Who is speaking? The italics are the original authors words, the bolds are mine,
WHAT IS KARMA ?
Karma is a Sanskrit term. It means action or deed. Any physical or mental action is Karma. Thinking is mental Karma. Karma is the sum total of our acts. both in the present life and in the preceding births.
Karma leads to prarabhda. That means, action leads to a situation to respond. And now if start re read, this line, or re define what exactly is an action, and what is a situation, you will understand tat, they are both the same, or work hand in hand.
Karma means not only action, but also the result of an action. There is a hidden power in Karma or action termed ‘Adrishta’ which brings in fruits of Karmas for the individual. The consequence of an action is really not a separate thing. It is a part of the action and cannot be divided from it. –> Crap
Karma, according to Jaimini Rishi, is the performance of Agnihotra and other Vedic rituals. According to the Gita, any action done with Nishkamya Bhava is Karma. Lord Krishna says: “Work incessantly. Your duty is to work but not to expect the fruits thereof.” The central teaching of the Gita is non-attachment to work. Breathing, eating, seeing, hearing, thinking, etc., are all Karmas. Thinking is the real Karma. Raga-dvesha (likes and dislikes) constitute real Karma. à holy crap.
Tell me how do one define humans? Do you say, humans are Jesus, humans are saints who live with out eating? Humans cant think? What the fuck….humans are animals, looking for survival, survival is a desire to live, if existence is a desire, then all acts are children of a desire, if feel that in the name of god, one is abusing the greatness of this stupendous body, one is like doubting the great honest servant, I will fuck every bastard who does that, it could be saint or a god. I don’t give a dam.
Man is threefold in his nature. He consists of Iccha, Jnana and Kriya. Iccha is desire or feeling. Jnana is knowing. Kriya is willing. These three fashion his Karma. He knows objects like chair, tree. He feels joy and sorrow. He wills – to do this, or not to do that.
Behind the action, there are desire and thought. A desire for an object arises in the mind. Then you think how to get it. Then you exert to possess it. Desire, thought and action always go together. They are the three threads, as it were, that are twisted into the cord of Karma.
Desire produces Karma. You work and exert to acquire the objects of your desire. Karma produces its fruits as pain or pleasure. You will have to take births after births to reap the fruits of your Karma. This is the Law of Karma. à lovely crap.
Humans survival is the bottom line, his survival can be categorized into three, namely, thought, physical, emotional survival. These three are tools cum driving forces, or sources of learning, or the minds interpretation/utilization of its senses.
Every object remains in its state of stationary or rest, until unless its been interfered by an external force. Which can be understood in our context as, one is supposed to be in a state of dead, when the functionality of brain is dead, or the functionality of any other or all organs are dead. If either ways, if a human is qualified to be called as living, then he moving in thought, emotion or physical, (don’t debate me on coma state), now since fucking human cant live on air, he needs to move his butt to feed his belly, thus using his limbs and the mass in the head, now hence the first karma the kurma takes place, now as per your philosophy, you are telling that, here starts the problems. No why on earth you want my mind to dead(spiritually?, clinically?)? why on earth you are trying to poison in the name of god, this life, why life is a turmoil? Why fucking life Is shit? I fyou felt that, why the fuck don’t you kill yourself? And help yourself? What needs this fucking body to survive? Im able to get all I want, so are you? But don’t you feel happy about it? Don’t you feel like thanking to it? Just because one uses the name of god, one cant the crap like this.
Karma is of three kinds, viz. Sanchita or the accumulated works, Prarabdha or the fructifying works, and Kriyamana or the current works. Sanchita is all the accumulated Karmas of the past. Part of it is seen in the character of man, in his tendencies and aptitudes, capacities, inclinations and desires. Prarabdha is that portion of the part of Karma which is responsible for the present body. It is ripe for reaping. It cannot be avoided or changed. It is only exhausted by being experienced. You pay your past debts. Kriyamana is that Karma which is now being made for the future. It is also called Agami or Vartamana.
In Vedantic literature, there is a beautiful analogy. The bow-man has already sent an arrow; it has left his hands. He cannot recall it. He is about to shoot another arrow. The bundle of arrow in the quiver on his back is the Sanchita. The arrow he has shot is Prarabdha. And the arrow which he is about to shoot from his bow is Agami. Of these, he has perfect control over the Sanchita and the Agami, but he must surely work out his Prarabdha. The past which has begun to take effect he has to experience.
Actions are of three kinds, viz., good, bad and mixed. Good Karmas make you a god or angel in heaven. Bad Karmas throw you in lower wombs. Mixed actions give you a human birth. What ever you fancy to speak, now this last bolded part is the kick ass.
Every work is a mixture of good and evil. There can be neither absolute good work nor absolute bad work in this world. This physical universe is a relative plane. If you do some action, it will do some good in one corner, and some evil in another corner. You must try to do such actions that can bring the maximum of good and the minimum of evil.
