Query: Can you please enlighten me on which of the following is pre-determined? 1. one's birth time 2. one's parents 3. one's spouse 4. one's primary
work in life (like whether one would become a teacher or anyone else) 5. one's
moment of death and the manner of death. And also, what is not pre-determined in
Everything in life
was predetermined! However human beings were imbibed with special power of discrimination that distinguished human
beings from animals. Mounted with this special power of discrimination human beings exercised willpower! Exercising
willpower human beings finally manifested destiny.
As the cosmic journey of life was long... ending in 1.1 million manifestations in human form
on the whole, the value of 70 to 80 years of life was insignificant, negligible... insufficient to make a paramount
change. Only people like Swami Vivekananda finally succeeded in manifesting destiny in totality. Cutting across
shackles of karma of all past lives was a difficult task... more so understanding concept of Prarabdha
It is primarily effect of Prarabdha
karma that resulted in sufferings in present life. If we had a negative residual balance of karma from
previous manifestations... one suffered all the time in present life! If the residual balance of karma from
past manifestations was positive... one sometimes did win a windfall lottery! This explained why some human
beings all of a sudden won a large lottery for no karma performed by them in present
As per your query... ones birth time was not predetermined! All depended upon the residual
balance of karma of all individuals world over. If the residual balance of karma of parents matched that of an
unborn... a soul atman would manifest a human form only in the house of parents whose karma matched the best! It is
not only the karma of the unborn but also parents that had to match!
Two human beings become soul partner only if their karma matched perfectly! All divorce cases
indicate diversity in karma of individuals. The residual balance of karma contained different aspects of life. In
the normal routine... if one was destined to become a teacher, one would definitely become a teacher only! But, in
case of people like Swami Vivekananda... one could cut across all shackles of karma to reach any goal of life, any
bracket in life!
When young, I was so fascinated by teachers that I wanted to become a teacher in my life! I
even started masquerading dress of teachers. I had no eye power... yet, I started wearing power glasses (my
mistake)! I thought... if I (an ordinary village lad) could become a teacher, I would be the luckiest man on earth!
For me at that time it was easy to become a schoolteacher.
But as life progressed... I developed total affinity towards God Almighty! I wanted to go in
search of God when 11 years of age. By 13, my simple desire, wish turned to firm conviction, no matter what in this
very life I shall see and meet God! 25 years of yoga meditation... I finally landed self in laps of God Almighty.
In the wee hours of third of August 1993, I finally realized God!
I am a civil engineering graduate from erstwhile University of Roorkee (now IIT, Roorkee). I
worked for 15 years before finally retiring in life. The moment I had a darshan of God Almighty in totality in
1993... I was forbidden to go to office. I had no other alternative but to serve mankind in totality. So was
ordained by God Almighty... I was only a humble servant of God Almighty doing his bidding! As a pure soul atman, I
was supposed to follow my instinct all the time.
Whatever our residual balance of karma of the moment... all past lives, it finally decides
how our death would be! Even the manner of death was pre-confirmed! By exercising our willpower we can change our
destiny in totality. Only very few people world over exercised this special power... prime reason why most human
beings world over thought we were only a slave in the hands of destiny! This was a wrong precept... totally
Human beings can manifest destiny in totality if they really wanted to! If I... an ordinary
village lad can do it... so could others!
Whatever stage of life I may have been when young... I finally reached 8.4 millionth
manifestation, last in cosmic life cycle! This is my last manifestation on mother earth! Nowhere else to go
further... I shall but attain salvation moksha at the end of cosmic journey! The moment I leave my mortal frame, as
a purified soul atman I shall enter kingdom of god (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism)... a point of no return!
All the above queries relate to topic of karma! By understanding definition of karma, meaning
of Prarabdha karma one can reach the underlying meaning! Most human beings world over know wrongdoings of present
life and could improve upon the same. But what of wrongdoings indulged in past, previous manifestations! To cut
across shackles of Prarabdha karma was the most difficult task for most human beings world over, prime reason why
journey towards god delayed!
You ask... why women suffer most of time more than men world over! Both man and woman were
two sides of the same coin. If we had day we also had night. If we had God... we also had Satan! If we suffered in
life... we also experienced our part of happiness! If we have fire... we also had water! The woman form was meant
to suffer more than man as it was ladies who took care of the family... especially children! The responsibility on
women was much greater than that of men.
Because of the inherent bonding of Moha (extreme emotional attachment) women not only
suffered more but also failed to reach stage of enlightenment in their lifetime. In the entire history of mankind
compared to only two woman gaining enlightenment... men in thousands reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana)! My most essays articles say it bluntly that to gain enlightenment... a lady has to be born man!
For an ordinary lady reaching level of saint Gargi or Maitreyi is almost next to impossible!
Reaching God in their lifetime was very difficult for saint Gargi (a bachelor) and Maitreyi (the second dutiful
wife of sage Jnanavalakya... composer and compiler of most voluminous Brihadarankya Upanishad)! Women can do it but
for them to reach stage of enlightenment was even difficult than men!
Physical and verbal abuse was part of life... which was more predominant in an almost
uncivilized country like India! I regularly visit United States of America where conditions were much better than
India. While in America I could easily say... wow, this was how life was supposed to be lived by human beings! God
bless America for maintaining their law and order and civility in life!

These questions are very important for people who face much sufferings in life, but cannot
find any wrong-doing of present life which might have created such sufferings?
My last question is - Why do women suffer so much all around the world? Physical and verbal
violence against women have been universally present in all parts of the world and are present even now? What Bad
Karma women earned that lead them to so much sorrow?
