Karma law is one of the laws of the universe. But there are always ambiguities about the laws of the universe. In this article we will answer the most common questions about karma. Of course, we have explained about Karma, the types of it, and its effects in our lives.
I recommend you read this article for more information: “Get familiar with karma in Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Persian Literature.” In the following, we will answer 3 common questions about this law.
I save everyone but they never save me
Karma says you get the result of what you do (whether good or bad). But some say: “We save everyone but they never save us” Certainly these people are right. Because they describe their life experience. But can it be concluded that Karma is wrong? I tell you surely that Karma law does not make a mistake
So what is the problem? The problem is that you expect to get your answer from the person you help. But you need to know that when you do a good job, the good karma that is produced from doing that job comes into the world and the world returns it to you. In fact, you give goodness to the world and this is the world that returns your goodness to you.
Ensure that the world returns the result of your good work in the best time and place. Maybe today, because of the good work you have done, you have produced a good karma and sent it to the world, but at a different time and place you will get the result. You may not even realize the good thing that has happened to you is your good work answer. Even Sa’di Shirazi has referred to this concept.
“You toss charity in the Tigris, and God shall return it in the desert.”
Why do bad people have a good life?
Many of us look at the other’s lives and judge Karma law. For example, we see someone who oppresses others but has a good life so we conclude that there is no karma law or it does not work properly. But again, you make a mistake. For explaining the reason for this claim, we should remind 2 points.
The first point is that you do not know the inside of the other’s lives. One day Moses asked God, “Why don’t you torture Pharaoh for the wrongdoing? God replied, “Pharaoh gives food to my servants generously in his palace every day.” So when we do not know everything about the other’s lives, we cannot judge whether Karma’s law is right about him or not.
The second point is that, as we have pointed out, Karma gives the right answer in a proper time and place in a decent manner. It was said in the anecdotes that a rich person had many sheep. When he wanted to sell their milk, he mixed the milk with water. Shepherd always said don’t do this. But the rich man believed that nobody would understand it. Until one day the flood took his all money. The rich man was surprised to find that all his assets were lost in the flood. Suddenly, the shepherd said to him: “All those waters that you added to the milk were gathered together and took all your assets at once.
Sometimes karma law brings all the results of our work together and gives us the answer at once.
Do we get answer in accordance to our good and bad works as to karma?
The answer that the universe gives you through Karma is in accordance with your created good or bad effects in the other’s lives. Let’s take an example to make it clearer. For example, you help someone with a good intention and give him about ۱۰ Million Rial. It is a mistake to think that Karma returns the same amount to you. For example, if this help can solve a big problem, it’s likely that you’ll get bigger answers. This answer can be either material or immaterial.
Perhaps someone can take a toy from a child one day. Although this does not seem to be a bad thing, but it will have bad effects on that child’s life. So karma causes the universe to give you an answer which is in accordance with your created bad effects on that child’s life.
In the end, we recommend you to love and do good things for the others. Be sure you will get your good answer in a proper place.
