3. DISTINCT FEATURES
OF THE LAW OF KARMA
main and distinct features and the important characteristics and criteria
of the Law of Karma are as under:
law is Eternal:
It has come into force with effect from the date on which the sun started
rising in the east since the inception of the universe and it will remain
in force till the end of
the universe, the date on which the sun will stop rising in the sky.
(These dates are not known and will never be known to anybody.)
law is Universal:
It is applicable to one and all the persons and creatures in all the
countries in the world and the entire universe.Not that it is applicable
only to Indians and that too only to Hindus because it was repeated
and recited by Lord Krishna in Bhagwad Geeta on the battle field of
Kurukshetra in India. It is applicable to all people from the human
races, castes and creeds in the whole world.
law is Applicable:
In all the generations and eras of earthly cycles, Satyug, Treta, Dwapar
and Kaliyug and in all the centuries - past,present and future.
law is Totally Perfect:
There has not been a single amendment in the law up-till now since time
immemorial and there is not going to be a single amendment in the law
till the end of the
entire universe. There is not a single 'proviso' in the law. There is
no such mention or words like 'Provided that' or 'Not withstanding anything
contained in the Act' etc.
is Not a Single Exception:
In this law of Karma, nobody can escape the canons of this law. Even
the father of Lord Rama (incarnation of the omnipotent, omnipresent,
omniscient God) could not
escape his destined death due to the forced separation of his son Rama.
Shri Rama also in due respect to this law, did not interfere by giving
extension of life even to his own father Dasratha at least for fourteen
years till his return from exile. The omnipotent formless (NIRAKAR)
God, once incarnated in the human form (SAKAR) as Rama, he too had to
humbly respect and obey the Law of Karma and he did not show any favouritism
or partiality to anybody,even to his own father.

of this law is beyond manipulation, intervention or corruptibility.
doer will definitely be punished for his wrong deeds. Nobody can escape
the penal provisions of this law. There is no escapement and no exception
allowed in its application. Similarly a pious man performing good actions
will definitely be rewarded for his good deeds. Each and every good
or bad action will have equal and appropriate reaction and will invariably
rebound on the doer attracting just reward or punishment.
