32. YOU MUST FACE
the Prarabdha Karmas which have been pre-destined for your present lifetime,
you are bound to face them. You can neither escape from them, nor can
you leave your present body as long as a single Prarabdha Karma remains
in balance. Suppose someone, according to his pre-destined Prarabdha
has been suffering from paralysis, completely bed-ridden even passing
his urine and stool in the bed and barely able to cope with all the
physical torture, even though he is craving for immediate relief through
death, still he will not become free from his burdensome body unless
one and all his Prarabdha Karmas are totally exhausted. His Prarabdha
is the ripened and matured fruit of his own Kriyaman Karmas and they
are not transferable to any one else. Whatever sins he has committed
willingly while laughing he has to suffer them weeping. There is no
other option. Even his parents, doctors, wife, children, relatives,
friends etc. are also helpless in making him free from his Prarabdha.
there are certain factors which can help you to a certain extent in
facing your Prarabdha if you know how to avail of their help.
