Query: Do Unto Others
as You would have them Do Unto You... Karma
Does the saying...do unto others as you
would have them do unto you, hold good in all circumstances of life... even when someone betrayed your trust!
Does this saying... do unto others as you would have them do unto you fall under karma as detailed in sacred
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... foremost of all sacred scriptures existing on mother
The golden saying... Do unto others as you would have them do unto you is best defined by
Napoleon Hill in his famous books on self help... "Think and Grow Rich", "Master Key to Riches" and "Law of
Success"! Napoleon Hill truly was a human being par excellence! Whatever our stage in life... he always advocated
following golden rule principle... that stated, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"!
As per Napoleon Hill... as detailed in sacred
Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... as implied by laws of karma... unless we indulged in positive karma all the time... we
never experienced happiness! Indulging in vice most of time... we could not expect experience bouts of happiness at
different stages of life! It was results of good deeds that boomeranged when we indulged in good karma all the
Bad karma resulted in our suffering most of time. Good karma always had something positive in
store! If we truly desired manifesting life... we have to indulge in golden rule principle strictly as advocated by
Napoleon Hill and also teachings of Bhagavad Gita... do unto others as you would have them do unto you!
None on mother earth could escape inscrutable laws of karma... as we sow so shall we reap...
nothing less or more! Everything in human life resulted from karma performed in present or past! Everything in
physical manifest domain resulted from manifestation of karma! If we indulged in good karma... we are bound to reap
fruits of good karma performed most of time!
When we truly wished welfare of others... we received grace of God Almighty all the time! In doing good to
others... we only improved our future! Indulgence in good karma... positive karma resulted in human beings reaping
fruits of karma performed in present or future life! We just could not expect mangoes to grow on a guava
Karma yoga is that inherent principle of life that controlled entire cosmic system! In
absence of karma and evolution... life carried no meaning in cosmic system! Ever since God Almighty exploded with a
big bang and all pure souls atmans scattered all over cosmos... it was only through complex process of karma and
evolution life moved ahead in cosmic life cycle!
In Hinduism a soul is termed atman.
As per inscrutable laws of karma... the closing balance of life at the time of death of body becomes opening
balance for next manifestation! Stated in simpler words... at any given moment of time every single human being is
but the sum total of one's thoughts! Those with a sunny disposition and godly thinking always reaped fruits of good
karma performed all the time!
Those indulging in vice suffered at hands of destiny and fate! Why blame God Almighty for
karma performed by us! Human beings are absolute masters and controllers of life on mother earth! Dominated by a
bloated ego we failed to realize this important significant factor of life! The moment we subdued our ego on altar
of God Almighty... all cosmic truths unveiled before us!
For manifesting life on mother earth... establishing absolute control over inscrutable laws
of karma was an absolute must! It is only by establishing absolute control over five senses and mind human beings
finally negated karma to zero. Annihilating karma in totality meant human beings finally reaching stage of
enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and salvation (moksha)!
Karma definition is best detailed in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... a sacred Hindu text knowing which human
beings finally gained enlightenment and salvation! If we truly desired gaining self realization, God realization in
present life... cutting across shackles of karma was an absolute must!
By establishing absolute control over five senses and mind human beings finally transcended
ephemeral life! Initially, establishing absolute control over five senses and mind seemed difficult but for an
ardent seeker of spirituality nothing was impossible! If Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana could do
it in their lifetime... so could others!
Karma is an inherent trait of character of all living beings including human beings! For
manifesting destiny... for establishing absolute control over life... our understanding true definition and purport
of karma was necessitated! Most human beings world over did not understand the true definition of karma as detailed
in sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!
Moment we understood correct meaning of karma in Hinduism... we followed path of good karma... positive karma all
the time! On path of pure spirituality... for those who desired absolute success in life... manifesting karma all
the time was an absolute must! Difference between success and failure was ingrained in understanding correct
meaning of karma!
Ask any successful entrepreneur world over... roots of success lay in doctrine of karma in
entirety! 95% karma was truthfully practiced mentally! Physical aspect of karma hardly constituted 5% of total job!
Indulgence in physical work... indulgence in physical aspect of karma never meant karma in entirety! Most people
world over understood meaning of karma wrong!
Invoking good thoughts... lofty thoughts... thinking welfare of all human beings finally
understood absolute crux of life! Before we indulged in physical aspect of karma... mental karma played a major
role! We could only indulge in good deeds... if our thinking was pious... unbiased! For following path of good
karma... our remaining truthful all the time was necessitated!
Prime reason why people in West had a glowing face that was incomparable with those in East and balance parts of
world! By following path of absolute truthfulness... people in West inherently followed path of good karma...
positive karma all the time! Their good thinking reflected on their faces... in the innocent glow existing on their
The saying, "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" truly had its
