Law of Karma – Results of action
• Every action that we do, produces a result
• All karmas accumulated in the past -Sanchita Karma
• A portion of which has matured is called Prārabdha
Sanchita and Prarabdha Karma
•Sanchitam will not affect us now
•Prārabdha is responsible for the present life/ death
Jnānam destroys all the SanchitaKarmā

punyam vaa papamulbanam
supttothitasya kim tatsyath
swargaya narakaya vaa”
Yath karma swapnavelayaam kritham- Whatever karma is done during the time of dream...
Punyam vaaa Paapam- Whether it is a noble action or ignoble action
Ulbanam- intense, strong, powerful
Kim thath syaath- will those karmani remain ?
suptha uthithasya- on waking up from the sleep
swargaya narakaya vaa- will it give swarga or naraka...
jaganmaye dirghaswapne sphurantyete
“All these confusions are caused by a long dream, caused by a long sleep”
KARMAS OF JNANI ?
v This world is like a dream, it is Mithya
v He remembers I am a superwaker
v Functions as a waker in the world
v Does Karmas as Lokasangraha
v All the punya papam will get destroyed.
“ Jnanotpatti anantaram jnani deha krtam karma”
Actions are not done with ahamkara. Neither karthruthwam nor bhokthruthwam.
Verse 93 (449)
