The Law of Karma: Paap – Punya: Part - I

Jai Satchitanand Friends,
Would you like to know more about what karmas are? How do we bind karmas? And how we become free from them? Let's read what the world's greatest scientist "Dada" has to say on this.Paap -punya

Paap (Demerit or Bad Karma) - Punya (Merit or Good Karma)
In India, children are taught about paap (bad deeds, demerit karma) and punya (good deeds, merit karma), from a very young age. If a child kills an insect, the mother will slap his hand and let him know in a stern voice, "You cannot kill, youwill bind bad karma." From a very young age a child is told not to do bad deeds, and that bad deeds create bad karma.
  
Questioner : What is 'paap' (demerit karma) and what is 'punya' (merit karma)?

You bind demerit karma by hurting or causing miseries to others, because there is God in every creature, whether visible or invisible. Every creature in this world is a form of God. Inflicting harm on any living being, binds demerit karma and giving happiness to any living being binds merit karma.

Types of Merit and Demerit Karma

If you give peace and happiness to someone, then you will create an influx of atoms of merit karma and if you make someone unhappy, you will attract atoms of demerit karma. When things go according to your wishes, it is because of your merit karma and if things go against your wishes, it is because of your demerit karma.To give charity, to be benevolent towards others, to oblige others, to care for others, are all relative religions, with which you bind punya.To insult or hurt others, to physically attack people, to steal from them, all such acts will bind paap.

Paap -punya -1

There are two kinds of demerit karma (paap):
Papanubandhi paap - one is binding new bad karmas whilst experiencing the effects of past bad karma.
And 
Punyanubandhi paap - one is binding new good karmas whilst experiencing the effects of past bad karma.
There are also two kinds of merit karma (punya):
Papanubandhi punya - one is binding new bad karmas whilst experiencing the effects of past good karmas.
And
Punyanubandhi punya - one is binding new good karmas whilst experiencing the effects of past credit karmas.