Now some one please let me know if im confused? If as per this gentleman’s envisions of the karma, that has to performed without any desire, then where on earth it makes any sense about the judgment of the act into the holy three categories called the good, the bad, and the mixed. This reminds me of the global humanity racism where the humans are categorized into the whites, blacks and the mixed or the browns. Why don’t these mother fuckers, don’t be just humans, but get into the loops of racism as if the white survive by eating the great food, and the blacks eat there shit. The same way, why the fuck is this tier system, of judgmental of an act?
The Doctrine of Karma forms an integral part of Vedanta. The Law of Karma is one of the fundamental doctrines not only in Hinduism, but also in Buddhism and in Jainism.
As a man sows, so he shall reap. This is the Law of Karma. It expounds the riddle of life and the riddle of the universe. It brings solace, satisfaction and comfort to one and all. It is a self-evident truth. Fortunately, the Westerners have also begun now to acknowledge its importance and veracity. The Americans have now full belief in this doctrine. Every sensible man will have to accept it. There is no other go.
A close study of this law gives encouragement to the hopeless man, to the desperate and ailing. Destiny is created by man’s thoughts, habits and character. There is every chance for his correction and improvement by changing his thoughts and habits. The scoundrel can become a saint; the prostitute can become a chaste lady; a beggar can become a king. This mighty law provides for all this.
The Doctrine of Karma only can explain the mysterious problem of good and evil in this world. The Doctrine of Karma only can bring solace, contentment, peace and strength to the afflicted and the desperate. It solves our difficulties and problems of life. It gives encouragement to the hopeless and the forlorn. It pushes a man to right thinking, right speech and right action. It brings a brilliant future for that man who lives according to this universal law. If all people understand this law correctly and discharge their daily duties carefully, they would rise to sublime heights in the ladder of spirituality. They will be moral and virtuous and have a happy, peaceful, contented life. They can bear the burden of Samsara with patience, endurance and strength of mind. There will not be any room for complaint when they see the inequalities in birth, fortune, intelligence, capacities, etc. There will be heaven on earth. All will rejoice even in suffering. Greed, jealousy, hatred, anger, passion will vanish. Virtue will reign everywhere. We will have a glorious Satya Yuga now with peace and plenty everywhere. Blessed is the man who understands and lives in the Law, for he will soon attain God-consciousness and become one with the Law-giver! Then the Law will no longer operate on him.
Now back to where we started, act, with out desire, right, well doesn’t seems to be easy anymore or sensible, do we need so much crap to act, with out a desire?
As a man sows, so he shall reap.(wtf? How can one without the desire to sow can reep, why are we talking all this shit when we have one objective called not to desire?) This is the Law of Karma. It expounds the riddle of life and the riddle of the universe. It brings solace, satisfaction and comfort to one and all. It is a self-evident truth. Sorry is my mind gone bonkers? Now some one fucking explain me what the fuck is desire? And by the way, I have come across only mentally challenged people acting without desire, with solace, satisfaction? Is this bible to create me one like them? Why would any act, with out any desire of its fulfillment, sorry are we talking about humans? Or some other new creatures that im supposed learn about them?
Karma Yoga is consecration of all actions and their fruits unto the Lord. Karma Yoga is performance of actions dwelling in union with the Divine, removing attachment and remaining balanced ever in success and failure.
Karma Yoga is selfless service unto humanity. Karma Yoga is the Yoga of action which purifies the heart and prepares the Antahkarana (the heart and the mind) for the reception of Divine Light or attainment if Knowledge of the Self. The important point is that you will have to serve humanity without any attachment or egoism.
Action of some kind or the other is unavoidable. You cannot keep quiet without doing anything. What binds you to phenomenal existence or Samsara is not the action but the idea of doership and enjoyership. Karma binds when it is done with a selfish motive, with the expectation of fruits. But when action is done without the expectation of fruits, it is liberating. If you act as an instrument in the hands of the Lord, as a participant in the cosmic activity of Nature, without expectation of fruits, that Karma will not bind you. Karma, then becomes Karma Yoga. Work unselfishly. Feel that you are only an instrument and that the Lord is working through you. Surrender the actions and their fruits to the Lord. You will be freed from the bonds of Karma and enjoy peace.
The practice of Karma Yoga prepares the aspirant for the reception of knowledge of the Self. It makes him a proper Adhikari (aspirant) for the study of Vedanta. Ignorant people jump at once to Jnana Yoga, without first having a preliminary training in Karma Yoga. That is the reason why they fail miserably to realize the Truth. Various impurities lurk in the fourfold mind (Antahkarana). The mind is filled with likes and dislikes, jealousy, etc. They only talk of Brahman. They indulge in all sorts of useless controversies, vain debates and dry, endless discussions. Their philosophy is only on their lips. In other words, they are lip-Vedantins. What is really wanted is practical Vedanta through ceaseless, selfless service. Selfless service is the only way to remove the impurities lurking in the mind.
