Life credits you with best and worst things based on your
karma. It’s cent percent true. Dharma is just a perception to follow life in
routine adhering to it. In primitive days, people were innocent and unaware so
the Rishis bound science with Dharma and propagated it, so that people follow
it religiously. An unknown fear gripped the people that if they don’t follow
the way it is advised, instances may go wrong, and the people came under the
influence of dharma so much that they started neglecting karma. Turn your eyes
around, you will see that more and more people are thronging to religious
places and in spite of been well-educated, they believe in typical
superstitions and blind faith and are always on the run to secure life and
future. But about karma, it is standing at zero.

See…people don’t get offended…it’s my sole view and I am a
karmic person and solely believes on karma. People may question me …what about
Dharma? I can’t deny that I don’t follow the principles of Dharma…I do follow
but in a very practical way…rather you can say…I am carrying the family
traditions that is going on in my family so that the traditions are been
carried from one generation to another and been a family person, I need to
follow and hand over to my coming generations…but I don’t add something flimsy
to it nor do I propagate blind faiths.

I follow karma religiously and am a firm believer that as
you sow, so you reap. It’s the bare truth of life and further I believe that if
you do good things, it will boomerang to you, so keep on doing good deeds,
later or earlier you will receive the same. Many times we are offended that in
spite of doing or thinking nice of all, why am I at receiving end with so many
hurdles in life. Actually, life is a part and parcel of good and bitter days
but we count only the hardships, never do we count our blessings…life will be
monotonous if all days are the same. The weather and life are the same, it
keeps on changing and to enjoy pleasure, we need to go through pain.

A mother is blessed with a bundle of joy after undergoing bone
wracking pain…so is the life…we human are so selfish that we count the pain but
never the pleasure.

My experience and my perspectives say that believe in Dharma
but keep on increasing your karmic angle and you will find distinct change in
yourself and your life ahead. My life isn’t free with hurdles but I never blame
God and I accept the hurdles in the same way as blessings and I am at ease.

I have seen people watering Tulsi plants, worshipping
deities for long hours, abstaining from non-veg foods on few specific days,
wearing specific color on specific days of week but peeping inside their life
left me uncomfortable. The lunch is not provided fresh or on time to school
going children, the husband and in-laws don’t get breakfast and lunch on time,
the whole house looks like a garbage bin, clothes and dirt littered around and
the superior lady of the house is busy in welcoming the imaginary god…what is
it…which Dharma says to follow such routine and offend all…I sum up in one line…it
is all hypocrisy and show off and the one following is not going to gain.

In life, first comes the karma and the karma says to fulfil your
duties first and that too with due respect and love, then only you are going to
flourish in life.

It is good to water Tulsi plants, it is good for the environment
and it can be watered in later part of the day but not at the cost of family
and children. They need to be attended first.

My life is the best example of Karma and I have gained a lot
in my life due to indulgence in Karma.

From childhood days, I am quite helpful and try to help
people around at the maximum, even I have maximum attributes of sharing…I am
not trying to be extravagant to show myself, the people who know me can never deny this fact.

And, yes, I have received the efforts and help of people
around and well-wishers when I was surrounded by tough situations. At times,
the situations were so tense that I felt like I would succumb alone. It is the
grace of unknown power on me that someone or the other would be around and
things moved off comfortably without disturbing my life.
There are times that the people whom you have helped will
ignore you and even by mistake, they won’t sniff close to you. It gives pain on
those instances, but believe me, ignore them. Some other person will stand by
you…so you won’t be left unattended, that’s the greatness of your karma.

Bind yourself with Dharma to maintain good and healthy
hygiene and cleanliness around and indulge in improving your deeds and never
ever give up…Keep on doing…we are human and we are bound to err…but learn from your
errors and improve yourself.
Give a glass of water to thirsty people, spare your garments
for the scarce clothed population, donate food to hungry and donate money to

There is no heaven or hell in space…it is here on earth and
we are awarded with it in our lifetime and the day the debits and credits of
life is equal, life halts.

This is my way of life…simple and expressive…no superstition…no
show offs and I do get rewarded often owing my karma.
