ved teaches us that anything that happens in this
universe has a genesis. The genesis
of a event tells us why the event happened as it did. The genesis of anything
happening at a moment in time in a current existence is usually in the long
past. The long past could stretch over many life times of a creation who
is experiencing an event in the current time. The event usually connects a whole
bunch of creations as all creations co-exist at all times. The genesis of a
current event is usually the karma-phal
(fruits of karma) of the past karma performed
by a creation. The genesis of a current event could also lie in some accidental
or intentional curse on a creation by another creation. Thus, a current event is
not because of the current karma. It is the karma-phal of one's
past karma stretching over may life times. Many lives could be from a
mortal life of up to around 100 years for a human in
kali-yug to the shortest kali-yug of 432,000 years to a
brahmaa-dev's day of 4.32 billion years or a brahmaa-dev's or a 311 trillion
years of a brahmaa-dev's life duration.
The event being currently experienced is also in the similar
situation of its happening in the past. .This means the current event happens as
in the past
- in the similar environment and place,
- in similar mode with similar methodology,
- for similar purpose and
- with similar means
- that the karma was performed by the creation in its past history.
This means a current event is the karma-phal which is
exactly as one had performed in the past and has the same effect that others had
from the karma. The karma-phal will be enjoyable if the karma effect
was enjoyable. The karma-phal would be painful if the karma effect
was painful to others. Thus, karma-phal one experiences is just like the cliché
or sayings all of us have heard:
- "you get what you dish out"' or
- "you pay for it now or later" or
- "what goes around comes around" or
- "do unto others what you wish other to do to you".
karma-phal also follows Newton's
3rd Law: "Every action (karma) has
equal and opposite reaction (karma-phal)".
So karma-phal will be all one dished out and of equal
value. Sometimes karma-phal may also include compounded interest charge
if interest charge was included in the original karma.
The above karma-phal applies to all manifestations of brhmah
from sagun-brhmah to all devo
and devio to mankind to animals to
plant life to the smallest organism imaginable and existing.
That means karma-phal has also to be partaken and
experienced by vishnu-dev who is the first three manifestations of brhmah.
The other two first manifestations of brhmah are brahmaa-dev and shiv-dev.
The entire creation is created, sustained and cyclically and repeatedly
dissolved back into brahmaa-dev or brhmah by this trii-murti
(trinity) of brahmaa-vishnu-shiv.
This trii-murti exists in unity only. None of the three of the trii-murti
can exist by himself. None of the three trii-murti can operate
without the other two.
So now we have learned that vishnu-dev's
das-avataar (ten incarnations) must be the resulting karma-phal of vishnu-dev's
karma in the prior times to each of the avataar occurring.
In the next part of
this serial.....om namah brhmah.... may we be blessed by bhagvaan....
to learn about what caused the one of trii-murti creation.....
as mighty and immortal being as vishnu-dev... to manifest himself as a
ordinary mortal creation...........om shanti shaanti shaanti....om tat sat......
