What is the Meaning of Karma? What is the Law of Karma? (VIDEO)

by Pulkit Mathur, The Spiritual Bee


Launching the New Video Series on Karma!

The law of karma is one of the pivotal spiritual truths that underlie the philosophy of Advaita Vedanta, upon whose mighty shoulders the Hindu religion rests. This same law of karma, with some variations, also underlies other great Indian religions of Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism. Even so, most of us Indians, unfortunately possess a very superficial understanding of karma, and because of this we end up harboring all sorts of odd misconceptions about this great law in our minds.

So in this newly launched video series on karma, we shall take a deep dive into understanding the nitty-gritties of karmic law as explained by the great sages of Advaita Vedanta, and try to answer some key questions that often arise in our minds, such as:

  1. Who keeps watch over all the good and bad deeds that we perform?
  2. Who judges our deeds?
  3. How is karmic punishment meted out? Who decides what punishment is appropriate for a given crime?
  4. Why does it take many life-times for karmic rewards and punishments to be dispensed? Why is justice not immediate?
  5. Why do good people suffer and the corrupt roam free?
  6. Are all misfortunes because of past karma? And many more..

So let us begin with the first video of this series which deals with: What is the meaning of the word karma, and what precisely is the law of karma?

    I have seen your video on Savami vivekanand,wherein you tried to through upon us the bullshit you are eating.Do you think you are doing any good to the society by your filmsical vomiting?You will harm already wounded society.I want to draw your kind attention to the fact that Vedanta is not a philosophy and due to this misconception you are going in the opposite direction.You are quoting Hindu Saints and talking as of Socrates or Dante . In this video you have taken up the ultimate and you donot know even the shit.You quote the others who were talking to the persons of different levels and were knowing what they are talking.You are talking to whom?A KG student or a person in Phd course? Or the person who is in between.
    May I ask you have you experienced what is karma?You have quoted Geeta,have you even gone through whole of Geeta ,forget about understanding,which is beyond you .If you dare,if you care ,go through the first few versees of 8th chapter of Geeta,it is there where the krishna has told his disciple Arjun who has come up in Degree classes.It is very satisfying to ego to preech whatever we have crammed up and vomit it without any care, what so ever, how much it will harm the society,humanity.You can reach me on my mail …..asvijairania@gmail.com to understand what Karma actually is? and why it is explained differently by the different saints at different times.If Yamraj is talking to Yechiketa meaning is different and is different when Vshishth is talking to Rama,different when Krishna is talking to Arjuna and is different when Vivekananda,or Arbindo were talking to masses present before them.
