Actions accrue infallible results. Action and results are two sides of a coin. Neither can exist without the other.

Actions generated with the emergent I – karta, brings an inseparable result to the very karta. And it is the karma done by the karta which produces the field of experience – bhoga bhumi.

Since results are now clinging to the karta till they fructify, the disengaged conscious sense on death, engages again with another body to process the results and the experience of it.

All experiences of karma phala end in either sukha or dukha, happiness or sorrow. They are either pleasure giving results or sorrowful results. To convert the sorrow into happiness, the conscious being again identifies with the body and initiates another action which sets the ball rolling for yet another cycle of karta-karma-phala-bhumi-sukha/dukha. And repeat.

Two merged rivers travelling as one, the tapestry it travels, journey it undergoes is crafted by the river. It merges in the ocean. The journey is not culminated. It falls to form rivers again.

Similarly actions with I sense are set in motion to keep canvassing its field of experience through various lokas, and the experience of sukha-dukha gets owned by the emergent I- the individual.

This journey is samsara. And death does not end it.

– Deepti Vishwanath
