One may be surprised to see just one cause namely ‘malevolence’ towards others as the karmic cause for heart diseases. In effect it refers to heartless behaviour in any given situation. Where a person is required to express compassion or act in some way that redeems the sufferer, if he fails to do / rise up to the situation, he will be born with a heart that cannot function properly. Ruthless behaviour towards others also comes under malevolence. What one fails to cultivate or promote in a birth will be missing from him in physical terms in the next birth. That is how heart diseases get manifest.  

This series on karmic causes is written with the intention to show the world that many a kind of immoral or unethical behaviour done sometime in a past birth does come back to haunt one in a future birth in the form of disease. This must be taken as a warning bell, so that those reading this would know and be careful in not doing those acts. 

This knowledge gives scope for self-introspection for a person to judge his / her present actions and avoid doing them during rest of present life. In other words, there is enough time left in the current birth itself to make rectification so that the impending karma might come with lesser ramifications. One may ask why a person with such wrongful actions not get back the resultant karma in this birth itself. The answer is that some of them might occur in this birth itself. But where the resultant karma has to come back as a disease, its needs a suitable physical constitution which becomes possible when the person takes up another body (birth)

One can notice a logical correlation between the disease and the karmic cause. Not to be ignored are the ones on eating meat and eggs and harming animals like cows, as all these acts are bound to come back as diseases in a future birth. The basic thread of healthy life is compassion to all and sundry and guarding our thoughts, words and action in any situation.

These ideas have been given by none other than ancient sages and were recorded from time to time by our ancients. There is mention of a text by name Karma Vipaka in olden astrological texts. Though the original texts are lost, the later day texts have recorded some of the features for posterity. And I am happy to do a squirrel’s contribution in spreading whatever little I am able to gather through these write-ups.

Let there be Shanti at all Three levels of Existence.

Hi Jayasree
I can't understand two things - if it is true that one has to suffer in his next birth for his misdeeds in this birth, then -
1. Why should periyar ramasamy nayakkar eat his own stool and die - I believe he suffered for his bad karmas in this birth itself
2. Another example - Actor comedian vivek, he made fun of lemon tied to a lorry, and ultimately his son passed away
Dont you think that one has to account for his bad karma in this birth itself?

The karmic burden we have accumulated is so huge that it will take many births to discharge them. Most of what we experience in a birth is prarabdha karma and only some from what we did in this birth itself. No one knows which of them come back in this birth itself. But as far as diseases are concerned they are mostly prarabdha based. Even genetic studies establish a kind of pre- determined nature in diseases and vulnerabilies in organ systems/ functions. In the instances you have given, it is vasana which made EVR do such a thing. Vivek's son's death is pre- determined and not connected with his acting. Regarding the scene you have mentioned there are many scenes too through which he has spread worthy messages. So these are all complex issues and no human has the power to decipher how karma works.
