14. YOU GET ONLY
THAT MUCH WHICH IS DESTINED TO YOU
Prarabdha of this birth is destined just appropriately and proportionately
equal to your efforts (Kriyaman Karmas) of your past births; and strictly
according to this Prarabdha you get your birth in a particular specific
country, caste, creed, and race. God is not whimsical to throw you anywhere
without any reason. Your birth in any caste or creed or race or in the
womb of a particular mother is not accidental but is strictly according
to your deeds in your past births which are now matured and ripened
as Prarabdha as stipulated in the law of Karma. If perhaps you are consulted
and given a choice before your new birth, you would naturally choose
to take birth in the family of Rockfeller in America or in Birla family
in India where immediately on
taking your birth you would be the owner of so many cars and bungalows
and tremendous wealth and fortune. Likewise everybody would like to
have a similar choice including the persons who were rascals and rogues
in their past births and then you can imagine the confusion and chaotic
condition of the world.
according to your quantum of Prarabdha you get appropriate caste, creed,
race and sex, appropriate body, appropriate parents, husband, wife,
children, relatives, neighbours, boss, business, service, wealth, health
and all such other environments in the present birth and during this
present life span you have compulsorily to enjoy, suffer and exhaust
all your Prarabdha according to your debits
and credits with them incurred by you during your past births; and as
soon as these debits and credits are cleared and all your obligations
are fulfilled and your accounts are cleared-closed with them, your obligatory
ties are unglued and they will automatically be separated.
get only that much which is destined in your Prarabdha and nothing more
A king, though
he is extremely pleased with his servant, cannot promote him to a very
high post with a fat salary as it is not in his Prarabdha. Even though
it would rain for all the 24 hours all the year round, the tree of Palash
will bear only three leaves and not more.
season all the trees beget fresh leaves but the tree of Kerda does not
get any leaves. For that, spring is not responsible. During daytime
all the creatures
are able to see in the sunlight but the owls cannot see anything at
all because it is so destined in their Prarabdha. For this the sun cannot
be blamed. In the monsoon it rains equally everywhere without any favouritism
to anybody but the poor bird known as CHATAK hardly gets a few drops
of water - in his gaping mouth during the whole monsoon season because
it is so destined in his luck and the monsoon is helpless. Destiny (Prarabdha)
is irrevocable and nobody can wipe it out or erase it.
It is a common
belief amongst us that on the sixth day of the birth of a child, the
Goddess of Destiny named Vl,DHZ;TA comes at night to chart the life
course of the
new-born child and writes the destiny as to what is going to happen
during the whole life of that child on the white, yellow, and red papers
which we keep arranged for her to write. Nobody can see this goddess
and read what she has written. But anyhow in any case even if the belief
is correct. the Goddess Vidhata, appointed for doing this job, cannot
favour anybody by adding or subtra,cting or manipulating any item from
the Prarabdha that is destined strictly according to his previous Kriyam-an
Karmas done by him in his previous births which have now matured and
ripened as Prarabdha to be enjoyed or suffered during his present birth.
She cannot be bribed. There is no corruption, bribery or favouritism
in the law of Karma under the Realm of God.
You are eligible
and entitled to get only that much which is specifically destined in
your Prarabdha. All your efforts will be futile and will fall flat even
if you run and
run day and night becoming crazy and hankering for attracting and accumulating
money and wealth more than what is destined in your luck, fate (Prarabdha).
Only running here and there without Prarabdha will not fetch more wealth.
At the same time be sure that whatever wealth is destined, you are definitely
going to get it not because of your running but in spite of your running.
A dog is running helter skelter from one street to another for the whole
day, and yet he does not become wealthy only because of his running.
On the contrary only because of his more running for bread and sex door
to door and street to street in crazy madness he is being beaten many
a time. The dog runs after bread and sex with his four legs while a
person is also found running with the four wheels of his car in restless
activity. It makes no difference between animals and human beings if
both of them are running
madly after only bread and sex.
point, the gist of this observation, is that your Prarabdha in your
present birth is the direct effect and specifically based and shaped
on the Kriyaman Karmas
of your past births. Even if you aspire and strenuously strive you cannot
get anything more than what is destined in your Prarabdha under any
