiny and Dosaj is coming from our own actions which can be changed. So don’t be lazy and stay contented with results.

  23. Whatever good or bad happens to us is not due to random events but is due to reaction to our actions(I.e karma) in past life (Sanchit karma) , current life (Prarabdh karma ) and free will to act now (Kriyaman karma) . Thanks 🙏Shri swamiji to explain in such a simple way with real life examples .

  26. A beautiful explanation. According to Ayurveda there are two kinda of karma Doshaj and Karmaj. As we are responsible for every action we had made.

  27. Justice is when you get what you deserve,injustice is when you are deprived of what you deserve and grace is when you get what you don't deserve.

  28. Wonderful discourse by Swamiji regarding karmas, though we are destined ( Prarabdh), we do have freedom to perform our actions without worrying for the results as they are based on our actions (kriyaman karma), destiny will of God and other factors…..Radhey Radhey

  29. Whatever happens – good or bad – to us is due to our Karmas of last lives and this life too. Thanks 🙏Shri Swamiji for nicely explaining the 3 different kind is Karmas – Sanchit , Prarabdh and Kriyaman . We have free will to act in day to day but we get into good or bad situation is the result of all these 3 Karmas. Hence do good , be good and think good so that we deposit good Karmas in our account making it +ve result. Do not miss this important wisdom on Karmas. Jai Ho !

  30. Then worldly judges have their limitations but in the court of God, He is all knowing and cannot make mistakes. God is the witness, the police and the judge hence in God's court we can expect perfect justice

  31. The justice means when you get what you deserve; injustice is when you are deprived of what your deserve and grace is when you get more than what you deserve.

  32. The law of karma is dependent on three factors -sanchit, prarabdh and kriyaman karmas. So when we are experiencing bad or adverse situations we should do our best and leave the rest in the hands of God.

  33. Swamiji beautifully says that our karmas are an accumulation of actions across endless lifetimes. However, what we perform out of our independent will is not fixed. Swamiji advises us to take responsibility for our actions, pursue spiritual growth, and ask God for grace to break the cycle of life and death. Thank you, Swamiji!

  34. Understand that it is our own karma that has come in front of us as good or bad circumstances! Hence, take responsibility for your own thoughts and actions and make them productive always!
