Any actions by the body, by the speech, or just at the level of mind are all Karma. So, Karma happens at all three levels – Body, speech and mind. Almost every moment, we are creating new Karma for ourselves, if not by the body, then by the speech; and if not by the speech, then by the mind. All these Karma cause the bondages of fruits for which we continue to take birth in the next lives. Anything happening in current life unwantedly is the consequences of our previous Karma. Therefore, wise are those who neither panic nor get overjoyed for any good or bad unexpected consequences in Life. These consequences are the only temporary experiences of sorrow and happiness whereas the bliss of the Almighty is beyond the consequences of any karma. Karma leads to the cycle of life and death. Therefore true spiritual seekers perform righteous Karma only as a duty to bring balance in this creation and do not get too attached to its outcomes. Rather they devote time in developing devotion for Sadguru through Seva, Saadhna and Satsang as only when the devotion for the Sadguru blossoms, the conscious technique of devotion for the Almighty is revealed to the soul by the able Sadguru.
These 21 days of chanting therapy is dedicated to the birth anniversary celebration of his holiness Sant Pravar Sri Vigyandeo ji Maharaj- The divine message for today is – “Karma becomes dharma, when we gain an ability to listen to our soul!”
Sant Pravar Shri Vigyan Dev Ji Maharaj says, once a person reaches a level in his meditation state where he realizes who he really is and what is the purpose of this human life, then his every action is performed in the light of righteousness. After reaching such a state, he no more lives his life for his materialistic gain but always work towards the betterment of society. His entire life becomes an example of good virtues.
