*Punyam and Paapam related to deeds of our Previous Birth Life Cycle*

Once a foreigner interested in the philosophy of Hinduism was waiting for darshan of Maha Periyava (Most revered Mahaswami) at Kanchi Mutt to clarify his doubt. Shortly, he got his appointment and without wasting time, he put forth his question.

"Swamiji, I understand all your concepts, value them but for one particular faith, namely the same soul taking various births, paapa, punya being carried forward to the next births etc…Can you please make me comfortable on this aspect?" Because, in all our religions, we get the reward for what we do in this birth only. For example, if we are honest, God is pleased and blesses us with benefits and we are dishonest, we get punished by Him".

At this point, Periyava asked him whether he owned a car and if he could do a favour of collecting some statistical information within Kancheepuram using his vehicle. The guest readily agreed, at the same time wondering why his question was not answered spontaneously.

"Please, Swamiji". "Go ahead. What is the service you want me to do now?"

Periyava said, "Please go around 10 maternity centres within Kancheepuram and collect the data of children born within the last 2 days such as the child's gender, health condition, parent's name, status, educational qualifications and time of birth.

The man said, "Fine, this is nothing, immediately rushed in his car like Lord Muruga goes in Thiruvilayadal and within a day he was back in the Matham with the exact statistics in front of Sri Maha Periyava. He went through the statistics, about 15 children were born in 10 hospitals, 8 female and 7 male infants, out of which 3 children had malnutrition defects, 2 children were the first child of highly rich parents, born in luxury hospitals while 4 were children of coolie labourers who already had a few children.

Maha Periyava now looked at the gentleman and started asking few questions:

Do you think any of these children have been honest or dishonest within 2 days of their birth? Probably they could not even recognise their own mother. So, they could neither have earned paapa or punya in this birth itself.

According to your concepts, all these children should be living exactly identical to each other, but not so practically, as some are ill, some are healthy, some are born to rich parents, some are born to poor parents.

Remember all children born on the same day, same longitude and latitude, you can't blame their horoscope which is going to be almost identical….

The gentleman was speechless! It is here the concept of previous birth erupts! All these children have taken their present birth according to their deeds (karma) and the resultant paapa, punya which they have accumulated from their previous births.
