Karma loka is the plane of action and here the
exploration of the third Chakra
starts. The only desire which remains true for all times and
places is the desire for fulfillment. All other desires are
manifestations of that one desire, the desire for completion,
for self-realisation. On whatever level the player vibrates,
on that level does he seek fulfillment.
In the first and second chakras the desire was
manifested as the pursuit of money and sex. In the third chakra
the dominant concern becomes identification of the ego, and
achievement of power. The player becomes conscious of social
and political influences on the development of his personality.
The Ego comes into action.
According to the "Bhagavad Gita"
[the famous sacred Hindu scripture] the law of karma is the
law of cause and effect. From time immemorial the Jeeva (the
individual self or Jiva) or player has been acting in the
material world and enjoyed or suffered the reactions of his
own actions. His actions or karma bring about his incarnation
from one material body to another.
Karma is the cause of the cycle of birth and
rebirth. And karma alone can win liberation from this cycle,
creating both bondage and liberation.
Basically, each individual has karmic responsibilities for his
own self, for his visible body, and his invisible being. There are karmas towards
the body and towards consciousness. The body is the world it contains all the
elements of gross manifestation. So karmas towards the body are also towards the
whole world. Consciousness is the essence of the world and the karmas towards
consciousness also cover the whole world.
Karma yoga is the
yoga of selfless action. Karma covers all acts done by the
individual from birth to death. An individual who performs
karma with attachments uses any means which serve his purpose
and in his selfishness causes harm to others. One who is not
attached to his actions and performs actions because they
are unavoidable, performs karmas with a disinterested interest
and does not adopt wrong means. But karma performed by right
means do not harm anybody and are in accordance with the law
