THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION
Past actions decided present life situations. Present actions will decide future life situations.Whatever situation we face in this birth has a connection with our past birth and is based on our past birth karma (deeds). To all those whom we gave happiness or pain and all those who gave us happiness or pain in any past birth, have come to our life in some or the other way to receive or give happiness and pain (so as to settle their account). If we accept the situation, favorable or unfavorable, with a smile and without grudge or attachment then our past deeds gets satisfied and the account gets nullified. But if we do not accept life situations as they are, especially the painful ones and grumble, then the past deeds remain unsettled and they will try to come again and again to our life by way of another situation till we accept the result of these past deeds with folded hands.
The past account of karma is classified into Prarabdh Karmas and Sanchit Karmas. Prarabdh Karmas are those whose results have been destined to come to us in this birth itself (we call it fate/destiny) and Sanchit Karmas are the accumulated karmas in fixed deposit whose results will come in future births.
The best way to cut the cycle of this ongoing karma business is to accept life situations as they are and perform actions as mere duties without ego, pride, jealousy, revenge or expectations.

THE JOY OF SEEING OTHERS JOY IS A BIGGER JOY THAN OUR OWN JOY
