Nowadays and for the last several decades, the word Karma has been associated with fate. Many people mistakenly think that the only thing determined by their Karma is what the future holds in store for them. In actuality, Karma is a more specific term in Vedic Cosmology than it’s modern, more generalized use would have us believe.
4 Type’s of Karma’s are:
1. Sanchit – past life karma
According to the Vedic astrology, there are four types of karma which are collectively known as the Sanchit Karma. It is believed that this type of karma is accumulated over many lifetimes and is responsible for an individual’s current situation in life. The four karmas are as follows:
1.Jati Karma: This is the karma that determines an individual’s caste or social status in life. It is determined by the actions of previous lives and is said to be accountable for an individual’s position in society.
2.Grihya Karma: This karma pertains to an individual’s obligations and duties in life. It includes both good and bad deeds that must be performed in order to maintain the balance of dharma in the world.
3.Sanchit Karma: As mentioned before, this karma is accumulation of all the good and bad actions from all previous lives. It is said to be responsible for an individual’s destiny and ultimately decides their fate in this life.
4.Prarabdha Karma: This is the portion of Sanchit Karma that is responsible for determining the events of an individual’s current life. It includes both positive and negative experiences that an individual has to go through in order to learn lessons and grow spiritually.
2. Prarabhda – our lifetime’s karma and desires
As the name suggests, prarabdha karma is the result of our past actions. It is the portion of our lifetime’s karma that is determined by our actions in previous lifetimes. This includes both our positive and negative actions, as well as our desires.
While we have no control over our prarabdha karma, we can influence our future karma by how we act in this lifetime. Our current actions will determine what karmic lessons we need to learn in future lifetimes. Therefore, it is important to be mindful of our actions and desires, so that we can create positive karma for ourselves.
3. Agami – the future probable effects that our present actions and thoughts will have on subsequent lives
There are four types of karma in Vedic astrology, and they are sanchita, prarabdha, agami, and kriyamana. Each type of karma corresponds to a different area of our lives.
Sanchita karma is the accumulated karma from our past lives. This is the sum total of all the good and bad deeds we have done in our previous lifetimes. It is this karma that decides our destiny in this lifetime.
Prarabdha karma is the portion of our accumulated karma that is ‘ripe’ and ready to be experienced in this lifetime. This is the destiny that we are currently manifesting in our lives.
Agami karma is the future probable effects that our present actions and thoughts will have on subsequent lives. In other words, it is the karma we are creating in this lifetime that will determine our destiny in future lifetimes.
Kriyamana karma is the actions we take and thoughts we think in this lifetime that will shape our destiny in future lifetimes. Therefore, it is important to be mindful of our actions and thoughts, as they will create positive or negative consequences for us down the road.
4. Kriyamana – Ishvara, or God’s perfect and encompassing motivational forces for an individual through graces
Kriyamana karma, also called prarabdha karma, is the subset of an individual’s total karma that is most directly responsible for their current life circumstances. This type of karma includes both the positive and negative consequences of an individual’s past actions, as well as the results of any unfinished business from previous lifetimes.
While an individual has some degree of control over their own kriyamana karma through their current choices and actions, it is ultimately Ishvara – or God – who determines how this karma will manifest in a person’s life. This is because Ishvara is the ultimate source of all motivation and grace.
There are four main types of kriyamana karma: sanchita, agamin, prarabdha, and kriyamana. Sanchita karma is the sum total of all an individual’s past actions, both good and bad. Agamin karma refers to the consequences of future actions that have not yet been taken. Prarabdha karma is the subset of sanchita karma that is most directly responsible for an individual’s current life circumstances. And finally, kriyamana karma is the result of any unfinished business from previous lifetimes.
While it may seem daunting at first, understanding the role that kriyamana karma plays in our lives can actually be empowering. By taking responsibility for our past actions and making conscious choices in the present moment,
In Vedic astrology, there are four types of karma that can have an impact on an individual’s life. To improve your karma, it is important to understand what these types of karma are and how they can affect your life.
The four karmas of Vedic astrology are often described as the ‘law of karma.’ This law states that every action has a corresponding reaction, and that these reactions can either be positive or negative. According to this belief system, our actions in this life will determine our fate in future lives. If we do good deeds, we will be reborn into a higher caste, and if we do bad deeds, we will be reborn into a lower caste. While some people may see this as a way to keep people in their place, others see it as a way of ensuring that everyone gets what they deserve. Either way, the four karmas are an important part of Vedic astrology and should be taken into consideration when making any decisions.
