What is karma and how to change it
Here is an example to understand karma. This is a pretty elementary
model, but gives the general idea of karma:
A deer is standing in the woods. In his past life the deer was a man who
shot and killed an animal. He wears a sign that says "Shoot Me." A
hunter is walking by and sees the sign. He shoots the deer, and goes
over and picks up the "Shoot Me" sign and puts it on himself.
He wears this sign the rest of his life. In a few years the hunter
dies. When his soul leaves his body, the subtle material body (false
ego, etc. accompanies it) and takes along with it the "Shoot Me" sign.
The subtle body and soul take on the gross material body of a deer. The
new deer now wears the "Shoot Me" sign. Along comes a hunter and shoots
the deer. He goes over and picks up the "Shoot Me" sign and puts it on
And so on.
The point is: it was the deer's karma to get shot. Nevertheless, the
hunter is still incurring karma for killing the deer.
The way to break the endless material cycle of suffering is to meditate/chant the names of the Lord from our recommended mantras. . That is part of the effectiveness of Mantra Meditation, changing a person's karma.
