Questioner: Does karma apply to human
Dadashri: Human beings do nothing but bind
karma, constantly. The human ego is such that even though it
does not eat, drink, or conduct any actions in the worldly life, it
still maintains a notion of doership, which is why it binds karma.
Karma is bound through the ego that says, "I am doing it." Is it
not a wonder that happens? It can be proven that the ego does not
eat, drink, or do anything else. It can also be proven that in
spite of not doing anything, it binds karmas. Only humans bind
Questioner: Because of the body, one has to eat
and drink, but despite this, is it possible that one is not the
doer of karma?
Dadashri: One cannot see karma
being bound. People in general think of karma as something that is
visible to the eye. They may see someone hurt another person and
assume that, that is how the person charges karma. Is that not what
Questioner: Yes, they say it as
they see it.
Dadashri: People believe that
karma is the external activities people do like eating, sleeping,
hitting someone etc.People label all actions as karma. But in
reality the activity they see is really the fruit of karma and not
the actual karma itself. Whenever karma is bound, there
is internal suffering. What does a child do when you give him
bitter medicine? He makes a face! And when you give him medicine
that is sweet, he will like it. When people do raag-dwesh
(attachment- abhorrence) they are planting causes that give rise to
new karma. You will have to experience karma that you like and also
the ones you dislike. The ones you do not like will leave you
hurting while those you like will leave you happy. The causes that
were created in your past life bring fruits to you, in this
Quotes by Param Pujya Dadashri: 1) Acting
egotistically as 'I am this body', with no consciousness of the
self, is karma. But anything done 'dramatically', as the
Knower-Seer, while remaining as the Self, is not karma.
2) Karmic bondage is built on egoism. Other than egoism,
binding karma is not dependent on any other action. I-ness (vikalp)
and my-ness (sankalp) are based on egoism and that is karmic
bondage. In whatever the ego exists, that is its bondage.
