When and why karma got started?

Namaskaram Swamiji,

It is often said, because of karma we take infinite births. Once the karma is over, our soul departs to vaikunth lok. My doubt is regarding the same. Swamiji, when Sriman Narayana starts to create this world, all the atmas are inside him. He distinguishes the atmas as per the karmas and give us different births. My question is when we are already inside him ( at the time of pralay kaal), why is it required to take birth and again attain bhagwan through Moksha?

And regarding the karmas, How we accumulated these many karmas. There will be some starting point, may be infinite years ago, when our karmas were zero. Because, if we were inside bhagwan since the beginning, I don’t think there will be any karma attached to us. Why bhagwan detached us from himself, on the first instant? When and why Karma got started?

Regards

Namaskaram Swamiji,

At the time of Mahapralay, when Brahma’s 100 years are over, all 14 loks get merged in sriman narayana including jivatma. So when the jivatma is already inside parmatma, why is it require to take birth once again and attain Moksha?

Also, i want to know, at the first instance ( may be million years ago), why this process of birth and death got started. Why sriman Narayana created this Maya (Universe), when we were already merged inside him?

The reply is given in en PaNi 422. Hope you heard it.

Swamy, I listened to pani 422. Thank you for the explanation. I would like to know what happens after the Karmas come to an end?

Namaskaram Sawmi!!

Just a doubt: Bhagwan is in Antharyami state in each Aathmas and coexists in the same Sareeram. What happens to Bhagwan in Antharyami form during the transition of Aathma leaving the current Sareeram/Jenma and entering the new Sareeram/Jenma.

Does Bhagwan in Antharyami form  also follow the Aathma during this period? if so, how? because there is no Sareeram for Him to co-exist with this Aathma?

This applies to, particularly, when it takes much more time for the Aathma to enter the new Sareeram/Jenma – or while wandeing in between two Jenmaas.

Srimathey Ramanujaya Namaha!!

Namaskaram Swami,

Swami mentioned in many discourses that Nitya Sooris are not impacted by the Karmas.

In that case, how about Lakshmana or Bagahwat Ramanuja’s karmas during their Boo Lokha life?

As they would not have any past karmas, how their actions/karmas in this Lokha been defined?

Also, they would have earned some karmas as a result of been lived in this Boo Lokha? How they would have gotten rid of these Karmas to reach back Sri Vaikuntha?

Srinivasan.
