Yes. It is.
WHAT IS KARMA
I would say, every physical or mental action or deed that you perform through out your life is called Karma. You may correlate it to Newton’s law of ‘every action must have a reaction’. When we think, speak or act we initiate a force that will react accordingly.
Your all physical activities like, walking, running, standing, crying, watching, not- watching, inhaling, exhaling, thinking, not-thinking, speaking, not-speaking, eating, not-eating etc…
are performed by all your ten senses, organs; performed as influenced and propelled by the likes and dislikes, attachments and non-attachments and with the co-operation of your mind and intellect are called 'Karma'.
There are certain rules and they are Eternal and Universal.
1) For every Karma done, there will be a an effect (reward or punishment) which can not be wished away by doer. Good karma will get you good effects and bad karma will get you bad consequences.
2) The time at which the the effect will manifest may not be immediate.
3) When the effect will manifest and with what intensity, to what extent of reward or punishment - it lies purely at cosmic intelligence.
Karmas are commonly divided into 3 categories:
(1) SANCHIT KARMA
These are Cumulative Karma also known as “Karmasaya”. It is the sum of our past karmas – all actions (good and bad) from our past life follow through to the next life.
When a man leaves the physical body, he carries with him his astral body of certain Tattvas and the Karmasaya as well, to the mental plane. This Karmasaya is burnt by highest knowledge obtained through Asamprajnata Samadhi.
(2) PRARABDHA KARMA
Each lifetime, a certain portion of the sanchita karma, most suited for the spiritual evolution at the time, is chosen to be worked out, during the course of the lifetime it is called as Prarabdha Karma. So, prarabdha are the part of sanchita karma which are ready to be experienced in the present birth.
(3) KRIYAMAN KARMA / AKAMYA KARMA
These are actions done at the spur of a moment or time in the present birth which instantaneously bears fruit and results in reaction then and there.
Well, let us understand the detailed meaning and the impact of the above three categories of Karma with an example.
Suppose I have 2000 Sanchit karmas (Cumulative Karma) And I decide to eradicate 20 karma. So I take birth with 20 karma this is my Prarabdha. But in this life I forget my aim to eradicate 20 karmas and I die with out eradicating Prarabdha; here in this birth I have made 40 more karma these are Akamya.
So it became as follows,
2000 - 20 + 40 + 20 = 2040 Sanchit karmas
The main purpose of having a human body is to acquire MOKSHA i.e liberation from the cycle of birth and death and secure union with God from whom you are separated. That is the only final target and ultimate goal of human life it can be achieved by burning all your Sanchit karmas.
About Karmic Bond
Karma is formed when you significantly infringe another’s province, creating an energy imbalance that then seeks resolution. Usually a karmic debt is repaid in kind. For example, if John kills Bob, Bob will kill John or John will save the life of Bob in a subsequent lifetime.
