kartha karma kriya meaning
Kartha is the Doer of Kriya or action and the result accumulated is in the form of Karma or the result of your actions.
The Sanskrit language has a rich history and culture with many philosophical concepts that are still relevant today. One such concept is Kartha Karma, which can be roughly translated as “the law of cause and effect”. In the philosophy of Kartha Karma, actions create effects that can be seen in the present or future.
Karma is the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, while karma (action) refers to both the physical and mental actions of an individual. To understand karma is we must first understand that our thoughts, words, and actions are all intertwined.
The philosophy behind Karma is that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Karma means “action”, it can be interpreted as “work” or “task.” It is the sum of a person’s actions in this life and previous lives; good deeds result in positive karma while bad deeds result in negative karma.
Good Kriya means “cleansing” or “purification”. It includes a range of yogic exercises, including breathwork and following Dharma.
The philosophy behind these tools is that the body is made up of five koshas (coverings) – annamaya, pranamaya, manomaya, vijnanamaya and anandamaya koshas. These five layers of coverings make us think that we are one person but actually we are five people.
Kriya is the cleansing process that removes all koshas from a person and helps a person to get in touch with their real self or soul.
