Action(Karma) performed by Jiva Sanchit Prarabdha and Agami . can be of three types
These three type of Karmas of very good example of Rice Farming. can be explained by way
All those good and bad past actions performed by Jiva’s in past many life are called sanchit karmas. and which has not yet fructified
After Rice Cultivation when the Rice are ready for harvesting. We harvest it. Clean it. And store it in granary. The Rice stored in granary can be compared with sanchit karmas .
Small portion of sanchit karmas which have ripened and are ready to be experienced a by Jiva are called prarabdha karmas.
Small portion of that stored rice that has been removed from storage, husked, and readied for cooking and eating can be compared with prarabdha Karmas.
Our that actions which we are performing in present and which are yet to become sanchit karmas are called agami karmas.
Rice which are being planted in the field to produce a future crop Can be compared with Agami Karmas
Prarabdha karmas can be divided into three types fixed, fixed-unfixed, and unfixed.
Fixed karmas are those which are intense and are non changeable and we have to experience it despite our all effort to avoid them.

Fixed – unfixed karmas are those which are less intense and are changeable by way of intense effort.
was achieved by intense effort. Fixed-unfixed karmas situation- We must have faced situation in life when big success
are those which by way of small effort. Unfixed karmas can be easily altered. Unfixed karmas Situation- Many a times We must have faced a situation in life where big success was achieved
Can we now safely assume that in fixed and unfixed karmas situation we should sit idle and should not put any effort.
The law of karma does not preaches idleness The law says we should perform all our actions putting 100% effort with honesty and hard work
Karmas. because result of our action will be decided on the basis of fixed fixed-unfixed and unfixed
It’s a blessing of God, that we do not have the power to know which karmas are fixed fixed-unfixed and unfixed
If god would have given this power to us then we would have acted intensly only in case of fixed-unfixed karmas and in other situation we would have been idle.

These vasanas forms a basis for deciding new life for jiva

When did I grow less by dying I shall die out of man and shall become an angel!!”
Christ Himself has, if not directly, at least indirectly,proclaimed the Doctrine of Reincarnation when He told His disciples “ John, The Baptist, was Elijah”
then we have to agree If we do not agree to Doctrine of Reincarnation The worldly matters operates in very haphazard way and no one is there to control it
In case we do not agree to the existence of Doctrine of Reincarnation then we have to conclude: “ If there exist a God, then he is very cruel as those persons whose actions are good in this birth are suffering
and those engaged in bad actions are enjoying life”
