Query: Destiny as per Hinduism... Meaning of
Destiny as per Hinduism is best explained in sacred Bhagavad Gita... the
doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in the battle of Mahabharata! The meaning of destiny as detailed in
Bhagavad Gita... fruits of karma that became available to one every second of life! The crux of destiny lay
in karma performed... as we sow so shall we reap... nothing less or
Those with a sunny disposition and godly thinking... those indulging in good karma...
positive karma all the time always manifested destiny that brought happiness most of time! Those indulging in
vice... paap karma... negative karma... bad karma all the time always suffered at hands of destiny! We just cannot
expect mangoes to grow on a guava tree!
If we truly desired manifesting destiny all the time... our indulgence in
positive karma... good karma all the time is an absolute necessity! In spite of this one could always suffer at the
hands of fate. Why? Whatever karma we performed in present life... all of it does not fructify immediately! A
portion of it termed Prarabdha Karma can fructify any given moment of
Prime reason why some people all of a sudden won a lottery or suffered badly at the hands of
fate! Whenever positive residual balance of karma from previous manifestations fructified all of a sudden... one
experienced happiness... won a lottery all of a sudden! What if negative residual balance of karma from previous
manifestations fructified... one suffered badly at the hands of fate!
As a human being... the highest manifest stage in cosmic life cycle; it becomes our prime
duty to assist our soul atman at every stage of life. As per Bhagavad Gita the manifest physical self... the form
of human beings is but a temporary sojourn in the entire lifespan of a soul atman. Our soul atman is the absolute
master and controller of human body and not vice versa.
We are primarily a soul atman... the spirit within on its cosmic life cycle of 8.4 million
manifestations... an earthly travel spanning 96.4 million years! A soul atman manifested human form to work out its
karma... remove dross impurities within! Gaining absolute purity is the ultimate goal of life for every soul
It is through complex process of karma and evolution life moved ahead in cosmic life cycle.
After 7.3 million manifestations in insect, plant and animal form... our soul atman... the spirit within finally
manifested human form! As a human being we are expected to indulge in positive karma... good karma all the time so
that our soul atman regained its lost original pure prime pristine primordial form at the earliest!
The moment human beings reached 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last in cosmic life
cycle... the journey of a soul atman finally came to an end! Human beings reaching stage of enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana) and finally salvation (moksha) announced permanent liberation of soul atman from cycle of birth and death! A
soul is termed atman in Hinduism.
In insect, plant and animal form... it is very difficult for a living being to manifest destiny!
The control of destiny in human form always lay in hands of every individual human being! Most human beings acted
as slaves of destiny which is an absolute misnomer!
At the time of death of present body if the residual balance of karma demanded our soul atman
manifesting form of a laborer... one could not be born a Prince! However... once born a laborer one could always
manifest destiny by marrying the Princess of the state and becoming a Prince! Manifesting destiny in human form is
difficult... but not impossible!
By controlling our karma... by redirecting all our energies towards the ultimate goal of
life... any human being world over could definitely manifest destiny forever! Establishing absolute control over
manifest karma in present life is what destiny is all about.
When six years of age I started travelling path of absolute truthfulness always and ever! By 11
I had a deep-rooted desire to see and meet God in this very life. By 13 my simple desire turned to firm
conviction... come whatever may in this very life I shall see and meet God. 25 years of yoga meditation I finally
landed in laps of God Almighty in the wee hours of third of August 1993!
This is my 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last in cosmic life cycle! Nowhere else to go
further... I shall but attain salvation (moksha) the moment I leave my mortal frame! I have reached end of cosmic
life. I have succeeded in manifesting destiny forever! None world over... including God Almighty could change my
Having reached stage of self realization in 1993... I have become a pure soul atman! The need
for a soul atman to work out its karma... manifest another body now ceased to exist! I shall rejoin the source I
When I started my journey of spiritual path... I had no inkling what God Almighty... path of
spirituality or religion was all about! I had no spiritual master (preceptor) to guide me ever in this journey of
life! Throughout my spiritual sojourn I travelled path of unknown.
Still, I had my quota of pitfalls. Do not remember how many times I had to eat hell for
breakfast... how many contemplations of suicide! As my goal of life was absolute... I finally reached end goal of
life... the moment I gained self realization... God realization in 1993!
If one has the willpower demonstrated by Swami Vivekananda... is one have the will to do and
die... any human being world over could manifest destiny... change destiny forever! Destiny and karma are directly
related. Our destiny is directly linked to karma performed! By molding our karma... we definitely can manifest
destiny at any stage of life!
