All the phenomena of nature are governed by one important law, the law of causation, the
law of Karma. It is that law that keeps up the inner harmony and logical order of the universe. No
phenomena can escape from the operation of this mighty law.
The cause is bound in the effect and effect is in the cause. The effect is similar to the cause.
This world runs on this fundamental vital law. This law is inexorable and immutable.
Any action is bound to react upon you with equal force and effect. If you do some good to
another man, you are really helping yourself. Because there is nothing but the Self. “Atmaivedam
Sarvam” is the emphatic declaration of the Srutis or Upanishads. This virtuous action will react
upon you with equal force and effect. It will bring you joy and happiness.
