Such an inspiring talk. Well said, thanks! We are defined by how we choose to live our lives TODAY.
Thank you for your feedback. We are entangled to the outer prison of this Karmic existence by the inner prison of our own delusions and illusions. We each possess the innate capability to break free into the ultimate freedom of Nirvana in the here and now.
Why would we pray for our loved ones to enter another karmic life? Would it not be better to pray for them to transcend all karmic lives?
Why are prayers necessary when the intention is true?
With respect to the past and the future, if it is said that we learn from the past to prevent the same mistakes in the future and to have a better future, then we would have bound ourselves to the physical karmic life because we do not live in the present. The cycle then continues and transcendence above the circle of the physical life cannot occur. What is the present if it is utilized to focus on the past and the future?
Indeed we ultimately pray for our love ones to transcend the Karmic circle. During the 49 days transitional period after physical death, we may be of aid to our love ones through our prayers and positive intentions. The prayers help the newly deceased to let go of past attachments and journey smoothly onward into their new Karmic existence and aid to reinforce the need to transcend the cycle of birth and death. Recognizing the interconnection among the past, present, and future is essential, so that we no longer create Karmic consequences that bind us to the Karmic cycle of birth, decline, death, and repeat.
Thank you for your attention to help me understanding about Karma which I kept for so long without answering the questions.... Wishing you always get anything which you want..."I am determined to not let any life circumstances hinder my resolve to reach my spiritual destination: Nirvana."
It was my pleasure. I wish you all the best in your own quest for Nirvana.
