Question
Respected Sir,
It is quoted  in the Gita that none can ever remain actionless even for a moment and one is responsible for creating the karma.
Sir, at what stage the karma of a new born  manifests?
With kind respects.
T R Vasudevan

Answer
Dear TRV,

Animals cannot do any karma since they do not have self awareness. Similarly, a new born baby cannot do any karma. Only around the age of 2 the child develops EGO, a sense of I. From then on karma will be created.

Thanks for asking this question.

Best wishes,
