Question
Dear Guruji Charan Sparas

Our karma's are predefined, as Dharmas talked.
So how they came in to cycle of death or birth.

Thanks

Answer
Dear Vineet,

Our karma is not predefined. Human beings have free will. We are free to do or not to do an action. If we do action according to Dharma we accumulate good karma, else we accumulate bad karma. The unexhausted karma follows us to the next birth.

Thus our karma is determined ONLY by us and no one else (including God) have no role in determining our karma.

In a cycle wheel, there are many spokes. There is no first spoke. Similarly, in the cycle of birth has no beginning. Therefore, in every birth karma follows from the previous births.

The only way to escape from the cycle of birth-death is to get enlightenment.

Thanks for asking this question. If you need more clarification, pl do ask.

Best Wishes,
