Paap - Punya Part - II

Papanubandhi Paap - Demerit Karma that Binds Demerit Karma
Papanubandhi paap means that while a person is undergoing and enduring the effects of his past demerit karma he or she is binding new demerit karma for the next life. Such a person finds joy in making others miserable or making others suffer.

 

Paap Punya

Let's take an example:
If someone hurts you or something bites you (demerit karma effect of past life) and you develop bitter feelings of revenge, you will be binding new accounts (demerit karma) for the next life. When a dog bites you (because of past life demerit karma) and you feel from within that, 'All the dogs should be killed', so then you have created new demerit karma for the next life.

 


Punyanubandhi Paap - Demerit Karma that Binds Merit Karma

Punyanubandhi paap means that even while a person is enduring or experiencing the effects of his past demerit karma, he is binding merit karma for his next life by remaining ethical and moral.
Demerit karma means they encounter obstacles in everything they do for their worldly life. Forget about saving any money in the bank; there is always some kind of a shortage and difficulty in running their daily life. Despite such difficulties, people continue to go to temples for worship and have religious thoughts; that is called 'punyanubandhi paap'.


Paap Punya 2
Let's take an example:
Tony is in seventh grade and he is cheating in exam to get good grades (demerit karma - effect of past life) and his teacher catches him cheating. So his teacher dismisses him from taking the exam. As a result he fails in that exam and spoils his own further progress in education. Now Tony feels regret for his action and does a lot of pratikraman and repentance and binds merit karma for the next life.