Two things are indispensably requisite in the practice of Karma Yoga. The Karma Yogi should have non-attachment to the fruits of actions. He will have to dedicate his actions at the altar of God with the feeling of Ishvararpana. Non-attachment brings freedom from sorrow and fear. Non-attachment makes a man absolutely bold and fearless. When he dedicates his actions at the Lotus Feet of the Lord, he develops devotion to God and approaches Him nearer and nearer. He gradually feels that God works directly through his Indriyas or instruments. He feels no strain or burden in discharge of his works now. He is quite at ease. The heavy load which he felt previously on account of false notion has vanished out of sight now. à You stole my words, but I want to borrow two words this time, Fuck you.
The practice of Karma Yoga does not demand that you should possess enormous wealth. You can serve with your mind and body. If you find a poor sick man lying on the road side, give him some water or milk to drink. Cheer him up with sweet, encouraging words. Put him in a carriage and take him to the nearest hospital. If you have no money to pay for the carriage, carry the patient on your back and see that he is admitted into the hospital. If you do service like this, your heart will be purified. God is more pleased with such sort of service for the poor helpless people than with the service done by rich people with pomp and vanity.
If any one is suffering from acute pain in any part of the body, at once shampoo the affected part very quickly. Feel, when you massage, that you are shampooing the body of the Lord (Virat). Repeat your Ishta Mantra or any name of the Lord while shampooing. Pray also from the bottom of your heart: “O Lord! Remove the pain of this man. Let him rest in peace. Let him possess good health.” Feel, when you massage, that the energy from the cosmic source, Hiranyagarbha, is flowing continuously through your hands. Some neophytes are afraid their energy will be depleted by massaging another person. This is a serious mistake. The more you give, the more yu will get. You will be in tune with the cosmic energy or the Infinite. This is the divine law.
Bold: Is god fucking lame? Who is a doer? Isn’t it god the holy divine? Now why the fuck you are attached to this chicken who is in pain? This is the fundamental flaw of praying/chanting/ speaking with desire. I strongly condemn this your honour.
A Karma Yogi should be absolutely free from lust, greed, anger and egoism.(That means he will become nonhuman, may be some vegitable, chicken? No my frech fries? Hey why not a pizza?) Even if there are traces of these Doshas, he should try to remove them. (Excuse me sir, can you please tell me or demonstrate me if possible, how to think with no brains in head?) He should not expect any kind of fruits for his actions herein and hereafter. He should not have any desire for name and fame, approbation, thirst for applause, admiration and gratitude. He must have a spotless character. He should try to possess this gradually. He should be humble and free from hatred, jealousy, harshness, etc. He should always speak sweet words(sorry many of them I knew are diabetic, kindly tell me where can I find few to many sugar free words) . How can a proud and jealous man, who expects respect and honor from others, serve others ? He should be absolutely fearless. A timid man is absolutely unfit for Karma Yoga. He is fit to assist his wife in cleaning utensils in the kitchen in the morning and in washing her clothes in the evening.
A Karma Yogi should have large heart(why the fuck does this bastard who claims to be non doer, needs a large fuck kunt to fuck?). He should be free from crookedness, meanness, miserliness and selfishness. He should be absolutely free from greed, anger and egoism.
A Karma Yogi should have an amiable, loving social nature. He should be able to move and mix with everybody without distinction of caste, creed or colour. He should have perfect adaptability, tolerance, sympathy, cosmic love and mercy. He should be able to adjust with the habits and ways of others. He should have an all-embracing and an all-inclusive heart. He should always have a cool and balanced mind. He should have presence of mind also. He should have equal vision. He should rejoice in the welfare of others. A man who is easily irritable and who can easily be offended for trifling things is absolutely unfit for the path of Karma Yoga. He should have all the organs under perfect control. He should lead a very simple life. He should bear insult, disrespect, dishonour, censure, infamy, disgrace, harsh words, heat, cold and the pain of diseases. He should have absolute faith in himself, in God, in scriptures and in the words of hid Guru. If he leads a life of luxury, if he wants everything for himself, how can he share his possessions with others ? He should burn his selfishness to the very root. Let me remind you the words of the Gita: “Restraining and subduing the senses, regarding everything equally, rejoicing in the welfare of all, these alone come to Me.” Such a man becomes a good Karma Yogi and reaches the goal quickly.
When above, stated or defined to the set of people who come to you, my dear god, you will not be served with animals, but few unnamed species to you kingdom. As I have requested above, please demonstrate, how to act, when all your limbs, prick are all cut off? Sounds harsh? When you have killed the very definition of a man, what is the purpose of act? Why should he survive? Why the fuck is he alive? Why read this crap? Why follow it? Why regret it? Why feel guilty about it? If one is ashamed to be born or called as humans, fuck your parents, and fuck you holes, find some other planet, leave us alone.
My dear friends, I have no personal hatred to anyone, my bottom line, is “Make earth a better place to live” don’t create this kind of filth. Think rationally, live a descent life.
I pay my great respect to this body, to humanity, to earth, too all those who makes me alive.
