Karma Theory: A Reflection on the Soul's Journey and the Power of Our Actions


Peace and Light all, this week I took a deep dive into Karma Theory with my Jyotish Guru, Sanjay Rath, and I have to say, it was an eye-opening experience. As I listened to his lecture, I found myself not only learning about the complex workings of karma but also reflecting on my own actions and the sacred responsibility we all hold in purifying our souls through the choices we make. Today, I wish to share the insights that illuminated my path and

explore how we can apply this ancient wisdom to our daily lives, empowering ourselves and others to walk the path towards moksha, the ultimate liberation.

Karma Theory

At the core of Karma Theory lies a profound truth: our lives are a sacred contract between ourselves, the Divine Creator (our highest being), and time itself. Each soul enters this world carrying a spiritual bank account, carrying with both negative and positive karma accumulated from past lives, which must be addressed and resolved during our current incarnation. The specific karmas we are destined to face and the manner in which we confront them are determined by a complex interplay of factors, revealed through the planetary placements in our Rasi (D1), Navamsha (D9), and Shashtiamsha (D60) charts.

These karmic imprints fall into three distinct categories:

Sanchita Karma, the sum total of our accumulated karma from all previous lifetimes.

Prarabdha Karma, the portion of our Sanchita Karma that manifests as experiences in our current life.

Kriyamana Karma, the fresh karma we generate through our actions and choices in this present incarnation.

The interplay of these karmic forces shapes the fabric of our lives, with our physical actions (Saririka Karma) and mental patterns (Manasa Karma) coming together to create the karma of our soul (Vachika Karma).

I know, it can all seem a bit overwhelming, especially when you consider the idea of fate and the seemingly endless cycle of karma. However, I invite you to see this not as a burden, but as an opportunity for divine growth and transformation. By understanding the laws that govern our existence, we empower ourselves to take conscious and cosmic control of our lives and steer our souls in a positive direction. Although it's not always easy, by holding ourselves accountable for our thoughts and actions, we begin to reshape our karmic landscape and cultivate a brighter future for ourselves and all those whose lives we touch.

In this journey towards karmic balance and spiritual growth, one of the most powerful tools we have for clearing out negative karma is silence. Guruji Sanjay Rath teaches that sound is the force that brought everything into existence, so it makes sense that silence can help us undo the karmic knots that bind us. As many of our wise elders and gurus have taught us, we have learned that it is through the practice of meditation—the stilling of our minds, bodies, and souls—that we can truly begin to clear our karmic accounts and pave the way for liberation.

Learning about Karma Theory has made me more aware of my own thoughts and actions and the responsibility I have to shape my own destiny and contributing to the collective journey of our souls. I want to invite all of you to join me on this journey of self-reflection and conscious living. By being mindful of the choices we make and the thoughts we entertain, we can start to create positive change in our own lives and the lives of those around us.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope it's given you some food for thought. Remember, you have the power to create change, and it all starts with being aware of the contracts you've signed and the choices you make.
